We begin our travel adventures with a stimulating expedition cruise around Scotland’s inner and outer islands rich in natural environments, Viking and Neolithic history and, of course, Scotch whisky distilleries! We then consider what adventurous older women are looking for in their travels these days and hear the personal story of an authentic “Wild Woman”.
Next we visit Alberta’s Jasper National Park and the charming townsite with world-class accommodations and eateries nestled in Canada’s Rocky Mountains, and we take a look at Wales which is a “sleeper” in the British Isles for visitors looking for new discoveries. We are also pleased to offer readers a wide range of volunteer vacation ideas around the world all wrapped into one article, and we conclude with safari travel encouragement for people with limited mobility through six countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Enjoy and be challenged!
