NEW! Trips and Tips for Women Traveling Solo in Retirement
3 sessions, 6 hours
There’s a big world out there—but if you don’t have a travel companion, what do you do? This class will teach you the benefits (and concerns) about traveling solo in a post 9/11 world. This course will cover how to plan a great trip, pay for it, and then share it with others. Along the way we will talk about concerns such as safety, eating alone, and how to meet local people on your travels. You will even get some tips on great itineraries for older women. Don’t miss out on the great experience of traveling just because you have no one to travel with!
Instructor: Marcy Gouge, a retired trial lawyer, is the daughter of a “traveling man” who inspired her love of travel. She has traveled extensively around the U.S. and the world by herself for the past fifteen years, and has learned how to plan and enjoy trips even when traveling solo in some of the most romantic cities in the world. She blogs regularly about traveling as a solo older woman and contributes articles to online and print magazines about the joys of solo travel for women. She is currently writing about a recent trip to Italy where she took a pasta-making class, as well as a special “behind the scenes” tour of the history of Medici perfume in Florence.
