Retirement Travel: A Time to Travel Like Never Before

What do you look forward to the most when you retire? Is it perfecting your golf game, or having the time to take the grandkids to Disney World? Your time opens up when you retire – how do you want to spend it? For those of you who want to travel the world, we couldn’t agree more! What better time to see the world than during your retirement?

Retirement brings about many perks, one of the best being the freedom from a full-time job. Now that you get to decide what to do with your time, traveling sounds like a great way to spend it. You’ve worked hard to build your assets and your nest egg – now it’s time to reward yourself with the trip of a lifetime!

Here are 3 trip ideas we highly recommend putting on your retirement bucket list. Say goodbye to your 9-5 with an incredible adventure!

Live Like Royalty

Celebrate your retirement freedom by spending a week in a privately-owned castle. Drummond Castle in Drogheda, Ireland and Kilcolgan Castle near Galway offer rooms for rent, some with rooftop patios. If you want to rent an entire castle, travel to Tudor Manor House in Somerset, England. You can’t get much more luxurious than that! Thinking about renting a castle? Airbnb makes it easy.

Toast Your Retirement

Toast your retirement with a tour through a breathtaking wine country at home or abroad. Whether you are a wine connoisseur or you’re thinking about taking your first wine tour – there’s a trip out there for everyone. For those of you who are true wine geeks, Georgia is your destination. Known as the “cradle of wine,” Georgia’s winemaking heritage traces way back in time. If you’re really looking to spend the big bucks, travel to Champagne for the wine tour of your dreams. The most luxurious wines are crafted here, and the city offers luxury hotel lodgings close by. If you’re looking for a little history with your wine, Virginia is a great place to start. Jefferson Vineyards is a short drive away from the 48-room Keswick Hall and Golf Club. Sip on wine and history by day and stay in the 1912 Italianate mansion at night.

Discover Your Heritage

It’s natural to get a little nostalgic as we grow older. Instead of flipping through old family albums on the couch, embrace your heritage and visit your family’s country of origin! Now that you have the time, why not do a little research and find out where your roots really began? There’s nothing quite as awe-inspiring as walking down the streets where your ancestors grew up. If you’re not sure where to start, you can go to FamilySearch.org and type in your country of origin and family name.
