Our Planet’s Plastic Problem, can an old dog learn new tricks? I think we can!

Do you think there is ever an age when you’re too old to travel? I absolutely do not believe traveling has an age expiration limit!
Have you ever heard, “you’re too old to travel or do that”? As an empty nester, solo traveler I’ve heard variations of it. As a woman, I’ve heard the usual “it is not safe for women to travel alone.” As a person with some health issues, I’ve heard “what if you hurt yourself?” Isn’t life a series of “what ifs” for everyone?
