With its majestic Himalayan Mountains and fascinating local culture, Nepal is a favorite destination for adventurous travelers. My baby health nurse advised me that it may be difficult to obtain disposable nappies in Vietnam, due to the general population being relatively poor. She said they would most likely use cloth nappies. I was grateful for this advice since I found this was the case. Still, I ran out of nappies during the last few days of our trip, and they were very difficult to obtain. I was also down to my last few tins of baby food and onto my last tin of baby formula. I feared I might run out of it on the plane trip home. After speaking to a local women in Hoi An about this she told me about a market store about a 20 minute taxi ride from our resort. I found a Vietnamese version of Pampers there, they were a very large size, too big for our daughter but they would be okay to use for just a few days. They did not sell baby food there, apart from rice cereal.

But it was time to hit the road again. Because of the large engine in our little truck, we were much faster than the locally made cars, and most trucks on the road. So we made the most of it going up hills and overtaking everything in front of us. Even a couple of motor bikes tried to keep up with us. No hope. When we got to the out skirts of Agra, we pulled up to study the maps and look for the best way to the Famous Taj Mahal. The two bikies we overtook earlier came up to us and asked what sort of we had. They had never seen anything go so fast before. After talking for a while, they said they would be our tour guides for the day. So we followed them into Agra and saw the various touristy things that needed to be seen. The following day we headed to New Delhi and stayed in the posh area of The Golf Links. It is located in Central Delhi, and is close to India Gate, Supreme Court, Racecourse Road, Delhi High Court and other important government offices. Living here, one can easily forget the poverty and slums.

Chatkath~ So happy to see you today! Thanks for such high praise for this little Jerusalem travel guide; you always make me smile. I will keep you in my thoughts in the hope that you can someday manage that vacation to “The City of Peace.” I am certain you will find it an amazing adventure spiritually, physically, as well as visually. Wellness seekers will appreciate the treatments at the spa at Oberoi Rajvilas, which includes chakra balancing and massages using hot Himalayan stones. There are also yoga, meditation, and singing-bowl travel insurance sessions at this atmospheric hotel in the equally atmospheric Pink City. Our next day’s visit was very interesting again, we travelled to Gudauri a beautiful snow-capped hill station, where you can witness nature at its very best. Gudauri is located 120km from Tbilisi and it usually takes about 2 hours to reach from the capital. It is a destination spot for skiing, speed riding and paragliding or even if you just need to take pictures and enjoy the scenic beauty! The snow is so bright that we need sunglasses.

Every member of my family was busy looking around. I was busy with filming and taking photos with or without family. Angus was busy too, but I´m sure he enjoyed the adventure. I saw it in his face how delighted he was. Traveling after retirement may be dictated by price, off season, the day you travel. Flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturday afternoons usually offer the best rates. Most motels and hotels are less expensive Sunday through Thursday with the exceptions of large cities. As a senior traveling it may do you well to be spontaneous. If you have the personality to wait until the last minute to book your retiree travel, airlines and hotels cut prices to fill their needs. Some of the well known and best destinations of the world are South America, Egypt, Bulgaria, Mexico, Poland, Laos and India. These are some places which are not just famous for their amazing landmarks and excellent infrastructure but are also blessed with natural beauty that can win any heart. Tourists from all over the world visit these destinations in the hope of returning with great memories.
