There have been several stories about people in their sixties and beyond taking up travel that keeps them mentally and physicall engaged without affecting their finances and health and also engaging with society.


And these are not necessarily for the rich and the elite, or just extreme cases.

Such great case studies, Ramanand! I love your point about the physical AND mental benefits of traveling.

Thanks Annie. A lot of elders in my family/community do take up travel post-retirement, and it seems to make them very happy. There are tourism agencies that have specialised packages that are reasonably priced, and are conscious of their health, physical, and food needs.
