TRAVELING CAN HELP HEAL THE WIDOWED
~ Marilyn Woerner
Traveling can be a cure for some problems, but it cannot heal the pain from the loss of a spouse. However, with the support of family and friends, a widowed person can find solace in visiting new places. It is easy to stay inside and away from everyone, but that is unhealthy.
A widowed person who had traveled with their spouse may not have had to be concerned about money, luggage, or the travel itinerary. If the spouse did not want to travel, the widowed person may be unsure how to start traveling. Several agencies have Trips available for single people and will help guide a person through the process of the trip. For example:
ROAD SCHOLAR, Adventures in Lifelong Learning
Elderhostel, Inc., the not-for-profit world leader in lifelong learning since 1975, is the creator of Road Scholar education adventures.
