Going on Vacation. 39 Simple Ways To Make It Better

Going on vacation can go one of two ways.

How old is too old to travel?

You know how when you get to a certain age, and you suddenly start ‘playing on it?’

“Ohh… I couldn’t possibly take the bins out – I’m far too old for that.”

Or

“Don’t ask me to hold the dog down while you cut her toenails – I’m getting on a bit. I can’t kneel for long.”
