One of the things many of us do as we dream of the life of retirement and living in our golden years is to enjoy some adventures and vacations that you may have put off when raising the kids. When you have those little ones in your life, you don’t want to miss a single summer when you can take them to Disneyworld or to discover America with them so you can make memories with your family. So if your library of vacation pictures is mostly with Mickey and Goofy or on a huge water slide at Sea World, those are memories worth keeping forever.
But now that the kids are off with families of their own and you are in these years that are just for you. So now it's time for the vacation for which you have been waiting. It's time for a vacation that is an adventure but also one in which you wallow in the lap of luxury. It is time for a vacation that you see things you never have before.
If there is any real danger to be aware of it is overindulgence. You should go for the best food, drink and party opportunities that, if you don’t pace yourself, you could wear yourself out in the first few days. So get your rest and watch your consumption. Be aware that the rich foods that you are enjoying. And don't forget your exercise.
To maximize your enjoyment, do some research up front about where you will be traveling so you know what to enjoy and what kind of shopping you want to do while you are there.
You certainly deserve to be pampered and have an adventure, now that you have reached that plateau in your life of retirement. So get out there and have a great time. And take lots of pictures. They will give you a ton of joy, that you are entitled to have!
