About me

I'm an over 50 blogger and social media influencer. One of my blogs, is a travel site for Los Angeles things to do at any age. I'm also the founder of, a lifestyle/travel blog for active older women. I've been a professional voice actor for the last 40+ years and am best known for my anime roles under the name Rebecca Forstadt.

My thirst for exploring the world has included trips to Spain, Italy, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Germany, the Czech Republic, Portugal, England, the Caribbean, and Mexico as well as throughout the United States. Topics I often write about include travel, cuisine (I'm a diehard foodie), wine-tasting, cruising, wellness, longevity, anti-aging, entertainment, pop culture events, theater and local history.

When I'm not traveling, I love to write about my hometown in Los Angeles and nearby destinations in Southern California. Some of my interests include attending film screenings, live theater, culinary events, historical and natural points of interest.
