Time To Order!

Quite possibly the oldest solo, around-the-world backpacker, Linda J. Brown spent a year exploring the globe in 2005; turning 68 midway through the journey. She calls out specifically to Leading Edge Baby Boomers, challenging them to reclaim their free-form traveling days of the 1960’s – this time on Social Security.
What’s it like to be pushing seventy and carrying an 85-litre backpack, sleeping in hostels, riding local buses and trains, getting yourself around whole continents for a year – alone? In her new book, Hey Boomers, Dust Off Your Backpacks, seasoned world traveler, Linda J. Brown describes adventures in Eastern Europe, Turkey, Egypt, India and Thailand; telling of the people she meets, the lessons she learned and the beauty she found. Thriving on a limited budget and making her plans as she went, Brown busts the myth that the world is a dangerous place.
She is already making plans to circle the Southern Hemisphere, East to West, in 2009, when she will be 71. Stay tuned for the next book in this series.
