etiring at 62 was great, we traveled, Viking became our home away from home as we truly relaxed, got away, Amsterdam to Budapest, retiring at 62 was great, we traveled, Viking became our home away from home as we truly relaxed, got away, Amsterdam to Budapest, St Petersburg to Moscow, Bergen Norway to the far North land of the Midnight Sun, and back down to London as well as other jaunts... Today at 80, I really doubt those same trips would be nearly as enjoyable, maybe, but they were a bit strenuous at times..

Yup, that was one of my points. When Covid hit virtually all travel shut down, you could not go anywhere even if you had the money. No Amsterdam, no Budapest, no Vienna, no Norway....maybe some of those are starting to open up. Not Australia or New Zealand, though.

And now, you can't go to St Petersburg or Moscow. That option has been closed off. IN 2018 we took a 13 day river cruise from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

Travel and do stuff when you can, because later on it may not be possible.

The purpose of money in retirement is to be able do DO things, not to have the best grade of gruel spooned into your mouth in the old-age home.
