In two weeks time, I will fly out to Lima at the start of another solo post-retirement trip. I will travel around Argentina, Chile and Peru, visiting places that, for me, have always held a fascination.
The planning has not been without its problems as flights have been modified or cancelled and one planned excursion has been ruled out as I am deemed to be too old. A mini trek on the advancing Perito Moreno glacier is limited to those under the age of 65, an age limit which is apparently strictly enforced. This is a problem with advancing years and a reason to do as much as possible before one reaches the arbitrary three score years and ten, when hiring a car and getting travel insurance becomes either more difficult or more expensive.
In the links above I mapped my itinerary, resurrected blogs from previous trips, and listed some travel tips which may be helpful to other solo oldies.
This is the first post for my new trip and I hope to be able to share my experiences with you along the way.
