This week we speak to Kay about her first book called It Ain't Heavy, It's My Luggage: Tips for Older Women Traveling Abroad. Kay has travelled extensively over the last 40 years and changed her packing habits over the time. She now wants to encourage women in their 60s, 70s and over to continue to travel and one way to do this is to pack light so you can enjoy the trip.
Kay says we should embrace travel over 60s with humour. For instance, here are some of the chapter headings in her book:
You Say Potato, I Say Tomato — Choosing the right traveling companion
The Cane Mutiny — Adjusting to your physical limitations
Over the Lips and Under the Gums, Look Out Stomach Here It Comes — How to keep potential tummy problems at bay
Don't Be a "Gaffey” Duck — How to avoid making gaffes in another culture
OK, It's a Cliché, But Stop and Smell the Blooming Roses — Appreciating the simple things
