Welcome to my blog

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!

Stowe gardens

The landscape gardens at Stowe in Buckinghamshire are full of ornamental lakes, wooded valleys and over 40 monument temples. It was taken over by the National Trust in 1989 and is one of their most popular gardens. Here are a few reflections from my visit there this week.

  9. I love the premise of your blog! I married my husband when I turned 50, retired (after a golden handshake) and have been traveling ever since! My 50's and 60's have been pretty good years! Hope yours are as well!!! Have fun!
