At 64 years old, Norm decided to leave his “normal” life behind for a nomadic lifestyle, traveling the world. He travels to different destinations, staying there for about 6 weeks at a time. He started a blog called Travel Younger, where he shares his story and travel tips geared toward baby boomers and generation X. In this blog post, Norm explains how to use technology to make travel easier.
Traveling used to be easy! Back in the day all we needed to do was contact a travel agent and they took care of all the work. Flights, rooms, cars, all handled in one stop, but at a price.
Then the internet changed things. No longer do we need that third party—we can do it ourselves! Online flights, trains, cars, rooms, activities; all there just a few clicks away.
THOSE are the days I relish, since I am a “do it myself” kind of guy, and I have booked many flights while standing in the airport terminal! Ditto trains and activities.
