McCool Travel Tips: 5 Minutes With Donna Hull

McCool Travel is excited to present tips from travel experts in our 5 Minutes interview series featuring travel industry giants, super frequent travelers, and adventurous persons.

For the 17th profile, I am honored to present Donna Hull. Donna writes about active travel for baby boomers at MyItchyTravelFeet.com. She says, “The travel bug is like an itch you can’t quite scratch. I call it itchy feet.” Using personal travel experiences, My Itchy Travel Feet offers information about where to go, what to do, where to stay, where to eat and how to prepare for an active baby boomer trip. Through well researched articles, eye-catching photography and videos, My Itchy Travel Feet opens the world of energetic travel to baby boomers.

Donna grew up in Atlanta (evident by one answer below!), currently lives in Tucson and is preparing to move into a second residence in Stevensville, Montana. She took a few minutes to share her these travel tidbits in between trips, writing, and preparing for the move. For more information about Donna please read her full bio.

  1. I love following Donna’s blog. Huh, I didn’t know she wanted to meet an astronaut but that makes sense since she’s always traveling and, well, space would be the ultimate destination.
