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!

Victorian Turkish Bath
In amongst the large modern office blocks in the City of London is this Turkish Bath built in 1895. This Moorish style entrance survived the Blitz when this area was heavily bombed. Once inside you go down a winding staircase to the baths below. The baths remained open until 1954.
In more recent times the building has been used as a restaurant but it is currently closed.
