This is an inspirational story of a woman, an adventurous Sue Austin, who has decided to live life her way. She does not see her age as an impediment to achieving her goals. One of her main goals was to follow in the footsteps of her parents and see the country–and the world. Her book, Never Too Old for Adventure has Sue outlining her adventures as she visited all 50 states in less than 5 months. She chronicles her experiences criss-crossing the country by land, air and sea, and outlines how she was able to achieve her goal of seeing the entire country.
According to a press release published by PrWeb, some of the experiences that Sue encountered included:
“Among the experiences Austin details are the cliff swallows of San Juan Capistrano, Colonial Williamsburg, Potomac River tour, Clippership sail in New York City, Cape Cod Bay, Plymouth Rock (a nod to Austin’s four direct descendants who sailed on the Mayflower), Badlands National Park in South Dakota, Devils Tower in Wyoming, Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park, Grand Canyon and Waikiki Beach. She saves money on souvenirs by buying T-shirts at thrift shops for places she planned to see. Thanks to her flexibility about accommodations – sleeping in her car, staying with friends and family and using vouchers from Groupon and Living Social – Austin saved thousands of dollars on her trip, inspiring anyone with an eye for deals and an adventurous spirit to plan his or her own journey.”
