Top 5 Things You’re Never Too Old To Do

1- Run through the sprinkler. It really doesn’t get better than this…so throw caution (and your silk shirt) to the wind and partake in this time-honored summertime tradition. Extra points if you can toss a trampoline into the mix.

2- Order a kids meal. Whatever, the portions are better and they come in cute little boxes. Just make sure you don’t trash the toy…pay it forward by giving it to a kid on the street or donating to a local hospital/shelter.

3- Fight with your little brother. How long has he known you? Does he really think he’s going to get away with stealing your slice? Time to bust out the ‘ol Hogan moves.

4- Watch Boy Meets World. This show will never, and I repeat NEVER, get old. Here’s hoping the remake [and Topanga’s hair] can stand up to the legend.

5- Call your grandma when you’re sick. Not sure what it is, but my granny always seems to know the appropriate ratio of concern, humor, advice, and cornbread my illnesses deserve.

Top 5 Reasons To Travel Alone

1- Travel can bring out the the worst, and I mean the worst, in a person–particularly the more high-maintenance types. Do yourself a favor and leave the blowdryer addicts, public transit-phobes, and the A/C divas at home.

2- You don’t have to go see the Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower, or Tower of London for the 89723128th time. For anyone who travels regularly, this can be the worst part of bringing along newbs. Go solo and you have the time to search out a city’s hidden gems!

3- No one has to know that you ate at McDonald’s on your trip abroad.

4- You’re forced to make an effort with the locals…which can (and does!) produce lifelong friends. In addition, these friends are more likely to know of the best spots to visit on your trip!

5- It’s unbelievably liberating. There aren’t words to describe the confidence/pride you feel after navigating your way, completely alone, through multiple countries, airports, train depots, ports, bus stations, and subway systems. I-n-d-e-p-e-n-d-e-n-t, yea you know what that means!
