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.
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!
Most women in our community travel to relax, rewind and rejuvenate.
In the west, we live hectic lives and often feel stressed and over committed. Some of us – present company included – spend too much time online. Others live in busy towns and cities, where we practice unhealthy eating habits and live with toxic air.
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.
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.
Setting aside the usual aging stereotypes, it’s clear that women over 60 love to travel. We love to explore the world and find new adventures. We love embracing new cultures and meeting new people.
But, this raises an interesting question. What is our favorite way to travel? Do the majority of us like to fly to exotic destinations? Or, would most of us prefer to travel by train?
Is it still possible to find amazing senior travel discounts? This was the question that I posed to train expert, Mark Smith during our last interview. After all, if anyone would know how to find the best travel deals, it’s Mark.
When was the last time that you really enjoyed taking a flight? Even if you’re a seasoned traveler, the idea of standing in line, dealing with grumpy passengers and eating airplane food probably isn’t too appealing.
One thing that I know about the women in our community is that we love to travel. Of course, we may not always get to jet off to exotic destinations, but, we take every opportunity that we can to see the world. This could include taking a cruise, traveling by train or just driving to see the grandkids in the next city.
