Old Birds Nest Page. The Ethos of Going it Alone.

Every journey I go on, I go alone.

Hello my name is Rebecca Taylor, and I’m here to guide you older birds on braving the big old world out there, and doing it alone. Come with me and I’ll nurse you through the highs and lows of being an old bird travelling solo. Any questios please contact me at:

This is more a raucous journal with some culture and tips thrown in. Don’t worry you’ll get the hang of it. It’s sometimes shouty sweary so if you’re a delicate bird you’ll have to excuse me. Click below on the type of trip you’re interested in to get an idea how I go about this particular type of travelling wonder before going to that “category” in the blogs. Off you go and clickety click! Go first to OLD BIRD FLYING SOLO so we can shake hands then anywhere in the list that you wish to get started. xxxx

GUIDE FOR MORE MATURE BIRDS TO TRAVEL THE WORLD ALONE!

This is the place for an older birdie to visit and, hopefully gain the confidence to strike out on their own. Yes, us older birds don’t always have to be in a flock, they can do it alone and it’s not as scary as you think! Have a look at the pages on this site to understand the whole concept, then have a read of the blog.

OR THE ART OF MATURE TRAVELLING.

The world is your oyster, as an older woman or man indeed, you should be out there doing all these things and revelling in life.

I will hop around timewise as the writing of the diary becomes insignificant when you’re experiencing so many wonderful things.

Some of it is funny and some plainly ludicrous but all a part of an old bird travelling solo! Enjoy!

I’ll take you all over the world. In different forms of transport, doing different activities, eating different kinds of food and exploring places you never even thought about before. I will attempt to nurse you through any pitfalls with hints and tips and generally share the whole experience warts and all.

I’ll many times be daft as a brush and screw up so you don’t have to. I’ll get you there with your preparations, nurse your anxieties, laugh at myself and show you stuff you might want to see and do.

Welcome to the fine art of mature solo travelling.
