My birth certificate tells me I’m 50-something. But can that really be true….?
I still feel much younger, although I guess there is a deepening fissure between my still youthfully energetic mind and the increasingly creaking body.
I’m on the cusp of taking a break from full-time employment, after way too many years spent messing around with numbers.
I’m planning to embrace some exciting new opportunities after packing away my abacus for the last time. Current plans include learning Italian, walking the Hadrian’s Wall path, and seeing if I can carve out a writing career.
And travelling, a lifelong addiction that needs to be fed more than ever. I’m an ageing junkie, with scars all over my yellowing passport. Currently on the horizon are Norway in August 2014, Spain in September, and Australia in early 2015 to see the Aussie Open tennis in Melbourne. Sport…another addiction that can’t be sated.
But I’d also like to share the spirit of a vibrant post-work life with you, through this evolving website. Together we can hopefully make our more mature years just that little more exciting, and spur each other on to embrace the endless opportunities out there, before it’s too late.
Stay tuned to get involved, and to share your own thoughts on getting the most out of The Retirement Zone….
