I’m a senior. I’m also an internationally published travel writer, blogger, journalist, photographer, skier, and scuba diver.
In most cases, this blog will not use flowery adjectives describing the world’s most awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, fantastical places visited by Baby Boomers.
And Senior Moments In Travel blog won’t be about elderly people looking for their hotel room keys already in their hands or trying to find their glasses sitting on their foreheads.
But it WILL focus on funny, silly, and outrageous things that seniors say and do while on the road. A few examples:
- On my first cruise, I saw a couple drenched in sweat in the fitness room. The wife wanting to stop cycling, but from the rowing machine, the husband yelled, “No… ten more minutes. We have to make room for lunch.”
- A friend who frequented “The Happiest Place on Earth” in Anaheim, California, well into his 70s told his wife, “You know, Disneyland would be a great place if it wasn’t for all these kids!”
- And when my Mom was 85 and traveling through Scotland with my brother, she told a young, handsome bartender who was flirting with her, “I can’t understand a word you’re saying! Why can’t people in foreign countries speak English!”
By the way, if I occasionally wax poetic about something that’s amazing, tough noogies. It’s my blog and these are my rules.
But this is your blog, too. So if you have a humorous story to share about Senior Moments in Travel, please use the form below and I’ll contact you for details.
