The third stage of life

In Spanish, there is a nice expression for seniors or old people: tercera edad, the third stage of life.

Once you have held out that long, you are rewarded with reduced ticket prices.

About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a writer, a spy or a hobo.

    Cool ! But I like more the Bavarian way of granting elder people some discount (at least they have this rule in the Karl Valentin Museum):
    “People above the age of 70 can visit free-of-charge if they are accompanied by their parents”

    • Haha!
      In Italy, entrance was/is free in many museums to make seniors (65+) from all EU countries. My Dad saved a lot of money when he visited me in Sicily.

    En Bolivia las personas de la tercera edad, gozan del descuento de un 10% en impuestos inmuebles, servicios básicos y transporte publico.
