Welcome to “Adventure And Retire”, the travel blog was created to inspire baby boomers, retired individuals and newcomers to explore the world safely, adventurously and affordably. 

My name is Elaine and I am here to share my experiences and help you plan your next travel adventure. 


Why did I start my blog!!

While traveling, my family and friends always ask, take lots of pictures, where did you go, if the food was good and so on!!

We have traveled internationally, domestically, on cruises, and we want to share our knowledge with you.

We firmly believe that travel can be done on a budget without sacrificing enjoyment, and we are here to show you how.


What You’ll Learn Here!!

We travel 3-4 times a year and enjoy every moment without breaking the bank. 

Therefore, we share candid reviews of two/five-star hotels,  B&Bs, suitable places for families, cruises, and restaurants.


We also highlight our mistakes along the way. The information I share has been personally visited by us or has a family vacation. 


We love to explore cities, try new street foods and find off-beat attractions and charming little streets to visit. We use trains or buses to visit neighboring towns. 


Like you, we are real senior travelers who want to explore the world and see everything. Through our exciting and unforgettable experiences, we aim to inspire you to travel more and make the most of your trips.

Some random facts about me

The Important things:

I started this blog during Covid to share my love for photography and traveling. Through my lens, you can experience the places I’ve visited. My unique storytelling style and photos set my blog apart from others that focus on travel.


While I’m not a full-time traveler, I work from home on a small island in Montreal called Ile Perrot. I have a degree in Fashion Design and Flower Design and I completed a web design course, though I only use the design part with Photoshop and illustrations.


*I speak English and French and learning Spanish. 

*I have two sons and one grandson.

*I have been traveling for over 40 years with the kids or not!!

*I am still an amateur traveler and photographer. 

*We  enjoy family trips.


 The less important things:

* As a multidisciplinary artisan, I create various art forms such as copper jewelry, paintings, and more. 

* My photography style is mainly focused on macro shots of flowers, architecture, and landscapes. 

* I am passionate about creating illustrations and working with photos and computers. 

* However, you won’t find many photos of me as I am not fond of being in front of the camera.
