My husband and I are an older couple (65 & 71) and when we first started going to Europe we took tours and soon found out that we could go there on our own. Last year we got a rail pass and traveled all over Germany.
So, my tip is to learn a little of the language and with a smile on your face ask questions. The people we talked to were very happy to give us directions or suggest restaurants. The right attitude will get you some wonderful experiences.
Summer Vacation Travel is fun in the Northern summer... but don't neglect the Southern Hemisphere at this time of year. Yes, it's winter in South Africa, but that's their dry season. It's a good time to travel there.
Sometimes you need to watch rain patterns instead of just seasons to figure the best time to travel...
Whether you're taking a road trip close to home or traveling abroad...
Whether it's summer or winter in your part of the world... the way you pack can make it all more pleasurable.
We feel we are ambassadors when we travel, perhaps we can be ambassadors in cyberspace too and show you the joys of travel. We hope EVERYONE finds inspiration here. We believe that travel promotes understanding and understanding promotes peace.
