Elderhostel has developed a new program call Road Scholar developed around the interest of boomers. You don’t get $2000 cash, but a $2000 credit toward travel with them. It’s a raffle deal, you send them your former friend’s email and they start spamming them with offers.
Road Scholar invites you to explore your world through a remarkable new collection of learning and travel opportunities. By combining the flexibility of independent travel with the insider’s perspective only resident experts can offer, Road Scholar takes you behind the scenes to experience firsthand the world’s most fascinating cultures and habitats. We’ll take you where you want to go because, like you, we believe that learning is, quite literally, a trip.
I think it would be fun to take a fling with one of these groups, but I would be concerned about the “know-it-all” types that sometimes show up for things like this. There’s that, and there’s the little thing about the cost of the tours.
This Ansel Adams tour would be spectacular. I’d love to show up with a disposable camera.
