Redefining Retirement

In 2014 we retired, a bit on the early side, to live a simpler life and to travel the world. By sharing our journey, we hope to inspire others to redefine retirement. Boomer-aged travel is on the rise and we are excited to be a part of the growing trend. Boomers are making it happen  It’s an interesting phenomenon, how many of us are turning away from the culture of traditional retirement and redefining our path.  You can learn more about this trend on our Purposeful Planning & Retirement page.

Our site offers readers a variety of content including classic road trips, adventures abroad, travel tips, the latest trends in retirement and hospitality intrigue.  From time to time we share the voices and highlight the travels and/or work of others in the travel and hospitality industry.  And, at times we share travel friendly sites for informational purposes such as bank to bank international money transfers.

Here are a few posts to help you get started.
