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.
