Are you beginning to plan your winter travel vacation? For some of us, cold weather becomes the impetus to seek out warmer climates or new locales- plans that can create some challenges as we get older. Especially for those of us without spouses or travel partners, solo travel can be expensive and anxiety provoking. Yet nearly one in four seniors who travel does so alone, according to Savvy Senior’s Jim T. Miller. Miller has put together a range of resources and websites that can help cut down costs and find travel companions for those of you considering a solo sojourn. Check out his recommendations Here. One interesting website you may want to check out is Solo Traveler, a website begun by Janice Waugh after she simultaneously became a widow and empty nester. Or, for those of you interested in giving back while you get away, there is the burgeoning opportunity for “voluntourism,” allowing you to combine travel and volunteerism, in sites around the world. So grab your backpack and check out this recent article on voluntourism Here.
