I gave up my apartment over a year ago to take a Senior Gap Year. Still living out of a suitcase 18 months later; encountered plenty of women my age rebooting their lives with wanderlust, plus Baby Boomers house-sitting around the world. Not sure you should write off older people having the ability to travel as The Explorers Club boasts octogenarians climbing, biking, diving, and leading expeditions. Sure, Do it while you can. It would be a better world if more Americans traveled. But Boomers are out there.
