Since we started the Participant Blog gallery earlier this year, we’ve received outstanding blog submissions from a number of great writers eager to share their firsthand accounts of lifelong learning with the Road Scholar community. The writers’ commitment to faithfully documenting their travels while providing profound insights into their experiences continues to inspire us. Their blog entries made us feel like we were right there with them on the program, whether it was crossing the historic Panama Canal with Bernadette, sailing around South America with Marcia, exploring the wondrous Galapagos Islands with Tina, or navigating the world’s most enchanting collection of national parks and monuments with Wendy.

We want to hear your stories too! Blogging has become an increasingly popular way to share experiences with friends and family and make connections with others who share similar interests. It gives you a unique chance to preserve memories and reflect on your adventures in a meaningful way. For those who are curious about what it’s like to go on a specific Road Scholar program, your blog would offer an in-depth preview of what future lifelong learners can expect. Your stories may even inspire readers to create blogs of their own and share their journeys!
If you would like to start your own blog about your Road Scholar experiences but are unsure how, check out our simple tutorial and find out how easy it is to set up a blog and share your experiences with friends, family and like-minded adventurers.
