Thank you for stopping by our page.

Exploring the world doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult.  It is possible to travel independently on a budget and gain a rich cultural experience.

We are a couple of Australian empty nesters who enjoy exploring the world, experiencing local cultures and visiting new places.

On these pages we share with you some of the amazing places we have visited, experiences we have had along the way and information which we hope will help you in researching and planning your own trip.

Lesley and Ian live on the pristine south coast of NSW, Australia.

Lesley is a former journalist, combining her passions for travel and writing with Ian’s love of photography, and recording some of the finer and unusual details of the places we visit. We share our recent and upcoming travels with fellow empty-nesters looking for inspiration and advice for their next trip.

When researching our first European holiday, we found there was very little specific information available to us.

As we travelled around, we kept our friends and family at home updated on our adventures through a daily facebook post.

Returning home, Lesley expanded this daily post into the Empty Nesters Travel Insights blog. Here we share some of our experiences and the things we have learned while travelling.

Our site is constantly growing as we add more stories on our overseas trips.

Advertising links

We do have a small amount of advertising on our pages to partially cover the cost of our time in maintaining our website.

The paid links to Amazon, from which we receive a very small commission, at no extra cost to our readers, are for travel books or products that we have actually bought ourselves and found helpful, so we hope you will also find them useful.

We do have some links in our articles, which we hope will be helpful in planning your trip.

Coming soon
