Travel is energizing, relaxing and wonderfully transformative. It is also good for your health.
A recent CNN show even claimed that travel for pleasure can add years to your life. Perhaps this is because activities associated with travel, like walking and social engagement are good for both the brain and body.
Many women my age say that they can’t travel because it is just too expensive. I would argue that, in many cases, options are simply not being considered.
Our lifestyle is now minimalistic so our travel style should represent the same.
Since 2013, we have travelled the world with too much luggage. Do you know the feeling? How many times have you packed clothes or even shoes that you didn’t even wear? Our goal was to travel lighter and smarter!
I’ll admit that, when it comes to finding the best cruise, price is probably the first thing that most of us look at. This is completely natural.

With the rest of the world waiting to be explored, why should you return to a place you have already visited?

When it comes to assessing my favorite massage experience in Bali, I have to admit it’s a bit like asking me to choose my favorite child.
Travel, at its best, will heal your soul, broaden your mind and deepen your understanding of the world. While some people think that cruises merely involve beaches, umbrella drinks and pre-planned shore excursions, you can find unusual cruises that will forever change your perspective.
Like many women in our community, I love trains. In fact, I enjoy traveling by train more than any other form of transportation. I love the conversations that trains encourage, the stunning vistas that they offer and the opportunities for reflection and personal growth that they support.
