Golden Age Traveling in Idaho
Golden Age Traveling Blog exploring Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Hi there!
We are Eugene and Samantha Taki and are so happy you stopped by!

Thank you for making my day and taking the time to read our Golden Age Traveling Blog. It is about our family and our travels through the US, Canada, Caribbean, Europe and Mexico.  As of this post, we have been to 49 states and 10 or 11 countries. It’s not as many as some people, but way more than some. Our goal was to reach every state here in the US by 2025, and our 50th state, Deleware, is scheduled for the middle of May!!! We are more than excited to achieve this goal. 🙂 For the history buffs out there, we did save the 1st state for the last state we visited. You can learn more about us on my Get to Know US page.  With that said, Gene and I both joined the 55+ club a few years ago, thus I have decided to not only share our travels, but also share hotel reviews, destinations, cruise information, and tips on how to travel smart for the 55+ club crowd.

Like I said though, the Golden Age Traveling blog was designed for other people who enjoy traveling regardless of age and want to read about our vacation and the activities that are available in that area.   Maybe our stories will bring back some pleasant memories for you from a previous vacation. I enjoy writing about our trips and reliving them through pictures and stories. Hopefully you will enjoy reading about our trips. Please feel free to reply and let me know about your trip or what you thought about our trip in the box below. I would love to hear from you.

If you see something you would like me to share on my blog, please feel free to Email Me. I am always looking for great information to share with my readers. If you are a fellow blogger, I would love to share links.

I promise to respond to messages ASAP. And don’t forget to share and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pintrest @goldenagetraveling.  I created this blog and website in hopes to help feed my travel fever. So far, all it has done is make me want to travel more, lol. However, I love it, so please keep sharing! Again, please feel free to drop us a message below.

Our Latest Adventures

We were so excited to visit our 49th state in early March, Rhode Island! We only had two full days after traveling, but we made the most of it. While I am shareing a few things about our trip below, you can also check out my 48 Hours in Rhode Island post with more information about our visit. We spent most of the 1st day in Newport, which is a cute little seaside city about 33 miles southeast of Providence. While there we were able to visit Easton Beach and do part of the Cliff Walk. I also love bridges and lighthouses, and were happily able to see quite of few of both. While in Newport we also had to drive around and check out some of the HUGE mansions in the area. We alos made sure to take some time and visited the Whie Horse Tavern which is the oldest tavern in the US and 10th in the world. Pretty cool to sit and have a drink while taking in its history. Here are some pictures from Newport.


The 2nd day we spent exploring Providence. The first thing on our list was the Rhode Island State House where we were able to do a self guided tour and learn some history about Rhode Island. Of course you can’t visit Providence without exploring Roger Willaims Park. The park is named after Roger Williams, the founder of the city of Providence and the primary founder of the state of Rhode Island. Sadly it was raining, and a lot of stuff was still closed for the season, but we had a great time walking around the beautiful Japanese and Botanical Gardens. We even saw a swam swimming around. Another thing we had to do in Rhode Island was try some Rhode Island Clam Chowder. It is not creamy like New England or red like Manhattan. It is a clear soup and very flavorful. I am so glad I tried it and hope to have it again on a future trip to the area. We also tried a few local cracft breweries and they didn’t disappoint. If you are looking for a good brew and pretzels, make sure to check out the Malted Barley. They even had a few games to play.  Here are a few pictures from Providence.
