Good blog but I am more the other end of the story…check out Connie Ottmann’s blog on this site, A Boomer and Tripping my Brains Out. It is possible to do this process in later life. It only takes courage (and staying pretty healthy). She also has found a group, Broads Abroad, started by an Australian woman, that has given her some touch points as she travels. But no matter, the age, travel is mind altering, though I think you need to be ready to ‘let go’ whenever it happens. That’s the first and critical step.
