Scout the Local Cuisine
Adventurous travel can also mean adventurous cuisine. Retirees love to enjoy the local fare as much as the next traveler, but baby boomers' diets can be a bit more restrictive, so it's important to check it out ahead of time to make sure your needs can be met. Besides simple things to ask, like, "Is all the food spicy?," you should also make sure that any unique dietary needs can be accommodated. If you have diabetes, make sure to bring along whatever snacks you usually have on-hand at home so you aren't caught in a tough situation. Also, make sure you pack an ample supply of any dietary supplements you need.
