    I actually know a lot of people that have taken trips upon retirement! We just had one of my favorite people retire from my company and they took an east coast cruise.

    My husband and I have been planning my early retirement trip for years now. We have been holding off on the safari trip until then. The hard part is picking where to go now!

      Hi Brianna! We actually just spent 2 weeks in Vietnam, loved it! Also did Thailand and Cambodia a year ago (Siem Reap is magical to me). Would love to chat more about your work and how you got into it? Asia is of wide interest! · (0 likelikes)

    We just retired in November and took off for 8 weeks in Colombia and Ecuador in January. Next is South Africa in September for 2 months and then Bhutan, Laos and Myanmar in January for 2 months. Our new life! Call it what you will, but after 3 kids, 2 grandkids and 35 year careers for each of us, it's our Second Honeymoon as we rediscover each other! Life is good...

      Gina - No we did not make it there because we had already done the "coffee regiion" when we were in Costa Rica. Will you be headed to Colombia, or have you been? Salento was a favorite area, but we loved all of Colombia! · (1 likelikes)

      I had to ask because my husband and I were recently in Salamina and met a recently retired couple who were traveling S. America for two months—such a coincidence! :) · (0 likelikes)

    My husband and I both retired about two years ago. We were educators, so we rewarded ourselves by taking a beach vacation in the fall after school had started again. Just because we could.

    People do, right? there might not be a name for it - but look around any airport, or the tourist destinations of any major city and you'll find retirees taking advantage of their new found wealth of time to do things they never got around to whilst working.

    I know that when I retire (hopefully a bit earlier than 40 years from now) I'll certainly be seeing bits of the world I haven't seen, and spending much more time in the bits of it I love - specifically Fukuoka, Ohope, Lake Rotoiti which never fail to make me feel completely relaxed and at ease, perfect for longer holidays and extended stays.

    All this mooning ... will it never stop? Ha, ha!

    In all seriousness, though, why "reward" ourselves with travel? I favor making it part of our life. We don't need a milestone to justify travel, am I right?

    I guess I see a lot of evidence to the contrary—it's just that no one has a specific name for it. People are always famously talking about how they plan to travel when they retire, and I've personally seen that a lot of them do it. In fact, we just met a great couple while we were in Colombia; they were both fairly recently retired and had been traveling around South America like a couple of backpacking kids for something like two months. Pretty awesome!

    Don't wait for your retirement to start trveling. I know a lot of coworker who wanted to travel when they retired but had never done it beffor. If you've never travel, you might not at your retirement. Start now, start small. But yes, travel !

    Actually, I think people do reward themselves with travel when they retire since that's the biggest segment for luxury travel. :)

    I've met many people who do just that! I also know people who have decided to retire in some of their favorite locations - my parents have decided to split their time between Austin and Prince Edward Island. However, as retirement ages get pushed back later and later, I think it's important not to wait to travel - health issues and a fixed income can make it difficult to go as far as you might have once wished.
