Follow the life of a recently retired teacher. The bucket lists have been written. How much can be achieved in the next 10 years - from the mundane (baking an edible cake) to the ridiculous (kayaking through the rain forest).
This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

There was one thing I had to do in Singapore and that was to enjoy a Singapore Sling cocktail in the Long bar of Raffles Hotel. It is the epitome of colonial elegance in the midst of the modern skyscrapers.
I can just imagine the likes of Noel Coward and friends having a cup of tea in the shade in this quiet corner.
But here is where the action takes place - The Long Bar
This is where you sit under the straw fans sipping cocktails.
The cocktail of choice - The Singapore Sling, of course!
