    Comment
    Your life is not a problem to be solved but a gift to be opened. Many people only realize this when they turn 50. It is a very good age for new achievements and changes.

Here are some things that need to be changed in your life after 50. Travel Somewhere You’ve Never Been How long have you been denying yourself travel, justifying it with family responsibilities or lack of time?

  2. Important Considerations To Keep In Mind When Purchasing a Home Abroad

    Comment
    How likely is it that you’d purchase a home abroad? Most people would shake their head at the idea after considering all of the costs and logistics. However, there are actually many reasons why you might change your mind and why you might want to consider purchasing a home abroad. For example, some people might want to retire abroad because it’s surprisingly affordable, and others might want to move abroad because they’re just tired of their current country. Others might want to move home simply because they enjoy the country, and some may have found a life partner that lives in a different country. These are all completely valid reasons why you may want to...

    Comment
       Needs and wants change as you get older but travel is necessary, a necessity that enriches the soul and clears the mind. Want’s change at 50 plus, staying out all night is not as important as luxury bedding and fantastic spa facilities. One of the things that don’t change is the importance of getting away, and having a chance to connect with your friends. Of course, this is an outrageous generalisation, but most fabulous fifty-plus women we know prefer quality over quantity every time. So gather the crew and consider the possibilities that lay ahead. If you can’t go right now, you can plan and enjoy the research. We are starting with a Northern Iceland adventure. Northern Iceland – Reykjavik Statistics say that Iceland is one of the safest...

  5. Travel over 50: Making Your Time Away From Home Easier

    Comment
      We may not be able to travel right now with covid restrictions in place, but we can start to dream about where we would like to go and start planning. When life at home starts to get stale, it’s important that you’re able to find ways to change things up, and for some people that involves going away from home completely. It can be hard to take too much time away from home, as a lot of the time finding a place to stay can get very expensive, nor do you have access to much of your belongings. There are ways to make it easier to escape from your daily routine for...
  6. 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,...

  10. Author Sue Moorcroft talks about exploring Sweden to research locations for her book Christmas Wishes

    Comment
    Article by Sue Moorcroft Last December, I mentioned to my British-Swedish friend author Christina Courtenay that I was wondering where to set my next winter book. She suggested, ‘Make it Sweden and we can go together. We can stay with Mum.’ My editor agreed that Sweden would be a gorgeous Christmas setting – what’s not to love about snow and glögg? – and Christina transformed herself into my creative director, researcher, translator, PA, historian and travel guide. 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...
