Were you one of many people decades ago who grabbed a backpack and purchased a Eurail pass? Traveling unencumbered was a last rite of passage before settling down and supporting yourself and a family. Retirement may allow you to come full circle and relive those carefree days again. A myriad of seniors now embrace the nomadic lifestyle.

International travelers carry their suitcases much as they lugged backpacks in their youth. When borders closed over the last couple of years, they adjusted their plans and hunkered down in whatever paradise they found themselves. Those who chose to live an RV lifestyle set up longer stays at parks and campsites. If there is ever a group of people who can adjust to disruption, it is these vagabonds.
