  2. Best Places to Travel in Your Fifties

    Comment
      While most people associate world travel with gap year backpackers, recent studies show that it’s women over 50 who are leading the boom for solo travel in recent years, so if you’ve not yet jumped on the trend, it’s time to start thinking about where you can go.  You can go on a short jaunt away or take a long trip that can open your eyes to other parts of the world, but whatever you do, you’ll bring with you a wealth of experience and a chance to see what all the fuss is about.  And if you don’t want to go alone, that’s okay, too.

  3. Why escorted tours are a great travel option for over 50s

    Comment
      With travel having become easier and cheaper than ever, more and more of us devote our free time to exploring new countries, whether it’s closer to home in Europe or on the other side of the world. It also means there are so many more options to choose from when it comes to deciding how to travel; among your choices are do-it-yourself holidays where everything has to be booked separately, package holidays, escorted tours or even simply buying a one-way ticket and finding a place to stay when you arrive.   For over 50s with a taste for adventure and the desire to explore somewhere new without the hassle and stress of arranging the logistics, an escorted tour may be one of the best ways to travel.

  5. Opportunities for volunteering overseas over 50

    Comment
    How many of us have helped our intrepid 18 year olds to get ready to head off on a gap year or an amazing summer of travel and adventure? How many of us have thought, why didn’t I do this? It’s time to change that question to be: Why haven’t I done this yet? What can I do? For years, gap years have offered students the opportunity to explore the world, to volunteer on some life changing missions and to meet like minded people from all walks of life. In recent times however, people of all ages have started embracing the idea of a gap year and made it work for them. From those taking a career break to those launching into retirement with a bang, to...
  6. Shaking Life Up a Bit: Combining Travel with Volunteering

    Comment
    Article by Diana Hudson Life is busy with work and managing families, and we can sometimes lose sight of what really excites us. We put our own lives on the back burner, always waiting for that “opportune” moment when we promise ourselves that we will do something for ourselves again. But how likely is it that the opportune moment will present itself? Imagine if you were chatting to a friend who needed to have a change of scene. You would be full of ideas of how this could be done: make a few plans, swap with colleagues and friends, pull in a couple of favours, cook up some dinners and pop them in the freezer. A few weeks wouldn’t be too much to...

  9. A Review of the Bookaway Travel Booking Platform

    Comment
    When you’re in the remotest travel destinations of the world, especially in the Southeast Asian countries, making bookings for ground travel can prove to be a far more difficult task than planning a holiday altogether! We live in an era when you can easily make flight and hotel bookings on your mobile phone, within a few minutes. However, when it comes to buying train and bus tickets in some developing countries, you might still need to visit a local agent and sometimes even wait in long queues. It is to solve such problems that a platform like Bookaway came into existence.   About Bookaway’s services Bookaway offers more than 2000 routes in different parts of the world, especially in...
