About

Thanks for joining us on our travel journey – we’re so glad you’re here!

I’m Lesley, and I’m a travel enthusiast, avid motorcyclist and aspiring retiree!  I realized a few years ago that I could retire from traditional work when I was 56 years old, hence Freedom56!

I’m know I’m ridiculously lucky to be in this position and I want to make the most of it.   I’ve always dreamed of having the freedom to travel, anywhere and everywhere!   I used my working years to travel extensively throughout the world in my precious time off  and always wanted to share my experiences!  My favourite destinations have been both close to home in North America as well as Europe, Asia and everywhere in between.

My partner Ross and I will be travelling via plane, train, automobile, motorcycle and RV, and maybe other ways too if we can find them!  We’re gearing up to travel full-time in 2020 but we’ve got lots of travel planned until then!  We’ve learned how to travel wisely (and with MUCH less money) using miles and points and will be sharing those tips & tricks with you too.

I want to share our passion to explore with you!  I love to write about what I learn, see and do, and share those experiences with you.  Let me take you with me around the world and be your eyes and ears.  I promise to share all the best of the world and some of the most interesting corners.  Join me!  Follow us on social media so you don’t miss out on anything new.  I’d love to hear your travel stories or questions too!  Email me at Lesley at freedom56travel.com

We were recently featured on GoTravelBlogs which is a really interesting site full of travel bloggers, and stories about their travel journeys.
