Who is Midlifewanderlust1965?

Who is midlifewanderlust1965? What can I tell you about me? My name is Steve Whitty. I live in Sutton Coldfield in the UK.  I am a man in his mid life who enjoys travelling, backpacking and staying in hostels. Hopefully this blog will inspire others to do the same.

September 2011 saw me laying in a hospital bed thinking I was having a heart attack. It turned out to be stress related. From there I knew that things had to change. I turned to travel as it was something that I had always enjoyed. Now it has become my passion.

In this blog I want to share my stories and tips with you. You are never too old to start. If you have a passion you should pursue it. My dream is to undertake some form of long term travel.

There are not many items on my bucket list. The major on is to spend a year living overseas and having to survive by learning the language.

My other passions are listening to music. Where would I be without Spotify. Also love to read. Always following the fortunes of Walsall FC. I am also a lover of history. I will find myself looking at places of historical interest. I am also a vegetarian who is fond of ice cream and coffee.

I try to live my life by sticking to three rules, staying safe, staying healthy and keeping smiling.

    Thanks for the follow! I really enjoyed your posts about Madrid. I’ll have to come back and check out the others too.

  2. Hi Steve,
    Thanks for your Prado post. If you’re ever in Paris and would like to go on a Treasure Hunt at the Louvre, drop me a line. I came across your blog from a DestinationEU tweet – I mention this, only because I always like to know how people found me. It’s been a pleasant visit, will stop by again.
    Kind regards,

    Hey Steve, thnxs for following back! I’m newish around here…well started yrs ago, but didn’t make the commitment to learn & grow as a writer till recently. Anywho, thnxs again for reading & reciprocating. I too am in love with travel. But duty calls, must hold down a job so travel is scarce for now. Had to google Walsall FC…& i get it now. Well I look forward to exploring your blog. :)

    Hi there, thanks so much for liking and following the Sunshine Scrapbook! I like your blog and story; I have serious wanderlust too but at this point don’t have the means to attain it. I think it’s wonderful that you’ve been able to visit so many places! I certainly aspire to that 😀
