How has traveling changed as you aged + Mom escaping to Paris sans kids

Jump to last reply

How has traveling changed or evolved in your 20s to your age now? I'm 42 and my style has changed a lot. I'm much slower than in my 20s and 30s especially when my kids are with me. I plan to travel until I physically can't anymore and want to get some insight how you plan trips alone and with your children. Which places do you prioritize and do they have anything to do with getting older or physically more able?

I'm leaving in October and booked a hotel located in the 5th arrondissement in Paris. I plan to take pictures of me in iconic places to show my grandpa as it was one of the places he wished he'd gone before he couldn't physically travel anymore. I'm not a good photographer and was hoping the backdrop will do enough talking and I am mortified that I might actually have to use a selfie stick. Any suggestions on must try French food? Did you get the Paris Museum Pass the first time there? I appreciate any suggestions you might have for me. Thank you in advance!
