Alison Gardiner's guide, "Travel Unlimited, Uncommon Adventures for the Mature Traveler" (Avalon Travel), and

Adventuring just for young kids?

So you think you're not young enough for big adventures? Hogwash. Think again.

In January 2008, 68 year old Evelyn Hannon joined 750 students and a dozen 50plus life long learners on a 108 day voyage around the world with Semester at Sea. You can read all about her fabulous adventures in her daily blog at:

In 1999 Roselyn Hebert learned about a ship scheduled to sail around the world as the new millenium began. Her four-and-a half month odyssey took her to such exotic destinations as Antartica and Easter Island, snorkeling in the Seychelles and exploring Iguazu Falls in South America.Through her book and website (, she has shared these experiences with her four children and friends. Very inspiring. Take a peek!

Don't you think it's time you had an adventure, too?

P.S. If you are a 60 plus woman who has had a wonderful wander somewhere in this great big world, please let us know about it. Maybe together we can convince other gals around the world to hit the road, too. Write:


She prepares for her trip...
