Launched in the spring of 2017, GettingOnTravel is a a multi-authored, online travel magazine uniquely catering to the over-50 luxury traveler. We may be young, but we’re gearing up for a strong growth trajectory and online presence!
GettingOnTravel was co-founded by two professional, award-winning travel writers and bloggers – Irene S. Levine and Janice Mucalov – who each have their own travel blogs, MoreTimeToTravel and SandInMySuitcase, respectively (that have snagged top blog awards). Joining them in contributing to the magazine is a highly talented team of other travel writers and bloggers.
Everyone involved in the site understands the special pleasures of the travel experience at midlife and beyond.
Also, GettingOnTravel is a women-owned enterprise currently with predominantly female writers. According to Forbes, more than 80 percent of travel decisions (including those that involve spouses or partners) are made by women! Of course, we aim to appeal to all of our readers, no matter what their gender.
Our reviews, travel stories and tips are targeted to mid-life travelers who like a touch of luxury on their trips. Many are seasoned travelers. They want to be inspired by new experiences and seek a fresh take on travel. And they have the money to pamper themselves a little on their trips.
