I hear too many people say things like they’re “too old” to travel.
You know what, that’s simply not true!
I’ve been lucky to join my kids on trips to both France and Rome in the last year. Would either destination have been my first choice? Maybe not but I loved them!
There’s a lot of reasons to travel, but even a three day vacation can drastically lower your stress levels (even after the vacation ends!). In fact, traveling abroad can make you more open-minded, emotionally stable, and keep you active.
If you want to see the world and do it while being active, let me introduce you to the amazing Backroads Travel.

Founded in 1979 by Tom Hale, Backroads Travel is an active travel company. Offering thousands of scheduled departures each year, they take you on amazing adventures that include biking, multi-adventure, walking and hiking, and even family and private trips.
