(Mason, MI, USA)
Hi, I'm 66 years old and I've found travel to be my thing. Experiencing someplace new is invigorating and connects me with the color and texture of life.
I'm a widower so I travel alone but I meet good people everywhere. I stay in small apartments or hostels, tote a backpack and carry a good city map... and I've had some amazing adventures.
In eastern Europe the beer is cheaper than water and small apartments are 12 bucks a night...Of course, my kind of travel isn't for everyone but it might work for you.
I've had a lot of older people tell me, Oh, I could never do something like that and when I ask them why they don't have an answer. Well, the answer is fear...the great inhibitor.
Now is our time and I suggest we take full advantage of it! Yes, boats in a harbor are safe but that's not what boats were built for.
Good luck and maybe I'll see you in Tallinn...
