Interesting questions.

How does she feel about working and does she have any physical limitations that make that difficult? She should probably plan to keep working as long as she is physically able to do so.

Interesting idea about living with your sister. Do they have a good history of getting along with each other? I'll be interested in the comments of others about the joint house buying.

If she keeps on working she can probably afford some trips. That might be a useful incentive. But I'd discourage her from taking money out of savings to indulge that kind of luxury. If she lives on what she earns and travels on the rest, that wouldn't be bad.
