For the last 4 months I have had problems with my left foot. It first started with both feet having serious plantar fasciitis. I went to a podiatrist and he suggested orthotics, special tennis shoes, and physical therapy. The right foot got much better but unfortunately the left one got a tear on the fascia and put me in a boot for over 2 months.
I promise that I will never take walking for granted again. Before, I used to power walk between 8-10 miles a day. Now I have just started again with baby steps.
Why am I telling you all of this? Because I started to think more about seniors traveling. How to travel when you slow down? Who specializes in senior travel? How much has senior travel increased, and how safe is travel for seniors?
We are now in Fort Lauderdale where many cruises depart. I have always seen many seniors taking cruises during this time of the year to the Caribbean, a very popular destination for November through January.
I have gotten some requests to speak to groups of seniors about traveling. Honestly, I don’t think I am an expert in senior travel. I believe cruises are still the safest, and booking groups is the most profitable. If you have experience in senior travel or want to learn more about group travel for seniors, I highly recommend this as a profitable area for travel advisors. Talk to me about places and groups where you can show your expertise and get more business from there.
As always, I am cheering for you!
