Yearning for the golden era of travel where paper tickets reigned supreme and in-flight smoking was a mark of sophistication? Here’s a tongue-in-cheek journey down memory lane that dives into the ten travel habits Boomers lived with.
Before everything went digital, travel was about losing your ticket at the bottom of your bag or accidentally leaving it on the kitchen table. What’s more fun than a panic attack at the check-in desk? Boomers sure know the thrill!
Remember the good old days when sharing vacation snaps meant holding your friends hostage in your living room for a two-hour slideshow? Who doesn’t miss the ‘oohs’, ‘ahhs’, and stifled yawns echoing in the background? (Not me!)
