Every day we receive calls from potential Fun Over Fifty travellers who are keen to come onboard but who suffer from motion sickness.

Throughout the ages, man has travelled for many a different reason. In primitive times we travelled predominantly out of necessity in search of food or for survival. Over the centuries we've travelled for religious purposes, for migration, immigration, commerce, education and then we arrived in the modern era where most of us travel purely for pleasure. Now some of us like to rough it, but for others, travel means taking luxury to the next level. Let's have a look at how luxury travel has change through the ages:-
For some it seems that adventure stops when life gets serious, when there are bills to pay, children to feed and responsibilities to take on. For others their sense of adventure is ever-present, a stable throughout life that drives them to challenge, explore and take risks. For yet another sector, adventurous opportunities might not present themselves until later in life. The seniors of today are embracing adventure, adrenaline and exhilaration at a stage in life when they may have previously been expected to be 'slowing down'.
Each and every one of us here in the Fun Over Fifty office is passionate about travel. However after a quick survey around the office though we discovered that although we are connected in this common passion, our individual reasons for loving to travel vary greatly. This got us thinking, why is it that we love to travel? Why do we leave the creature comforts of home to venture out into the world?
If you follow our Facebook page you'll have noted that lately we've been spending a lot of time seeing Australia from above. The sheer vastness of our amazing country dictates that sometimes it really is necessary to take to the skies and see it's magnificence from on high. From Queensland's Great Barrier Reef to the Nullarbor Cliffs of South Australia, there are many great Australian sights that warrant a scenic flight.
