Active senior Carmel Helman is one of the thousands of over-sixties who have been firmly bitten by the travel bug, completing the gruelling Camino de Santiago, an 800km pilgrimage across Europe.
The Ingenia Lifestyle Lara resident said the trip was very liberating, and the first time she was travelling part of the trip on her own, which fuelled a sense of excitement.
“I found the Camino Trail very liberating and rewarding – I came home feeling calmer and with a great sense of achievement,” Carmel said.
Carmel is one of thousands of Australians aged 60 plus who are increasingly catching the travel bug compared to the younger population.
“Ingenia Lifestyle Lara is great for people who love to travel – I can lock and leave and enjoy my trip and know there are plenty of people to check in on your home.”
Ingenia Lifestyle Lara Regional Sales Manager Zoe Ilich-Paul said the flexibility of the lock up and leave provided residents with more security.
“We encourage our residents to be adventurous and connect with like-minded friends and neighbours in a safe and secure community,” Zoe said.
“As Carmel increased her training, she walked the community grounds daily with her backpack and walking boots, making all the neighbours very curious as to what she was doing.
“The facilities at Lara were a real asset to Carmel’s training as she was able to use the gym to build her strength with some weight training and the pool for additional training,” Zoe said.
