GettingOnTravel: New online magazine for over-50 luxury travelers

In TRAVEL TIPS etc. by Janice and George2 Comments

Who knew you could don a tail and be a mermaid for a day in Anguilla! (And don’t worry, you’re NEVER too old to be a mermaid.)

And now the beautiful new Viking Sky is out. We cruised in the Baltic on her big sister Viking Star – hailed as the “world’s best new cruise ship” when she was launched. Now we’d love to cruise the Med like experienced cruise writers John and Sandra Nowlan. Their Viking Sky cruise took them to some lesser-known Mediterranean destinations like Pag, Croatia, and Koper, Slovenia.

And if you make your way over to Ireland, you could see spirits. As in whiskey. Take a tour of the Jameson Old Midleton Distillery, and you’ll learn all about how to turn grain into Irish whiskey.


These are just some of the stories you can read on GettingOnTravel.

What’s GettingOnTravel?

If you haven’t heard, GettingOnTravel (GOT) is a new, online, multi-authored travel magazine. What’s different about it is that it’s geared to the over-50 luxury traveler. Perhaps like us, you’ve crossed that 50 line? Then you’ll want to check out its travel stories.

Most stories on GOT share why the particular destination, cruise or hotel is appealing to the 50+ luxury traveler, as well as any points you’d want to know about (like how much walking you have to do on a tour, or whether music around the hotel pool is loud).

Great writers

Now for the shameless self-promotion… I’m co-publishing GOT with fellow award-winning travel writer Irene S. Levine, who produces the MoreTimeToTravel blog.

(My husband and writing partner George is helping too, as is Irene’s husband and photographer Jerry.)

And we have a terrific team of highly talented travel writers and bloggers who are regular contributors. We have an expert in the niche of chocolate travel, an environmental lawyer passionate about conservation and green travel, a retired school administrator and writer who’s visited France so many time it’s become her second home, a husband-wife team of cruise aficionados, foodies and “Certified Culinary Travel Professionals,” writers who specialize in sun-and-sea destinations and more… Most are mid-life travelers themselves who understand the readers that GettingOnTravel reaches.

A fresh look at luxury for mid-life travelers

GettingOnTravel offers a fresh take on luxury for the over-50 traveler. GOT stories are about the luxury of attending concerts by rockers from the 70s, visiting the Belize jungle in comfort, cruising the Caribbean on a ship catering to grown-ups (no boisterous crowds), sleeping overnight at the Museum of Natural History in New York (champagne included) and barging with grandkids in Europe.

To be sure you don’t miss any stories, you can sign up for free on GOT’s site for our weekly newsletter. Just fill in your email in the right side-bar under “Get it From GOT.”

See you on GOT!

George and will still be sharing our tales of luxury travel with a twist of adventure here on SandInMySuitcase. But if you happen to see fewer stories, it’s because I’m so busy over on GOT!

  1. Congratulations on your new venture Janice and George! What a great concept! I’ve just recently heard you can sleep overnight in the Natural history museum here in London too so am really intrigued to give it a try next time the opportunity arises!
