Lifestyle

KAA-Boomers have a lot they want to experience. They are going to change the world again. They are not interested in disengaging but in living and enjoying the next 40 years of their lives. That will mean everything from travel, experiencing the world and what it has to offer, how they live, communicate and transport themselves.
