  3. Travel over 50: Benefits of Backpacking

    Comment
      Travel may be off limits at the moment while we battle the pandemic, but that doesn’t stop us from dreaming of far off climes and planning where we would like to go once restrictions are lifted. When most of us think of backpacking, we imagine sprightly 20-year-olds fresh out of education and raring to see the world. Think fun, sun, adventure and, in most of our minds anyway, youth. Ahh, those travelling days are the best of our lives. Or at least, they could’ve been, if you were ever able to realise your backpacking dreams. Sadly, money worries and general fear prevent many of us from ever travelling the way we’d like to when we’re young. While some fearless youngsters do set off regardless,...

She created an itinerary between Småland, the area of southern Sweden in which her mother lives, and Stockholm. Airline bookings, hire car invoices and event tickets flooded my inbox. She arranged everything except the hotel in Stockholm. That was my only duty...
