Hi. Thanks for the comments. Yes. I have been traveling. My first trip was a spur of the moment trip to Prague about 2 months after retired. I’ve done international and US trips. Just returned from a 3 week road trip. Off to Copenhagen in two weeks. I do love travel but there are drawbacks. It is hard to get involved in local a activities or classes because you may be gone. And you do lose some social connections on retirement and being gone regularly does make it harder. That said, I wouldn’t have missed any of my trips. Favorites: Namibia, Sri Lanka, France and Istanbul. Happy weekend.
