• Add some volunteering into a vacation abroad

    2011-12-05

    Baby boomers who are considering an adventure travel trip in their future may want to give back to the communities they visit while on their getaway. According to Baby Boomer Magazine, some travelers are choosing to spend parts of their vacations helping others in the surrounding community. These visitors are putting their skills to the test and using skills learned in their careers back home to lend a hand in areas that need some help.

    Dubbed “voluntourism”, this type of traveling can be a rewarding experience. If baby boomers decide to add some volunteering time into their traveling abroad plans, it can make for some incredible memories and may help guests to a new country gain a further appreciation for the local people and livelihood.

    According to Truetravellers.org, there are some wonderfully exotic locations to explore that have unforgettable attractions, but also could use some help at their non-profit organizations. For example, India is a great place to visit the Taj Mahal, and perhaps also spend some time at a local women’s shelter or a cultural center that needs assistance.
