Senior citizens are in one of the best moments of life to travel since they have both time and money. Moreover, age should never be an obstacle to living new experiences. So if you would like to give it a chance and enjoy a nice trip to your chosen destination, here are some useful tips by Gardens At Spring Shadows to help you keep everything under control.

The easiest way to travel and safe time in pre-trip preparations is to book an organized tour. It’s a nice way to get to know a new place in the company of fellow travelers. Moreover, you could get a travel guide to your destination to learn which places to visit or what to do. Finally, another major concern when traveling at any age is security. You should get some travel insurance and find a safe and close place for your passport. And don’t forget to take your medicine and prescriptions with you. Now, bearing all that in mind, grab your bag and enjoy your trip!

Approaching the Age of Autonomous Vehicles #Infographic #Autonomy #Vehicles

While the concept of self-driving cars seems like a futuristic dream, the reality is not as far away as one might think. With car companies plus technology gurus working around the clock, our roads will be filled with autonomous vehicles sooner rather than later – a major boon for the economy, the environment, and people’s safety.

As it stands currently, commuters in the U.S. spend almost two days each year stuck in traffic, and statistics show that each year, more than 30,000 people die in car accidents. The world of self-driving cars will help ease these burdens and more. Some positive benefits include:

-The cutting of CO2 emissions by 300 million tons per year. This is the equivalent of over 87 coal-fired power plants.
-Removing the necessity of up to 90% of parking lots.
-Potentially saving $190 billion per year as it relates to traffic accident costs.

In honor of the self-driving future that is not too far down the road, Swift Navigation, a San Francisco-based startup building centimeter-accurate GPS technology, presents an infographic “Approaching the Age of Autonomous Vehicles.”

Ireland: An Aging Country #Infographic #Demography

With the current global awareness of the pension crisis, we decided to explore how Ireland fares out when it comes to its citizen’s attitude toward personal pensions. Tapping into the Central Statistics Office’s vast database of information from the recent Census conducted in Ireland, we were able to identify some amazing statistics that back up the global concern around pensions. With an aging population, citizens of Ireland need to focus on starting their pensions at a younger age. By doing so provides a pensioner with a more fruitful and satisfying retirement.

Current statistics show that 1 in 5 Irish citizens will be over 65 by 2046. With this, the government will not be able to carry this burden, hence the requirement to protect your future and start a pension. It is also expected that with the aging population our pensions will also begin at a later age and in 2045 it may be 70-year old’s instead of the current 68 for retirement.

It is clear from this infographic that the sooner you act and invest in a pension the better positioned you will be when it comes to drawing your pension. Zurich Life wants to raise the awareness that this is not just something of concern in the Republic of Ireland but across the globe.
