Something that I’m often told by clients is that the best part about retirement is having the time to do some of their travel at their own pace, rather than trying to squeeze everything into annual leave or even school holidays.

In late 2012 our client Robyn took the leap and finished up work, and in 2013 we ran through her retirement projections to show her that yes she could afford the new car she had her eye on. Well she has put it to great use, very quickly putting 17,000 kilometres on the clock by going on a roadtrip down to Victoria, across to South Australia, up to the Northern Territory, back east to see friends in Queensland and then back home to Canberra via New South Wales!

Check out some of her beautiful photos below.

…and remember that if you’re wondering about your own retirement, the best time to start planning is right now!
