Letter: Never too old

Sir: In her article about turning fifty (28 May) Bel Mooney bemoans the fact that she will never now backpack around India. I celebrate my 50th birthday in five week, and am doing just that: together with a friend who passes the same milestone in the same month I am backpacking round India this summer. Our route will cover over 2,000 miles from the deserts of Rajahstan to the beaches of Kerala. Pack your rucksack Bel - it's not too late to join us!
