Just because you are traveling to another place does not mean you have to forget the routines you have at home. At your age, you could not afford to be careless. Anything could have a negative impact on your health.
Before traveling, you need to make sure that you have researched your destination. Find a hotel which is located near markets to make it easier for you to buy ingredients for cooking a healthy dish.
Another thing you need to do is to check if there are local pharmacies nearby. You might run out of important meds. If it happens, you know you can easily buy in a local drug store. Hospitals and clinics should also be just around the corner if ever you need to see the doctor.
You should also get health and travel insurance. This should be accepted in your destination. Otherwise, you have to search for insurance that is valid even in a different country. You don’t want to blow up your entire travel budget just to see the doctor.
There is nothing wrong in having fun by traveling alone in your senior years. Just make sure you stay disciplined. Otherwise, it could be a huge problem. Your family might not even allow you to travel on your own the next time around.
