Lonely Planet proposes hiking, climbing, cycling, surfing, canoeing, as a few of the countless ways to explore a country, if you’ve got a taste for adventure. Then it answers the question, ‘But which of these pulse-quickening experiences fall into the ‘don’t-leave-without’ category?’

To my surprise, we’ve done four of the nineteen proposed adventures – not bad for a couple of seniors.
What about you?
Of course, there are different types of travel, for example:
- Independent travellers
- Adventurous independent travellers
- Group travellers
- Cruise lovers
Much depends upon your passion, fitness, interests, available time, budget, independence and risk profile.
Marilyn and I are passionate independent travellers with a controlled taste for adventure. For example, one of our most previleged travel experiences was working with Giant Pandas in Sechuan, China (our blog was translated in Mandarin and Japanese to share with others lovers of Giant Pandas)
For more of our adventures, see our travel blogs:
Discover the Orient & the Pacific
Taking the Slow Road to Cyprus
But many people of our age prefer group travel or cruises – good luck to them but it’s not for us.
