    The Travel Addict in Asia for a month - Philippines, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Singapore, Bhutan, and Thailand.

    The Travel Addict in Asia for a month - Philippines, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Singapore, Bhutan, and Thailand.

    I had a speaking gig on a cruise ship around Asia for 2 weeks, so I thought I would extend it for a week before and after. Presenting to people from the Americas, Europe, Asia, Australasia, and Africa was fullfilling and it was just great to be in an environment where humans from many parts of the world all got along with each other wonderfully well. 
    Apart from presenting some history, geography, and cultural facts about countries in Asia, I decided to take on an extreme challenge and climb to Tigers Nest Monastery for the 2nd time, however I was now 9 years older.
    The great news is that I made it without passing out or falling off the mountain along the way, 
    It's a very tough and strenuous trek up steep slopes in a rocky terrain.
    The reward for reaching this iconic building is a feeling of substantial achievement and enlightenment, at one of the most sacred places on planet earth.
    I visited the following:
    Makati, Philippines,Hong Kong, ChinaBhutan in the Himalayan MountainsChiang Rai, ThailandOld Phuket Town, ThailandFantastic experience. 
    Go to Asia folks.

    What to do when you retire in your 60's - do volunteer work in Bangladesh, backpack around Latin America, sleep in a hammock in the jungle - Just normal stuff

    What to do when you retire in your 60's - do volunteer work in Bangladesh, backpack around Latin America, sleep in a hammock in the jungle - Just normal stuff

    Alastair Henry did something not many people would think about doing when retiring in his 60s.
    He did volunteer work in Bangladesh, Guyana, and Jamaica. He also did his share of backpacking around the world, an activity normally associated with the younger generation.
    This is a prime example of "You are never too old for adventure", which is also a title of one of my presentation topics.
    He did surprise me when he stated that more people than we think do these commendable activities, even when they are in the latter part of their lives.
    Take note everyone. Life is short.
    Check out his web site and books:

    The Galavanting Goddess talks about her crazy outlandish life of travel and adventure

    The Galavanting Goddess talks about her crazy outlandish life of travel and adventure

    This podacst is based on Lisa Ruoff's own personal experiences, as a single solo female traveler, within her highly unconventional life. Alaska to Cuba and Back is the story and is about leaving her little, off grid cabin in Alaska to make her way onto a sailboat off the east coast of the states, to sail around Cuba with a South African captain and the girl he met at a bar the night before. She wrote a book about this.
    Her second book, Bite of the Travel Bug , recently released,  is about backpacking and hitchhiking adventures in both Australia and Africa. 
    Hear about her experience with a Tasmanian Devil in, guess where, Tasmania.
    All fun stuff, and she is still alive to talk about it.
