Savvy Advice for the Silver Traveler

Posted by Jennifer Morris I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love the idea of traveling.  Well, almost no one.  A friend recently categorised her trip around the Cape as a ‘a lot of time spent away from Netflix and my own comfy bed’.  So not her.  But everyone else I know would love to travel....

More Mauritius

By Tamryn Iyer Traveling with family and exploring as a foreigner is great. What is even better is the ability to see the country through locals of the land.
