Retirees are spoilt for choice when it comes to travel destinations. Time is no longer an issue. And with budget airlines offering discounted fares, we no longer have to save for years to see the world. Do a Google search and you will be amazed at the number of websites that cater to older travellers.

Senior travel clubs are proliferating. Join one. Or organize your own travel group. A group of retirees I know are organizing a trip to Tibet from Aug 13-20. There are limited places left. If you are keen, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
