Hot air ballooning, Cappadocia, Turkey

An article I wrote for Intrepid has just been published in The Journal, by Intrepid Travel. Head on over and have a look:

Why the best travels of my life started after fifty.

. . . . . When I was young I saw things in black and white and thought I knew everything. Now that I’m older I realize that there are grey areas in everything and that the more I learn the less I know. It means that I have a greater compassion for all I encounter. I’m softer now, and have nothing to prove.
