Rosemary Van Vranken, Ph.D invites readers to experience the world in their own pace, time, style and comfort in her new book, “Can You Backpack Internationally in Your 60's? Of Course You Can!!” (published by AuthorHouse). This travelogue displays the many wonderful sights and sounds the author has witnessed throughout her years and miles in backpacking.
This book contains 171 pictures mostly taken by the author. Among this collection is the photo of the piano on which Mozart played and wrote his music and a night picture in Africa of a male lion that had killed a zebra.
“Backpacking later in life is an adventure that takes you to many ‘non-touristy’ places. However, you should do a little research on your own before going by obtaining a book or two in a ‘travel’ section of a store,” says Van Vranken. “I believe that today, many individuals 60 or more are in good shape and would like to be more adventurous.”
“Can You Backpack Internationally in Your 60's? Of Course You Can!!” aims to ignite a reader’s desire to backpack internationally regardless of any age, and with an appreciation for what life offers now, when travelers see how other cultures do not have those things.
