You have seen a lot of the world, but where should you go next? Escape has some suggestions for travelers over the age of 50—heading into your golden years has never been so fun.

“While you’ve ticked off more than your fair share of countries, looking at a map of the world still fills you with the realization that there’s so much left to see and that the opportunities for adventure are boundless — even in your 50s,” says Paul Ewart.

One suggestion is to visit an old stomping ground.

“Whether it’s a visit to a capital city or the classic European backing experience—this time flash packing, of course—retracing the steps of your young self will not only be a nostalgic trip down memory lane, but also an opportunity to see these destination(s) in a completely new light,” suggests Ewart.

If you’ve not been to the seventh continent, maybe now is the time.

“An otherworldly land of giant icebergs and wild seas, Antarctica is the most isolated place on earth and a cruise is the perfect way to experience this final frontier,” says Ewart.

You could even try a new hobby.

“Whether you’re an ancient Egyptian buff, or a pre-Columbian aficionado, there’s various organisations out there looking for budding archaeologists to help out on digs,” says Ewart. http://www.travelpulse.com/
