Greek Islands for a 55 yr old

Walk or cycle the historic trails, picnic under an olive tree, explore the Greek Islands by yacht or just watch the world go by from a Tapas bar in Barcelona.

Greek Islands for a 55 yr old

Postby takemetothesun » Sun Aug 24, 2014 2:11 am

OK I would love to visit different Greek Islands on a trip such as G Adv sailing trips, but husband would not be up for this.
Just wondered if a 55 year old female on her own was just too old to join one of these trips
Your honest thoughts appreciated.

I honestly think the answer is 'no'. I've travelled with many people 60+ on my trips.

go for it. I treated myself to a non Gadventure sail of Greece for my big 5-0. One of the 2 best trips ever. The area is lovely, the people are wonderful and the weather is perfect. it will be the bluest water you have ever sailed. Bottomline do it.

You're as old as you feel and act. I'm not advising you to go get a tattoo and piercings but don't act like a fuddy-duddy and you'll be fine.

If you are young at heart, have a spirit of adventure, and like to be around groups of mixed ages, you are not too old. I've actually only done one g adventures trip -- a Costa Rica trip -- and while, at 55 myself, I was probably the oldest on the trip, we did have a range, and I felt completely comfortable with the group. This sounds like a dream for you, and personally, I think you've gotta go for it.
