Researching holiday and travel destinations has never been easier. The internet gives us copious amounts of information right at our fingertips for free. However with so much information out there on the world wide web, sometimes it’s hard to know where to start and who to trust.
Here at Best Of The Kimberley, we understand everyone has different travel styles and objectives for what they want out of a holiday or an extended time travelling. Therefore, today, we wanted to focus on sharing with you some of our favourite over 50’s travel bloggers.
This bunch of mature travel bloggers have been here, there and everywhere. Through their blogs and social media channels, you can gain tips and tricks for different destinations or purely follow along with wanderlust.

Linda and Scotty are the New Zealand couple behind Kiwis Fly The Coop. They have put their belongings in a storage unit and are trying to see as much of the world as possible. Boy are they having some amazing adventures! We love this quote on their blog:
“We don’t want to be sitting in a rest home talking about the trips we should have or could have done.”
From southeast Asia to house sitting in France and Italy, there’s a little bit of everything! You’ll enjoy posts of local food and drinks to amazing sights and experiences they encounter.

Jo is so great at blogging that she has not one but two blogs and we love it! Lifestyle Fifty is a fashion, lifestyle and travel blog aimed at women over 50. What a perfect combination, right ladies? And Zigazag is Jo’s Western Australian specific travel blog.
You may have seen us post about Zigazag before as we have collaborated with Jo on a couple of guest posts, such as this piece on 5 Almost Free Things To Do in Broome.
We love Jo’s approachable and friendly written blog posts. Not to mention her fashion tips are on point!
We don’t know how she finds the time, but Jo also posts on social media for both blogs (she’s one busy lady!). Head over to the website links above to find her social media pages.

Pam is the lady behind the travel blog, Travellingbag. At 40 Pam completed an Arts degree at the University of Western Australia and PhD in Classics and Ancient History. Then on her 60th birthday, Pam trekked to Everest Base Camp. She wrote a book about it alongside her travel experiences later in life.
