In this episode of the Sixty and Me Show, I share a conversation with Evelyn Hannon, a fascinating woman who is a celebrated and internationally recognized globetrotter and writer. She is also the creator of Journeywoman.com, a website for women travelers of all ages.
Many women over 60 love to travel, but don’t want to travel alone. If you’re looking for alternatives to traveling solo, perhaps you would do well to find a good travel partner.
I remember the time that I stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Dubai on a business trip. The room must have cost as much as I now pay per month in rent. Of course, taking a bath in rose petals is amazing (when someone else is paying), but, for personal travel I prefer simplicity and value for money.
By the time we reach our sixties, most women who love to travel have a pattern of planning that works for them. We follow rituals of packing, planning and preparation, remembering from past experience and anticipating things that just might go wrong. However, personally, I always forget something!
