How Solo Travelling the World Helped this 83 year-old Widow Grieve & Build Self Confidence with Joy Elliott

July 21, 2022

At 83 years old, Joy Elliott set out to travel the world the way most graduate students do: staying in youth hostels, buying one-way tickets to spontaneous destinations and drinking with strangers. Heartbroken by the loss of her husband, her trip not only “kept her from dying too” but helped her heal from loss, overcome extreme shyness and prove that we can all live an exciting life at any age.

Her new book, “Joy’s Journey” is an inspiration that it’s never too late to fulfill a dream, meet new people and experience transformational change. I smiled the whole time I read it, and I had to have her on the podcast to go deeper into the greatest lessons and most memorable stories of her travels (so far).

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How travelling solo helps you build relationships
  • Why asking for help is important
  • How traveling helps you overcome shyness
  • How to travel on a limited budget
  • How seniors and youth can build relationships with each other
  • How asking for help builds self confidence
  • What stopped Joy from committing suicide
  • Tips for living happily at an old age
  • How someone can be happy living in poverty 

Joy has so many great lessons in this episode. Please listen & share with someone who could use a reminder that it’s never too late in life to do anything you want!
