Through 2016 and the first half of 2017 we travelled through 54 countries, including 30 states of the US and 7 Canadian provinces. We learned something new every day, so we thought we'd share some of our travel learnings and tips here. Hopefully some fellow travellers will find them useful.

We've labelled this page ''tips for older travellers'' because we've tried to comment on a few things that we know some travellers of our age are put off by when it comes to organising independent trips, such as transport (ie isn't it easier if someone organises this for you?) and food and water (ie won't I get sick?).

But many of the tips will be just as useful for younger travellers. In that sense the tips apply to anyone not familiar with travelling in the countries we cover here.
