Heard this story this morning on NPR about Global Grannies, a group ladies from Billings MT who have taken to traveling in their golden years after loosing their husbands. Basically, they are badass. I feel such a kinship with these ladies, even though I am not old. They have a traveling motto that “we leave out complains, aches, and pains at home”. Which I totally relate to traveling with cystic fibrosis. You can’t let your body stop you.
My favorite piece of wisdom from these ladies was:
"If you want things to be the same as they are at home, then stay at home. Because were there to travel, to experience, and to enjoy".
I always crack up at the people on House Hunters International that complain about bathroom size abroad. They are the epitome of this ladies words—-why are you looking for a change, if you are not willing to take all the trappings that come along with it. Traveling is about experiencing anything foreign to you—even if that is a small bathroom.
