SOLO SENIOR TRAVEL TIPS

ROBBIN MILLER,TRAVELLING STYLE QUEEN

When I travel,I dress smartly,almost business-like,and stride through an airport like I do it all the time.
I check my luggage and only have a stylish shoulder bag,leaving my hands free.

The secret to my confident travel style is that I plan ahead,checking destination details on-line,mostly,
to fix a picture in my mind of every step of the way.No anxiety,no dithering,no surprises.

Ok,if a flight is delayed,I find a quiet corner of the departure lounge and read or check social media.
I don't engage in whiney conversations with my fellow travellers.

I prefer a window seat on a plane,so I have a degree of privacy during a flight.On short flights,I drink
water only.No snacks and no coffee because if there is any turbulence,I don't want to wear a coffee
stain to greet my friends or family.

THE GOOD GUEST

I take PRESENTS,lots of presents.

Staying with friends or family can be fraught with danger.I am up early to beat the bathroom jam-up.
I carry my own mirror for my make-up and I have easy hair.

If no-one else is up,I will leave a note and walk around the block,giving later risers time to sort them-
selves out.

An unfamiliar kitchen is no place for me to cook.I will tidy up,though.At an appropriate time,I am
happy to pay for dinner without looking at the bill.

CLOTHES FOR FUNTIMES

I pack clothes for most occasions so I don't have to borrow anything or look like a fruit salad.
My travel clothes do not need ironing.

ROBBIN'S RULE

I don't stay long,even though my visit is carefully planned and I may not wear all my outfits.
I am invited back because I am not much trouble to have in the first place.

Brilliant info for stress free successful travel plans! I would only add a snack/nuts for delays to keep my hypos happy 😊
