Healthy Travel Tips from an older single Mum



Read this inspiring story of an older single Mum traveling the world house sitting with her young son ..... anything in this world is possible


So Mum ‘Where do you want to go for your 53rd birthday, and what do you want to do” asks my 9 year old son?

To some of you, this may be a normal ‘birthday’ question, but for us it usually means a change of country or a “bucket list” item.

You see, we have been traveling the world. In fact we are now in our 40th country, and our 3rd year of continuous travel.

My son was born on St. Patrick’s Day, so his last birthday he chose Ireland – naturally.

I chose an Island off Bocas del Torro in Panama for my 51st Birthday, where we enjoyed paddle boats and kayaking as part of the day, and a long beach walk on the white sand collecting shells – it was just gorgeous.
