Thumbs up to adventuring!
Celebrating an appetite for adventure at whatever age you are, Hilary Bradt’s latest book ‘To Oldly Go’ is a collection of 41 short stories about unusual and thrilling travel escapades of the over 60s. Bradt who is still hitch-hiking in her 70s remarks that "'To Oldly Go', is a celebration of the silver traveller, and within its pages are tales that will turn your hair grey too.”
In this thought-provoking and heart-warming book, Hilary's tale talks about her love of hitch-hiking and taking the road less travelled: “...“As I continued to seek the occasional lift in my forties and fifties, the drivers must have got a nasty shock when they stopped and realised that this hitch-hiker was getting on in years. But it was only when I started travelling with Janice, who is two years older than me and has white hair, that I discovered the advantage of flaunting, rather than concealing, your age.”
Whether it’s throwing caution to the wind and hitch-hiking, or embracing your natural grey and white hair, Hilary gives it a big ‘thumbs up’. Her enthusiastic approach to life is truly inspiring – and contagious. Regardless of our age, she dares us to be different and reminds us that we’re never too old to embrace life and its adventures.
