Because as someone rightly said… In the end, We only Regret the Chances we didn’t take. Travel brings Power and Love back to Life. We Travel not to Escape Life but for Life not to Escape us. Live, Travel, Adventure, Bless and don’t be Sorry. Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. To Travel is to Live. If you think Adventure is Dangerous, Try Routine, It’s Lethal. Once a year go some place you’ve never been before.
The above are all collection of my favorite quotes on travel by various great thinkers and authors and they describe beautifully in single lines whole world of reasons to Travel. But in the end it will be just us thinking back on what we Read or Saw….because the difference between the two will be in being there. It’s Now or When…. Later is Never. This is the best time, we are free from responsibilities to explore the new virgin lands. Which hold the host of unparalleled new experiences. But be prepared to go with open heart and generous mind as if you reject the Food, ignore the Customs, fear the Religion and avoid the People, you might better stay home… As says James Michener.
Now let’s Plan your Vacationn… 🙂 When preparing to travel lay out all your clothes and all your money…Now take half the clothes and twice the money.
1. Always preferable to travel in groups rather than travel alone. So check with your travel agent for any special packages for senior citizens.
2. Ask for any special medical requirements during travel or applicable in the country at the time of booking only.
3. Get travel insurance which covers existing medical condition.
