I love Paul Marshman and his blog called The Travelling Boomer. Since I am a travelling boomer, his writing always hits home for me, and his pieces are well thought out and informative without any of the annoying stuff, like click next ten times to see the whole story.
This piece really resonated with me. I recently took a solo trip to Panama and Peru. When I travel solo, I do it on the cheap because I’m not picky about where I stay, as long as it’s safe, has a roof, and a bed. But I’m at the point in my life where, even though I’m staying in a cheap hostel, I need a private room with a private bathroom. The love of travel is there, but age dictates some concessions. And that’s the point of this article.
