Firstly, my name’s Jackie Gately (that’s me posing beside my dream car!) and I’m a full time travel blogger. I started this new career close to 5 years ago when I became an empty-nester.

Enjoy Travel Life is a blog devoted to helping empty-nesters enjoy traveling and embrace a travel lifestyle.

But it’s not just for empty-nesters. It’s for anyone who adores travel like I do. 

In fact, more and more people are working remotely, becoming digital nomads, taking road trips, moving abroad, and just dreaming about far away places these days. 

That’s why I write about:

  • Travel hacks
  • Helpful travel tips
  • Hotel reviews
  • and of course, so many fabulous destinations!

On Enjoy Travel Life, you’ll find all those things and more.

Where Should You Start?

If you want to learn about the reasons for this blog and my experience as a travel blogger, head over to my About Page.

You might also like to see some of the reasons travel is important for you (at any age), or some pointers on reinventing yourself after the empty-nest.

If you’re new to travel, you might find this ‘road trips for beginners‘ article and my resource on where to find flight deals online useful.

And you’ll find plenty of dream destinations, from picturesque Cape Cod and New England to dreamy European vacations, Caribbean islands, and beyond.

To round things out here, you’ll also discover lifestyle articles about home & garden, foodie delights, and even aging beautifully. Because most of us can’t always be traveling, although we wish to be!

If you like what you read here you can follow my future entries (I write 3-5 posts per week) in two ways – either using our RSS News feed or you can get weekly updates by adding your email address to the field at the the bottom of this page (“I want to travel!). Then, you’ll get weekly(ish) newsletters with updates from this site plus extra stuff just for subscribers.

Resources for Travelers

Most of what you’ll find here on Enjoy Travel Life is 100% free. That includes my resource library with lots of free downloads. However I’m excited to be launching a comprehensive Travel Planning Workbook that you might find helpful. If that sounds interesting to you, I’ll be announcing a waiting list soon.

Last but not least, I selectively partner with quality brands and other bloggers, so feel free to read about working with me and send me an inquiry.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy your stay at Enjoy Travel Life. If you do have any questions feel free to drop me a note in a comment below or email me at jackiegately@enjoytravellife.com. I’d love to hear from you!
