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

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

Author(s): Hilary Bradt

Location(s): World

Genre(s): Travelogue

Era(s): Contemporary

A brand new collection of remarkable travel tales from ‘Silver Travellers’. Dervla Murphy travelling in Cuba at the age of 74, Matthew Parris swimming the Thames at 60, and Colin Thubron climbing the last stronghold of the Assassins in his 60s are among the writers recounting their adventures, often defying expectations – and the odds – and going outside their comfort zone to take a less-travelled path in later life. Published with participation from the Silver Travel Advisor, this single volume brings together contributions – some original, some previously published – from independent-minded souls whose experiences have been entertaining, amusing, thrilling, and even a little irresponsible. Other contributors include Roger Bray, ‘Green Goddess’ Diana Moran and their very own Hilary Bradt.
