Planet Retirement can sometimes be a bewildering place and with a scarcity of UK retirement blogs out there (other than those proffering financial advice) I thought I'd keep my own.

Please visit from time to time and do add your comments. Popular posts and those highlighting my journey are specifically pinpointed on the right hand side together with a list of topics covered. Alternatively you may prefer to look at the Summary or the Tips from Wisdom Acquired or even our Have Visited List with its retirement atlas and dip in and out of the blog using the links given.

Have Visited List

I love making lists. There's nothing more satisfying than being able to tick off items on them. So much so, it is rumoured that all of us, at one time or another and some more than others, have actually added something to a To Do List that we have already done. 
Why would we do that? 
For the satisfaction of ticking it off, of course!

In retirement our To See Lists/Bucket Lists, call them what you will, exist only in the mind rather than on paper or digitally. They are a work in progress, nurtured by impetuosity or opportunity. Instead below are links to the blog entries about places that we have visited, listed for no other reason than that they have actually been ticked off:
