SENIORS VISIT TINY LUXEMBOURG

Oct 5th, 2012 | By | Category: Senior Travel

Senior Citizen Attracted to History I would imagine that the majority of Americans could not easily find Luxembourg on a map. It is a small country with a lot of history associated with its past.

Oct 4th, 2012 | By | Category: Senior Travel

Sep 19th, 2012 | By | Category: Senior Travel

Seniors Circle Around Russia I just read recently in one of my travel magazines about what is called the Golden Ring in Russia.  Amid plains, lakes and marshes of vast country, extending from Moscow towards the northeast,  are scattered these old Russian towns known collectively as the Golden Ring of Russia.  Visiting the Golden Ring […]



SENIORS GO BIRDING IN SIERRA VISTA

Sep 17th, 2012 | By | Category: Senior Travel

Seniors Flock to Southeast Arizona Arizona is a senior birder’s bonanza. In the southeastern corner of the state, many species found primarily south of the border reach the northern limits of their ranges.
