Big Sur, California: See It All Before It Crashes Into The Pacific PDF Print E-mail

Sightseeing along the ocean coast on Highway 101 about 150 miles south of San Francisco has been one of senior wanderers most enjoyable journeys for decades. Unfortunately, rain and landslides are slowly eroding the seascape, with the eventual collapse. So, while Big Sur still rises to the skyline, plan a drive or bus ride with your camera through the beautiful land- and seascape before it all disappears.

Pane & Vino In Miami Beach Is Best U.S. Eatery PDF Print E-mail


If your winter plans include visiting the Florida city, be sure to stop in for, as the name translates, some bread and wine. And, of course, you’ll have many more happy choices of delicious Italian specialties. According to TripAdvisor’s reader survey, this restaurant tops the list. So, when you go there, it’ll be buon appetito with your carpaccio and pasta alla ruota.

Five Fantastically Free Things To Do In London UK PDF Print E-mail

As with most big cities around the world, the English capital can be a very expensive place to visit. Hotels, restaurants, stores and clubs pound your pocket very sharply to take your pounds sterling. However, there are also interesting activities senior visitors can do that cost absolutely nothing except the time to enjoy them.

Consider just a few of the more famous ones. Wander through lovely Hyde Park to enjoy the scenery or the latest soapbox orator. Visit the historic Bank of England Museum, and see the story of the pound sterling. Tromp across Abbey Road in the footprints of the Beatles. Feed the pigeons on Trafalgar Square as Lord Nelson’s statue presides. And for the latest in history, art and decor, spend an afternoon at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Las Vegas NV: Lo Mejor De Los Burritos Mexicanos PDF Print E-mail

Take some time from grooving and gambling away your family fortune to enjoy a South of the Border feast at Pink Taco in the Hard Rock Hotel. Order the Ultimate Burrito, deliciously stuffed with over three pounds of pulled chicken, pork, beef, refried beans, rice, queso, guacamole, crema, pico de gallo and lettuce. Cost: $24, but unless you’re a cerdo, it’ll feed at least three family members, your dog and cat.

Opinion: Enjoyable Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) PDF Print E-mail

Your travel4seniors.com editor recently spent some time in one of the most enjoyable airports in the world. For savvy senior wanderers, the words enjoyable and airport rarely go together.

Most terminal experiences are filled with frustration, delays, incompetence, bad food, scowling security, unruly mobs, dirty waiting areas and other annoyances. Happily, I found Hong Kong to be totally different. My fave European airport is Amsterdam’s Schipol, but as good as it is compared to US terminals, Hong Kong is one step closer to perfect.

Wandering among  the upscale shops, bright outdoor plazas, welcoming eateries and comfortable resting areas is pleasant. Security check-in is efficiently quick, as well as picking up bags after flights. Management brains at US airports should take some lessons from HKG.
