Traveling after Retirement

To retire and travel is a dream that many people have. End working, pack your bags, and travel the world. It does draw up epic images and a rather tingling sensation. But can it be done?

The old bar of 55 to 65 to retire isn’t really in place the way it used to be. The trend has moved much more toward choosing our own retirement age. With the length of retirement growing also, the entire concept has fallen into the hands of the individual to a large degree.

Staying in touch with the ones you love is important, especially if you go on the road. A mobile phone that works all over the world can be done, but not always. Writing letters? Well, good luck with that. It can work, but nowadays, you’re better off to rely on the Internet. Sending your message online will get it there immediately and you might even know when it gets read.

Another option to communicate to family and friends while on vacation exists, however, that you might not have considered. We’re talking about writing a travel blog. It’s a place to talk about your travels and share photos at the same time. Your family can tune to watch your travels but so can a lot of other people, and that could be turned to your advantage. Travel blogs can make money. Some people earn a good living doing it. That kind of income requires a solid knowledge of how to monetize a website and create connections in the travel industry, but you don’t have to go that far. Ask someone who knows some simple tricks to create money from a blog. You have someone like that in your family. Everyone does.

Regardless of blogging income, adding your travels to a blog can put a spotlight on your journeys that you will probably enjoy.
