In this episode of the Sixty and Me Show, I speak with Nancy Parode, an experienced travel expert and writer on the topic of senior travel for About.com.
Women over 60 are often eager to travel and see the world. In fact, traveling is one of the things that many women most look forward to in retirement. Unfortunately, many of us feel that we just can’t afford the luxury of travel. So, to help you reach your dream destination faster, here are a few ideas for how you can save money on your travel costs.
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!
