Welcome to TITA S TRAVELS, a senior citizen-friendly travel blog! For foreigners, “tita” means “auntie/aunt” in Filipino, a term of endearment of the younger members of my family and younger friends. S is short for “Sylvia”, my first name.
This blog serves as my virtual diary of travels, food trips and just being a sentimental senior citizen (SC) to satisfy my insatiable passion for writing and adventure. In the process, it is a wonderful opportunity for me to share my escapades as well as other vital travel-related topics with other SCs (senior citizen) and soon-to-be SCs.
“SCapades” is the section of this blog which will feature my travel trips both domestic and international.
The “Spotted Must Eats!” section of this blog is for my food trips whether I’m craving for some healthy eats or I feel like going on a cheat day! Whenever possible, my dearest Nutritionist-Dietitian friend, Adele, well-known and respected in her field, will join me so SCs with dietary restrictions can be advised what to enjoy when dining out. You can call us the SENIOR FOODIE DUO. Pinoy Delights! will showcase the Filipino specialties per town/city as well as seasonal goodies and locally manufactured delights.
The “Sentimental” section consists of places I went to while growing up and are still existing till the present. Revisiting such places will surely bring back happy memories of my childhood and single life. I am so sure many Baby Boomers can relate to this sentimental journey.
The Smart Senior” section will feature assorted travel and food tips/information which would be useful to fellow SCs.
As Tita S, I want to continue visiting various destinations and hospitality establishments, and not regret having done so when I can no longer be able to enjoy such pleasures in life. I want to tick off, one by one, my bucket list till I can no longer remember such a list! Funny now but a sad fact of life.
The wanderer in me still yearns to wake up and welcome each new day in a different place waiting to be explored, to discover its beauty, interact with people from a different culture and savor delicious food and complementary beverages/concoctions. Even Seneca said: “Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.”
The world offers so much beauty in various cultures as well as God-given and man-made destinations … so many to visit in one’s lifetime, to experience and to appreciate such treasures! Thus, I hope to inspire other SCs to do the same, hopefully guided by the features in this blog.
So what are you waiting for? Join me in my travels!
I would love to hear from you, SCs! Write your comments below – destinations, hospitality establishments, other travel concerns.
