Healthy Travel: a pocket guide for seniors 

This helpful book contains expert medical advice and health tips, wisdom and pragmatism; a user-friendly guide for anyone embarking on a new adventure.

– John Gatherer, Author and publisher of Wildlife and Travel Photography

Travel is exciting and can even be life-changing. Whether we travel for cultural and educational experiences, to visit friends and family or to explore places we have longed to see, we gain new perspectives and experiences. As we age, we become less resilient to health risks and more likely to be managing a chronic condition – but this should not prevent us from travelling the world.

Healthy Travel: a pocket guide for seniors is an easy-to-use reference guide tailored to the needs of older travellers. Each chapter features checklists and advice to help you stay healthy at every stage of your trip.
