Welcome to CORR Travel
Hi, I’m Gwen, and I’m the Founder and Managing Editor of CORR Travel. Thank you very much for dropping by CORR Travel for your over 50 solo travel inspiration and planning.
I know how overwhelming it can feel planning your trip(s) all by yourself, especially if you work or have kids, and have to fit your planning (and vacationing) in here and there around your busy life.
Add the fact that you take the trip by yourself, pay for it all by yourself, and, well, we’re all getting a little older… it’s understandable if any personal safety anxiety, ‘being alone on your trip’ anxiety, or ‘is this trip worth the money’ anxiety, starts to creep in.
Hopefully, though, all of those feelings will be a thing of the past with CORR Travel.
You can travel solo over 50, and my mission is to be your over 50 solo travel guide. I want to inspire the over 50’s – whether you’re a working mom or baby boomer, novice or experienced traveler, male or female – to plan and follow through on your travel dreams with your best eco-friendly foot forward – no matter where it is.
My job here is to equip you, the over 50 traveler, with resources and knowledge from my solo travel planning and travel experiences – past and present.
Why? So, you can plan and execute your trip with fewer worries and feel more confident your dream vacation, or next bucket list destination, by yourself will be as successful as possible and feel it was money well spent.
Also, so you understand your travel dreams can be realized through solo travel at a later time in life.
Don’t worry if you’re not a solo traveler. I’m confident CORR Travel will be able to help you for your travel inspiration and planning, too.
Why should you listen to me? I have over 25 years of solo travel experience, not to mention the years of traveling beforehand – from road trips to international travel – that I have planned by myself while on a budget and working as a full-time professional. And I never had a bad time.
Yep, I’ve managed to log some considerable time in the travel world while holding down a full-time job, and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon. If anything, I’ve been expanding my territory and experiences.
I started kayaking at the age of 47; got my Open Water Diver certification at the age of 48; and, started volunteering as a scuba diver (while getting my Advanced Diver certification) for marine and coral reef conservation work at the age of 49.
I also started CORR Travel at 49. Since then, however, I have upgraded my focus to over 50 travel.
I’ve also chucked the employer and left my job to start this blog so I can finally log in more travel time to hit all of those countries across all continents I’ve been longing to go to. I’m hoping this will allow me to live abroad soon.
Perhaps you care about my travel dreams or not. That’s ok. The point is, you’ll know that my over 50 (and over 40) travels – solo or not – are not about to end any time soon so I can keep you “in the know”. You dream on what travel you want to do and I’ll do my best to help you get there.
How? I will provide you global travel guides on destinations I have traveled to; travel resources to help with your travel planning; and, my best possible travel planning and budget tips, travel itineraries, and voluntourism ideas through my travel blog.
As a bonus, I’ll add in safety tips and booking and product suggestions.
I also provide eco-friendly and sustainable travel tips and product and service suggestions. Did I mention I hold an MBA in Sustainable Enterprises, I am a LEED AP accredited professional, and I have an Environmental Sustainability blog, too? Yep, travel is my passion but environmental sustainability is my “religion”.
If you want more tips on how to lower your eco and carbon footprints for a more sustainable lifestyle, check me out on CORR Concepts (shameless plug).
But wait, there’s more! For solo travel inspiration, I’ll provide my travel stories and photographs to keep you motivated to go on that trip you’ve been dreaming about or are already planning.
So, breathe. I’m Gwen Corrie, and I’m here to be your Solo Travel Over 50 Guide. Don’t worry – you got this.
Now, let’s get you traveling. Why wait?
“You’re off to great places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So…Get on your way!”
