10 Reasons a Holy Land Tour is Perfect in Your 60’s
February 19, 2018
Isn’t travel one of the best things about reaching your 60s? There’s something so freeing about organizing your life in ways that are satisfying—checking items off your bucket list one by one.
And for so many people in their “golden years,” bucket-list travels are more than just journeys to another crowded resort or busy city. The focus is on meaning, finding adventures and experiences that go beyond relaxation to satisfy a secret place in the soul. A Minneapolis Holy Land tour package isn’t just a trip to charming cities and quaint villages—it’s a chance to connect with your spiritual heritage and rekindle your Christian walk.
Simply put, if you’ve ever considered a Holy Land tour, now is the time to go—and here are 10 reasons why it will be even better as a 60-something traveler.
1. mature faith gives deeper meaning to holy land history.
You’ve been following the Lord for years and your faith has been tried and tested and proved by decades of experience. Gaining a deeper understanding of the life of our Savior and truly appreciating the history of your faith will be even more meaningful at this stage in your life.
2. you know your travel priorities—and aren’t afraid to fulfill them.
Remember what it was like traveling with your children? Everything revolved around keeping them happy and entertained, doing things that interested them. And it was right and admirable to consider their feelings on family vacations.
But things are different now—you can finally pursue your own objectives and make your interests a priority when you travel. If you’ve always wanted to see the Galilee and explore where the bulk of Jesus’ ministry took place, you’re finally free to do it.
3. you don’t have to worry about the stress of planning.
There’s something incredibly freeing about letting someone else take the hassles out of arranging your travel—everything from airport transfers to hotel accommodations and even meals and cultural events. Read what Jim had to say about his Holy Land tour:
4. the pace is completely up to you.
When you’re young, the temptation is to do as much as possible in the shortest amount of time. Now, you’re free to really dig deep into the things that interest you and spend your time satisfying your own spiritual needs.
If you want to spend four days in Jerusalem, you can—Faith Travel Experts can design a tour for travelers who want a slower pace and in-depth exploration of Jesus’ Last Days.
5. you can actually take the time to do it right.
Remember when your travel schedule was dictated by school vacations and the number of vacation days you had banked at work? The thought of a two-week Holy Land tour, was about as realistic as a flying pig. At this stage in your life, you’ve got the time and flexibility you need to take the big trips you always dreamed about. Your time is your own. Want to extend your stay by visiting Eqypt and taking a trip down the Nile River after the tour? No problem! We can take care of all the arrangements for you.
6. you’ve got the life experiences to really appreciate new cultures and cuisines.
Because of its unique location at the crossroads between Europe, Asia and Africa, Israel is a cultural melting pot. In particular Israel is well known for its food, which is influenced by many cultures, and now you’re at a stage in life to understand and appreciate the distinctive flavors and nuances of Israeli food and drink. Try hummus and falafel, shakshuka, and St. Peter’s fish, or try one of the many world-class wines produced at an Israeli winery.
7. now is the “future” you’ve been saving for.
You spent years being frugal, setting aside money so you could live well in the future—and all that sensible savings has finally paid off. You’ve got a nest egg set aside with no better use than to do something meaningful and educational that you’ve always wanted to do.
And what could be more meaningful than indulging your passion for a lifetime of learning and your desire to enrich your faith with a Holy Land Tour Package, visiting the significant places that shaped the Christian faith?
8. your 60s are the perfect time to break out of your rut and do something completely different.
Maybe you’ve been mostly traveling with recreation and relaxation in mind—a Caribbean cruise or a golf escape at a spa or club. Why not do something unconventional and combine travel while enriching your faith and building community with fellow Christians?
9. it’s actually amazing to make new lifetime friends in your 60s.
Many people who take Holy Land tours develop lasting friendships with people they meet on their trip—you’re traveling with people who share your passion for history, faith, and adventure and are often in your same stage of life.
You’d be surprised at how many of our guests stay in contact with one another long after the tour ends. It’s one of the unexpected bonuses of a Holy Land tour in your 60’s. Here is one of the testimonials that we have received:
10. you’ll never have a better chance to experience the uniqueness of the holy land and you’ll never be in a better place mentally and physically to enjoy it.
It’s rather incredible, when you think about it, that you can walk the same paths that Jesus walked and see many of the same sights that He saw! Only in the Holy Land!
Your lifetime experiences have uniquely prepared you to appreciate and celebrate your faith in a way you might never have done in your 20’s and 30’s. You’ve got a broad view of history and a deeper understanding of how faith in Jesus has blessed you over the years.
This is the opportunity of a lifetime to experience the birthplace of your faith and to celebrate it with others from all over the world who cherish their faith just as you do.
