To Oldly Go: Tales of Adventurous Travel by the Over-60s

Calling on bold silver travellers! Have you travelled independently, adventurously and even a little irresponsibly in later life? Have you had the time of your life despite the disapproval of your family? Have you chosen to defy expectations – and the odds – by going outside your comfort zone and taking a less-travelled path? Or do you have a colourful story of travel undertaken by a family member or close friend who is over 60?

We have teamed up with Bradt Travel Guides to find entertaining true tales of adventurous and unusual travel by the over-60s for inclusion in a new book – provisionally titled To Oldly Go and due for publication in autumn 2015. If you have a story that’s inspiring, amusing, thrilling or even downright frightening (albeit with a happy ending) – a story that champions the older traveller – this is your chance to see it immortalised in print.
