About Us

 

Boomer Women Travelers was created for the vibrant community of international women of the baby boomer generation who love to travel.

Founder and editor Catherine Sweeney along with other professional travel bloggers/writers and boomer travelers from all walks of life share experiences and ideas to inform and inspire.

Although our particular age group is a common bond, it doesn’t identify who we are or how we travel. Let’s celebrate our common bond as well as our individuality by sharing our love for travel!

Catherine’s passion for travel goes back to her childhood in the Chicago area when her family crisscrossed North America on road trips. Today, as a boomer woman traveler she still approaches new destinations as well as familiar favorites with eager anticipation and youthful enthusiasm. She is founder and editor of Traveling With Sweeney, where she and frequent travel companion, Mr. TWS, collaborate to entertain and inspire. Catherine also contributes guest posts to other high quality travel blogs and is a manager of several travel-related Facebook communities. Previously, Catherine was founder, editor and publisher of First Dog Barking, an innovative travel website and e-newsletter that focused on traveling with pets.
