Seniors: Independent Travel Planning

Jun 15th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

Travel Blog Travel Guide – Beginners Guide to Independent Travel states that if you are just having a vague notion to travel and see the world, you won’t get very far. You need to firm up those ideas and form a plan – if you don’t you’ll never leave! Many seniors will say that they always wanted to travel but never had the opportunity. In reality many of these seniors never createdthat opportunity; there is a subtle difference. Looking into the details, getting a firm plan and then telling others what you are going to do are a good way to begin. TravelBlog.org collects inspirational journals, stories and photos from thousands of users and displays them in an easy to read and attractive format. Surf through the locations, click the images, read sample journals, look at the highlights – there is a wealth of travel experience provided there.

Connecting Solo Travel Network  is a site dedicated to those senior travelers who prefer to travel on their own.  CSTN is a not-for-profit, international organization of individuals interested in sharing going-solo tips, news about single-friendly trips, and in promoting hospitality and good will among solo travelers everywhere.  Lots of good information here, with several pages dedicated to frequently asked questions.

Want a good definition of an “independent traveler?”  There is some interesting discussion about definitions on the Internet these days.  Take a look at a couple here:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Independent_Traveler or another at http://www.travelindependent.info/.  The last one has good information to consider if you plan to travel solo.     jeb
