Most of us dread the idea of growing old, but not everyone has to become a Victor Meldrew character, and in fact recent research has suggested that people in their 60s and 70s are fundamentally happier than those between the ages of 30 and 50.
According to recent research by Silver Travel Advisor, 83% of over 50s feel they have over 25 healthy years of travel ahead of them, 74% are taking more holidays than they did before they turned 50, and 43% feel more adventurous in their 50s than they have before!
As we at Holidaysafe know first-hand, the majority of today’s ‘elderly’ are now using their retirement to travel the world, ticking items off an ever-growing bucket list of amazing experiences and adventures. Whoever said that travelling is only for the young was totally out of touch with the modern world. Today’s so-called ‘senior citizens’ are fitter and stronger than their predecessors, and 70 is definitely the new 40!
If you’re struggling to decide what to tick off your bucket list next, US News and World Report have created a ‘World’s best places to visit 2016’ list, based on expert opinions, user votes and current trends. Unsurprisingly, the Great Barrier Reef came in first place, followed by Paris and Bora Bora.
Retired couple Paula and Michael Webster are tearing down ‘senior’ stereotypes by spending their new found freedom travelling the World. Paula, aged 63, a former Head of Maths, and her husband Michael, age 65, a former research and development worker, are currently thousands of miles away from their Leicester home travelling South America in a 4×4 Toyota Hilux.
When travelling abroad, most people usually focus on all the rest and relaxation their trip will bring, but many forget the physical effects that travelling can have on their body. Below, we’ve listed some of the most common issues, and ways in which you can counteract them to stay healthy abroad whilst travelling.
Actor Roy Billing is starring in a new campaign labelled #SaySorryLater, which encourages senior travellers to embark on new adventures, instead of becoming bogged down in family responsibilities.
Holidays are meant to be a time to relax and unwind, but for some they are extremely stressful – the rush to get everything prepared in time, a fear of flying and a lack of control can make even the best traveller extremely anxious.
As many of us already know, modern pensioners are far from ‘past it’, and are in fact ready and willing to live life to the full. They have more disposable income and time after retirement, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that many choose to spend their golden years travelling the world.
