Golden year cruising here I come

Just another reason to live simply and stay well

Have you see the price tags for retirement homes or assisting living?? OMG you have to be super rich! We aren’t and I won’t financially burden our daughters. For years, I’ve been overwhelmed just scaping by to save for retirement.

Today, our frugality got a lot brighter. I read Tom Verde’s For Some a Retirement at Sea article in the New York Times.

I am an adventurer at heart. I love cruising and HATE taking care of big old house. It’s a dream come true. No longer will the “Around the world cruise” remain on my bucket list. When I retire, if not earlier, I’m going on a worldwide cruise, the kind that takes month, for at little as $300 a day (Verde)Taking care of my health and well-being has new meaning.

Now I am striving for wellness and simplicity so our “golden years” can be spent exploring the world!    I have a light at the end of the tunnel. I am saving not just to survive, but to thrive!

Retirement on a ship is not for everyone: You gotta like ships, survive with little more than a few suitcases, and handle ship food and illnesses.  Is retirement at sea for you? Check out these links while considering your journey
