My wife and I retired early in January 2015 having decided that life is too short to work until our full retirement age. We wanted to do some travelling whilst we were still reasonably fit and well. We rented out our home to help fund our travels and left the UK in January 2015 .
We have been travelling since then with short breaks back home to see kids and periodic stays at our second home in Turkey.We have visited New Zealand , Australia , SE Asia ,Greece,Croatia, Montenegro, Spain ,Portugal , France ,Italy , Canada ,USA and South Africa.
We travel slowly , usually by public transport on a budget that might be described as Flash-Packer.
We enjoy travel for its own sake , seeing new places , new cultures , food , architecture etc.
