In 2011 I found myself with the choice of continuing to work or taking early retirement at age 47. I chose not to work. More about that decision in a future post. I live in Australia, have teenage twins at Uni, a wife doing a Phd, a dog, and an obsession with cycling.
As I embarked upon this new phase in my life, I did a bit of research and discovered a few blogs dealing with early retirement. I have enjoyed following those, and decided too add my own experiences and observations on early retirement just for the enjoyment of writing. My daughter recently started her own blog which is also a source of inspiration.
