Hi, I’m Christine – writer, traveller, baby boomer, foodie – celebrating life after working and all it has to offer, taking notes and photos along the way. BoomingOn is my way of sharing that with the world.

I live in fabulous Canberra and am a proud mum and grandma (we prefer ‘ Marsie’) to a growing tribe. I’ve written for years in different ways and now, as a recent retiree with more time to travel and embrace living, I’m keen to discover new adventures and experiences in this amazing world of ours, and inspire others to do the same.

I write about travelling, my home town, arts and entertainment, kids and family, and getting older and retirement. The fun things and sometimes the serious things. I keep it real, and try to make it fun. Life’s too short not to have a giggle. And maybe a tear or two.

I’d love you to join me on the trip (there’s a ‘Follow’ button at the bottom right of the blog. I find sometimes it’s a bit tricky and you might have to ‘hover’ around there to make it appear). And don’t be too shy to say hello.

Or pop in on Facebook  or Instagram.
