A place for geezers, grey hairs, and oldies to discuss independent travel. Reminisce about travel in the days before Lonely Planet and discuss issues applicable to the mature traveller.

Yes I'll go with that too (chronologically gifted), and I will also be 50 in a few months. And divorced. Your stories are putting heart into me, as I was wondering if I'd still be able to travel. My favorite story was about my great grandmother--she hardly ever got to go anywhere and she was getting quite decrepit in her mid 80's, but someone took her to New Orleans and she took off at a trot and outran them all. I loved it. Grandma loved to travel--she lived 6 months in Idaho and 6 months in Missouri and the traveling was the best part for her. My mom has been all over, and my family and I went on a RTW trip last year. My girls will definitely be continuing the tradition. Whistler, I loved your story about the brothel--you're more interesting when you're outrageous. So kudos to the outrageous oldsters (except you're not really old!) and the fabulous 50's! Hey, where can I get that furniture thingie--I'll need it now that I have to support myself. :D
