Yes, just bring that coffee and pull up a chair to be taken to a website that can lead to the adventurous learning experience of a lifetime!
http://roadscholar.org which was formerly known as “Elderhostel”, plans for learning experiences from your home state to the other side of the world. These are in depth experiences, often with a focus on special interests, and in some cases are quite frugal. The details are all laid out for you and include information on the activity level and accommodations. People who have experienced these trips are quite enthusiastic and many return for other adventures throughout their senior years. All ages are welcome and you might also want to check out trips designed for mixed generations, such as grandparent and grandchild.

Having first retired from social work in 2008, I've now had time to work through seasons of all play, and seasons of part-time work, while I figured out how best to make use of my "golden" years. The internet provides so much assistance in finding unlimited ideas related to finances, hobbies, travel and staying healthy, but I soon found my passion in quilting. The vast array of techniques have resulted in seeing inspiration everywhere, and practice is always rewarded with improved skills. Of course, grandchildren and family still get priority, but I see this as a pursuit that will remain interesting into my old age.
