Plans MOT so long before the start of Alan aerial odyssey which in two and a half months will set me down in 32 different lands I heard from three friends with some helpful advice One is asso ciated with an airline which dis patches planes to the far places the second is a promoter of travel tours the third is a medical doc tor with a mountainclimbing hobby The fact that each communica tion bore some interest to me led me to conclude that the same thing might be true with respect to others who have travel in mind So Im going to dip into each for some selected excerpts The third one I should tell you wont require much time it con sists of two cryptic sentences From the airline travel author ity came some tips for those who can no longer be described as young Older people it should be noted constitute a very consid erable percentage of the group indulging in world travel As my friend put it They meaning our senfor citizens have earned the lei sure and wherewithal to enjoy trips they could not afford when they were Be Your Own Boss First of the suggestions offered by him was Go where YOU want to go not where your children or friends think you should Its YOUR Planned tours he added are excellent but dont book every minute Leave days for relaxing or browsing about side streets or following up on sights you saw from a bus Dont take on too much Leave the mountainclimbing and surfboard riding to the young er my friend coun seled Dont go where you have to rough Those of middle age or older want a good bed well prepared meals and the other creature comforts Keep to the beaten Here in candor I should admit that I havent meticulously lived up to these last related bits of advice Im to be on what I must admit is a rugged bourne one day Sydney the next then on to Bali Java Sumatra Malaya Vietnam Thai Burma India and Pakistan with no time out for slowbreathing Medical Checkup But I did give heed to the next bit of counsel Have a medical checkup before you start out Its a sensible pre caution You dont want to spend precious travel time sitting in a dentists or doctors office Read up on the places on your itinerary before you leave home my friend suggested Youll en joy them much more he ob icrved Look up people who share your hobbies along the way If youre stamp collector or an ornitho logist see if theres an organiza tion in the area youre visiting Youll be welcomed and youll make new friends Look up people in your profes sion or other lifework A fellow architect doctor or lawyer or editor will help you see the area in a way that will have spe cial interest to you Dont my airline friend ad monished me move in on rela tives or overplay that letter of Introduction Keep it casual Be independent Diet Is Important Watch your diet if you must but dont spoil your fun by refus ing local food specialties You CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 Scattered Showers Possible in Iowa ON ELECTION DAY Soaking rains totaling more than three inches fell gently over western
