What’s Age Got To Do With It?

Linda J. Brown Backpacking Around the World

Linda Brown, at age 80 is traveling around the world. She recently sent this note:

“I’m in Chiang Mai, Thailand, early in a hop-on, hop-off backpackers hosteling trip thru Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. I am usually solo in this 3rd round-the-world trip I’ve been on for 2.5 years of a 4 yr total. I turned 80 in Africa last Sept. I hope to blog more frequently on my heyboomers.com website, but hostel life gets in the way.”

And what was she doing? Ziplining! She included photos of her zipping through the trees:

And then there is 80-year-old Peace Corps Volunteer Barbara E. Joe who reports she will be heading out on an another junket to assist surgical teams who take care of children with physical deformities. I so admire Barbara because she dares to go where few people would be willing to set foot. By the way, she has written books documenting her experiences. They are available on Amazon
