Five Kinds Of Trips You Need To Take After Your Retirement
Gone are the days when the world associated a sad, despairing image along with the word “retirement”. Now retirement means the start of a new era, a new life free of all worries, along with an impressive bank account and the freedom to do exactly what you love. Life can’t get any better than this! On top of that, if you are someone who loves to travel, you won’t have to worry about taking leaves anymore. You are your own boss now! Here are six kinds of trips you need to take once you have left your job for good.
Escape To An Exotic Island
The first thing that you need to do after finishing your very hectic and happening work life is to unwind. Plan a getaway to an island and spend a few days there in complete leisure. Soak in the sun, get a massage, have exotic cocktails, indulge in water sports, or just lie down on a hammock and read your favorite book. Sounds too good to be true? But it can be all yours! Take it slow and plan a long vacation if you can afford it. Slow travel is all the rage these days, hence be trendy. You can go to those lovely resorts in the Caribbean islands or fly off to the far off Polynesian Islands or the South Asian countries of Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia, among others.
Find Your Roots
In an attempt to find your roots, take a trip to the country of your origin. If it was Ireland, soak in the pub culture of Dublin, enjoy the natural sights, or visit the lovely castles around the country to revive the old charm. If you’re one with Italian roots, explore the countryside of Italy, stay in quaint home stays, explore the local history and heritage, and of course visit the lovely museums. Those with German ancestors can soak in the local culture and marvel in the country’s lovely cities as you find your ancestral village.
Chase Your Passion
After retiring, you have all the time in the world and you can also finally give in to passions and indulge in a few of them as best as you can afford. For example, the culture-enthusiast might want to visit exotic places; the adventurist might want to try new things, activities, or new cuisines. It doesn’t have to be a bungee jumping or sky-diving adventure from some exotic country. Closer home, exploring a quaint city, finding the hole-in-the-wall eateries, or driving through a scenic road can be quite exhilarating, too. Whether it is wine, wildlife, photography, history, take a vacation based solely on your passion!
All these years, you probably didn’t have time for your better half. Take this opportunity to show them that they mean the world to you. Europe is full of classic and romantic cities that are perfect for a vacation to rekindle your romance with your other half. Maybe you can even renew your vows in front of the iconic Eiffel Tower or walk with your partner on the roads of Prague. You can even go to the Tuscan countryside and feast on the best Italian fare as you fall in love again. Wherever romantic destination you and your partner fancy, just go and enjoy being together.
Go On A Shopping Spree
Shopaholics fret not! There are lots of options for you to take a trip just for the sake of shopping. Dubai is often called a shopping haven and they even have a shopping festival. Take advantage of all the discounts and also discover a lovely cosmopolitan city that also boasts of having high-end restaurants and hotels, too. If Dubai is not your cup of tea, head to London and get your shopping done in Harrod’s. In case, you didn’t know, the Queen also shops from Harrod’s, so you will have the best company. And closer home, you can always take a trip to the Big Apple, for it can never bore you, and shopping in New York is something that you can never get tired of.
So now you know how exciting retirement can get! Exploring all these options, it is clear that this is just a great start and you have many more years to have fun, stay healthy, and pursue your dreams. Here’s to new beginnings!
