Age is not a barrier, attitude is.
Sounds like this trip could be the tip of the iceberg. ;)

If a 73-year-old man can fly freelance courier to Singapore and sleep in an airport for the adventure and the shear experience of it, you sure are not to old to travel!

Hello there

Like everybody else have said, you're never too old to follw your dreams and travel. I'm 23 now, but one of my best friends is a few years younger than you. She is very young at heart too. I'm trying to convince her to go as well as she has been going through a hard time lately. I wish more people were like you and i want you to know that us young people have so much respect for people like you when you still follow your dreams like that.
I wish you all the best on your travel.

only 2 phrases to it:

1. carpe diem: seize the day

2. get busy living/travelling, or get busy dying /doubting yourself

Claire - I'd go with #1 and the first half of #2!!!! The dying thing is not a good look!

Here's a little something from one of my favorites:

I'm growing older but not up
My metabolic rate is pleasantly stuck
Let those winds of time blow over my head
I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead

(Growing Older But Not Up - Jimmy Buffett)

Yeah, I'm a parrothead through and through!

your either alive, or your dead. if you alive, travel. if your dead, well, hope for reincarnation.
Seriously, do it girl! so you got a few years on us, so what that just makes it that much more badass that your fufilling your dream now when so many others would just give up. so go for it, and take my love and regards with you! everything always works out, i know.
your an inspiration,
take care
