About this book
A brand new collection of remarkable travel tales from ‘Silver Travellers’. Dervla Murphy travelling in Cuba at the age of 74, Matthew Parris swimming the Thames at 60, and Colin Thubron climbing the last stronghold of the Assassins in his 60s are among the writers recounting their adventures, often defying expectations – and the odds – and going outside their comfort zone to take a less-travelled path in later life. Published with participation from the Silver Travel Advisor, this single volume brings together contributions – some original, some previously published – from independent-minded souls whose experiences have been entertaining, amusing, thrilling, and even a little irresponsible. Other contributors include Roger Bray, ‘Green Goddess’ Diana Moran and our very own Hilary Bradt.
“Tales of often-misguided meanderings reveal that the planet’s muddier waters aren’t just for journos. and that age doesn’t necessarily confer wisdom.”
‘Entertaining and inspiring.’ Adventure Travel Magazine
