My Itchy Travel Feet | The Baby Boomer's Guide To Travel

donna-hull-hidden-meadow-ranchThe travel bug is like an itch you can’t quite scratch. I call it itchy feet.

Hi, I’m Donna Hull, a freelance writer specializing in travel and human interest content for print publications and the web. Here at My Itchy Travel Feet, I write about active travel for baby boomers. And, I should know because I am one.

From a jeep adventure in Canyon de Chelly to luxury cruising above the Arctic Circle, I write travel stories that capture the essence of place combined with the thrill of discovery. My work is concentrated mostly at online markets such as the PBS site for boomers, Next Avenue, and at My Well-Being Powered by Humana where I write a monthly column on boomer travel. You’ll also find my articles at Uptake.com, iExplore, Living Better at 50+ and Affordable Tours.

My Itchy Travel Feet content is syndicated at AZ Voices Network (Arizona Republic Newspaper online site). And, I’m proud to say that we were one of the five finalists for Best Travel Blog in the 2011 Bloggies. I say “we” because my husband Alan is the photographer and behind-the-scenes travel planner for this boomer duo.

I’d invite you to read my print travel articles but most of the magazines have ceased publication. But, once upon a time, I wrote for AZ3Sixty Magazine, Lovin Life After 50, Fifty Plus, Live Life Travel, Oro Valley Marana Magazine, Her Sports + Fitness Magazine plus many others.

I’m a member of Travel Insights 100, an online panel of travel thought leaders from around the world. And at Boomer Authority, I’m one of the founding members of the 46-64 Boomer Initiative.

Finally, what does love have to do with a piano? If you read my essay, Piano Love, on page 226 of Chicken Soup for the Soul, Love Stories, you’ll find out.
