Travel Over Fifty
Aging Baby Boomers tend to travel differently and I would say somewhat smarter. We look for conveniences that pamper us on our long or short journeys.
Hopefully, we no longer over pack. We find the lightest weight luggage for the best price. If we travel often, we learn that heavy luggage only leads to backaches and more chiropractic visits than we care to admit. We no longer pack heavy carry on luggage or pretty bags that weigh a ton. We opt for good looking and practical. Everything gets lighter as we tend to have to get our stiff bodies from terminal to terminal and if we lug stuff with us, we always swear we will never do it again. It takes us a few times to get this. If we have anything at all with us, it has wheels or fits in an appropriate looking back pack.
We tend to want rooms with a view. We like to take our time and enjoy our surroundings. Personally, I love a lanai where I can sit and sip a glass of good wine and indulge in reading an awesome mystery. I enjoy the ability to sit outside in wonderful weather and write articles like this. I prefer the comforts of home away from home. We aging baby boomers tend to pick scenery, fabulous dining experiences, delectable wine and some of us, golf courses that create an ambiance of sport and visual delight.
We all have our dreams of travel. We all have something we enjoy. How many of you are creating them as your reality? Are you making any of them happen or are you waiting to retire? I vote on these experiences now in my life. How about you?
