NeverStopTraveling is a site designed for travelers 50 years of age and older, although others are also welcome to poke around a bit.
Our purpose is to present information on destinations and experiences in an easy-to-read format, usually through short articles, videos and blogs about things that make a destination unique. These “travel tidbits” tell you what’s of interest around the world and provide information on many things you may never have thought to do or experience. To further help we provide links to additional, credible information whenever possible.
Although launched with a guide to destinations throughout Europe, a guide to North America, including the USA, Canada and Mexico, will be added shortly, followed by guides to South and Central America, Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle-East. New destinations (as well as continual updates on those already published) are added weekly.
This is a guide to experiencing the best of the world, not just its luxuries. We welcome your participation and your input.

Carla Marie Rupp
Carla Marie Rupp has been everywhere from Kansas to Kerala, plays instruments from the tenor sax and flute to the fiddle, and loves festivals of all kinds, particularly if they involve music, food or film. Traveling on business was the favorite part of her first magazine job in New York City and now she loves to go back to her family farm in Kansas (Dad Carl was a wheat farmer and there are still three horses in the pasture), or to Denver to see her nieces and family or to Thailand to see her writer/photographer/actor/artist son Jason. Carla will travel anywhere on the planet for her adventures and admits she’ll never stop traveling!
When Bill Warelis was still a teenager he took off to London alone to work, travel Europe and find himself. He didn’t work much and the only thing he found was that he loved seeing new places. He returned to Canada, married a wonderful woman who shared his passions, and spent his career in communications working with a variety of travel-related clients and taking vacations as frequently as possible. It was only recently, almost 35 years after his first trip, that Bill realized there are people other than his family and friends who might be interested in his travel-related thoughts and experiences.
The cost of most of the travel (including transportation, hotels, meals, etc.) to develop articles for NeverStopTraveling, including our blog and other related content, is personally funded. We are never compensated to provide opinions or ratings.
At times, however, we do participate in media or familiarization trips sponsored by destinations or other travel entities, in which transportation, accommodations, meals and other travel-related services may be provided. Participation in such trips never influences NeverStopTraveling’s content — everything you read is the personal opinion of its editors and writers, of sources we trust or of readers who choose to make online comments.
We tell you the truth about our experiences in those places we visit, relating both the good and the bad, and if we believe something is inappropriate for our readers, it will not appear on this site. Companies or their representatives who invite us on media or familiarization trips are advised of this in advance.
Finally, although we make every possible effort to link only to sites that provide the most useful information to our readers, we can not be responsible for any content that appears on those sites.
