Solo travel is a growing trend in the over 50s, so much so that nearly a third (32 percent) set off on a solo adventure in 2015.
Some older travellers go solo because they are single or widowed, others like to visit far-away friends, but most do it for the sheer pleasure of doing whatever they want, whenever they want.
To capture the spirit of solo travel, Staysure has put together a collection of postcards from eight intrepid solo travellers.
From Valerie Singleton’s travels with Princess Anne in Kenya to Roger Bruton’s epic worldwide tour, the postcards are an inspirational collection of tales that embody everything great about solo travel.
