I have another guest post today on travel ideas for the older generation. I certainly don't think you're life has to change dramatically as you get older (my parents are actually more adventurous travellers than we are) but if you are looking for a certain type of holiday and you're 50+ then you might find the below of use from Saga Travel.
This beautiful island location has long been popular with couples looking to relax and get away from it all. With walking tours (some might be a little hilly for those with mobility problems), boat trips, horseback riding and bird-watching, Madeira is perfect for enjoying nature.

This tiny and picturesque country on the Adriatic coast has a lovely summer climate and beautiful long beaches dotted with rocky coves. Couples can wile away the hours touring pretty towns and fishing villages before enjoying authentic food and drink. For those with a passion for hiking and walking, the Vrmac massif offers some stunning vistas. Nature lovers will appreciate the Lovcén National Park.
Sunny Malta has a lovely laidback atmosphere and a delightful Mediterranean climate. The beach resort town of Mellieha is a fantastic destination to send your parents to with lots of lovely, relaxing things to do. On a sunny day they could take a ferry trip to Gozo or sunbathe on the area’s beaches. There are cafés, restaurants, a spa and good transport in Mellieha – all the comforts that older travellers might want.
This historic country is fast becoming one of the best loved holiday destinations in Europe. Its two largest cities, Dubrovnik and Split, have many fascinating points of interest, charming restaurants and both have a warm summer climate. Dubrovnik, a UNESCO heritage site, has many beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches which are lovely places to walk around and its medieval walls are very interesting too. For a holiday that will give your parents lots of things to see in an enchanting urban environment send them packing to Croatia!
Before booking your parents a holiday do a bit of homework and try and figure out what they would like best. You may think you know them inside out but there’s always a chance they have a secret passion for bungee jumping that you don’t know about!
