Why go again? Yes… I was asked. Having just done the Lap of Aus’ hubby and I are gearing up to head out again and there are those who wonder why. In a conversation with one of my professional friends, a doctor, I was asked what we plan to do next? The natural assumption in our group of mates as we sat around yarning was that we would now settle down. My friend mentioned how many of her retired patients did the lap and then just wanted to settle down and renew roots. For some this is what travelling around is and it is a wonderful life to have these choices. All part of what is Aussie retirement for so many. When I mentioned that we were off again very shortly, this on a ‘desert run’ I was met with some surprised expressions.
Camped in the Backyard again … It’s nice to combine both of our worlds, the past and the future and this has found us camped up in the back yard yet again after several weeks on the wallaby. When we decided many years ago to travel the country in our retirement as a lifestyle, not merely a holiday, we also decided that we didn’t want to sell the home block to follow our dream. This had some major ramifications of course. It meant that we had to do some serious saving to equip ourselves for our travels, a slow course for two slow horses.
