Dublin, Ireland: Sure & Begorrah, We’d Go Tomorrow PDF Print E-mail

Guest Senior Traveler MLO’S, Pittsfield MA:
After retirement a decade ago, my spouse and I traveled the world. Dublin is my favorite international city, offering the best in food, people, art and history. For a start, while flying into Dublin, you’ll be amazed at the deep green of the land and fields of the Emerald Isle.

To get from the airport to the city, we took the Aircoach bus, which offers quick service to the center of Dublin, as well as all the main tourist hotels in the area. Fares are reasonable, at about $20 round trip.

Anticipation begins weeks before departure date. First, the senior driver and passengers, from ages one to 90, should visit family doctors and get complete pre-trip check-ups.

Beverly Hills CA: Huge Monster Invades Nate’n Al’s Deli PDF Print E-mail

No, no, there are no monsters today in the famed eatery that's known for it's monstrous corned beef on rye sandwiches. It happened in the early 1950s when your now-elderly travel4seniors.com editor worked for the Beverly Hills Citizen daily.

I lunched there regularly with other writers, and sometimes the guy in the photo joined us. It shows young James Arness made up for his movie part as a space creature. Later, of course, he became famous as Matt Dillon in Gunsmoke. One noontime, he showed up in monster make-up and scared the hell out of all the deli customers.

At the time, the deli’s famed corned beef on rye cost $1.95. Today the huge sandwich is a bargain for $20. Also, then my weekly check was for $75, and Jim Arness, fresh out of the Army, was a member of the 52-20 Club. Translated: newly-released GIs were paid $20 a week for a year to help them get started in civilian life.

A short list of the many celebs who''ve dined at the deli include Jerry Lewis, Milton Berle, Carol Channing, Groucho Marx, Doris Day, Jay Leno, Tony Curtis and Larry King. Frank Sinatra was there shooting deli scenes for his movie, Pal Joey, in 1957.

If your travels take you to or near Beverly Hills, stop by for a delicious breakfast, lunch or whatever. Nate’n Al’s Deli, 414 N. Beverly Dr. nateenal.com

When addicts are lured to the glittering facilities, they’re welcomed lavishly. Posh surroundings, endless food and booze, glamorous entertainment and other distractions. Casinos love seniors, because statistically they have more time to spend in casinos than any other age group.

First-Time Senior Cruisers: How To Avoid Seasickness PDF Print E-mail

Guest Writer Paul G., Miami FL: When I retired, my wife and I decided to celebrate with a cruise. We flew from Miami to San Francisco, then boarded a big luxury ship bound for Alaska.

We sailed under the Golden Gate Bridge and into very choppy waters. Many first-time passengers were seasick, but we weren’t, because this old salt remembers Navy ways to fight it. Some suggestions may help on your first sailing.

1. See your doctor if you’ve been seasick before or have any problems with holding food down for other reasons. Ask for advice and medication to take with you that will prevent or ease seasickness.
