Since Jun 2012

65+ year old female

Sydney, Australia

I'm 74 and for the past 4 years I have been travelling solo and independently for 6 months of every year, leaving the winter to explore and work my way through this weird and wonderful world, I like to alternate between interesting intimate small budget hotels and B&Bs and occasionally splurge on independent boutique hotels if they are stunning. I think one should encourage and support small operators wherever possible. Likewise with restaurants. I try to avoid all big chain hotels and those used by " tour groups," very difficult these days but still can do. Occasionally I'll use local tour operators to help me explore places with historical interest and to help me cross borders and travel through beautiful, rugged, inspiring scenery. I look for stunning beaches for a r& r and iconic cities briefly to get the feel of a place. India is still my favourite and I'm going back for the 3rd time in 2017. There's just so much more to see. Travel motto.......Carpe Diem
