I thought our “flying off in the sunset” image, as well as the accompanying post, made it clear that Travel For Boomers is no longer an active blog. However, I continue to receive email from writers who want to submit a guest post. So let me make it clearer:


We don’t want to take TFB down because there’s a lot of good content here. But we aren’t adding fresh content so, please, do not contact me asking to guest post!

Thanks, and happy travels!

Too Old For Vegas
