I love this story. Keith Wright is now 95 years old, and yet he’s ready to set off on another backpacking trip across Europe. Rather than sit at home watching T.V., Mr Wright a World War Two veteran, is spending his time staying in hostels and exploring the world!

He doesn’t stay on the beaten path either as he likes to “walk back streets and take trains”. He mentions that almost everyone he comes in contact with is pleasant, although pickpockets are a problem throughout Europe. I can only hope that if I manage to live as long, I’ll be continuing to enjoy the sport of backpacking as he is. Simply Amazing.
