Seniors Adventure Travel Tours

As a senior citizen one should enjoy the adventure of life at last. Perhaps see polar bears frolic across Arctic snow or tour Africa to see lions and elephants in natural habitats. (ADT) has created resources for elders that includes holiday packages and links to special deals and discounts as well as articles and travel videos for the 60 plus traveller.

“We provide information, tips, tours and holiday suggestions for the older traveler and all who have similar interests. We believe in ageless travel, said Ian Clayton of (ATD).

Of course seniors adventure travel tours and vacations do not have to be in far-away exotic locations. A wine tour of a neighboring state or a gourmet restaurant tour in a neighboring city is always a possibility. Many older travellers often do not care to travel great distances and enjoy more refined and comfortable holidays. Today vacationers of all ages are looking for meaningful holidays.

The tours and vacation ideas on the ATD website not only match traveler’s level of activity and comfort, they also offer meaningful encounters and cultural experiences for travellers of all ages. For comfort one can chose extremely Spartan lodging to accommodations fit for royalty, there is a travel package for every age and everyone. One can truly rough it or stay in a luxury hotel. No matter if its a hideaway in the Caribbean, a Safari, a vacation with the family or a senior solo trip, there is an option for everyone today, continued Clayton.

Single seniors are welcome to participate in today’s adventure tours. Traveling alone can be a bit daunting to an older person who may have recently lost their lifelong partner, say Clayton. Fear of traveling alone for the first time is normal, it is just natural excitement and anticipation, and that soon passes once the tour begins.

Travel is a chance to learn, grow and experience lifestyles, customs and places that are different and unique, and as Clayton says: Trips to ancient cultures are particularly rewarding, many of the original peoples truly respect and appreciate elders, and are delighted to welcome them.”

The website also offers a free newsletter and magazine that includes package deals, discounts, reviews of potential destinations, special adventure tours for seniors and more.


ATD is a website of AXSES. In 2011, AXSES was featured by the New York Times in an article on Social Media use in Travel. AXSES works with professionals in the hotel, tourism and travel industries, to help build their businesses through all forms of marketing which includes building website and information systems like ADT. ADT offers advice and information as well as links and packages for all travelers of all ages who want to add adventure to life.

Menus and Memoirs of a Yacht Chef

For those looking to see the world and be home in time for dinner, chef Marianne J. Gardners new cookbook isn’t just a kitchen resource. Its a passport.

In Menus and Memoirs of a Yacht Chef, Gardner partners travel-inspired gourmet meals with an insiders look into exotic cruising locations. Firsthand stories from aboard luxury yachts are complemented by hundreds of recipes from Gardners years of professional cooking. The broad selection of courses are paired with wine by a professional connoisseur from Total Wine and More, and offer options of various price ranges.

I have chosen 10 travel destinations worldwide featuring a different yacht in each location, with each menu reflecting the food and wine from the area, says Gardner, who worked as a chef aboard motor yachts for more than a decade.

Gardners recipes are written for the avid home cook, using measurements, ingredients and equipment found in most modern kitchens. The book, ideal for coffee tables and kitchen shelves alike, also features vivid photos of the yachts, locations and the food.

People have often found my experiences fascinating, and often say they wish they were brave enough to do something similar, says Gardner. This is one of the reasons Ive added the memoirs part to the cookbook to allow them the adventure of worldwide travel through my stories.

Bringing readers right along with her, Gardners recipes give flavor to the Mexican Riviera, Saint Martin, New Zealand and the San Juan Islands. Her award-winning key lime pie lends a taste of the Bahamas, and the cooking hints throughout the book encourage adventure in the kitchen and beyond.

You dont have to leave your home to enjoy a travel-inspired meal, says Gardner. I started out as a small town prairie girl with basic cooking skills and no worldly experience. But by keeping my options open and taking a few risks, I was able to accomplish whatever I set my mind to. Anyone can.
