Since arriving in Bunbury in September 2016 we have been kept incredibly busy so much that I have even neglected to keep up my travel blog. We spent three very tiring but satisfying months painting our daughter’s house inside and out and even though it now looks fantastic we are not in a great hurry to repeat the exercise any time soon!

We did have a wonderful time in Bunbury, spending time with Kylie, exploring the surrounding areas such as the wineries, beaches, cheese factories and breweries etc. Also, we made time to take up Rock and Roll dancing and surprised ourselves in that we can now actually string a few moves together! I even completed a course in French revision and hopefully will be more confident conversing when Pete and I tour France on 19th of May. We will be there for 7 weeks and so looking forward to exploring the country along with neighbouring Spain and Portugal.

We had a fantastic time in New Zealand during the months of Feb to April, enjoying wonderful weather and catching up with friends and family after so long away. The country was so green after living in Western Australia with its brown sandy soil everywhere and tramping up several mountains and hiking many bush tracks without the thought of snakes was a real plus!

We are now back in Bunbury but will be heading for Darwin soon where we will then fly out for France.

Life is certainly busy now that we have retired but while we have excellent health and fitness now is the time to explore.

personal question?
Peter and suzanne, I know its a personal question, you may have answered elsewhere, but how do you fund all this travel? We met on your recent visit to Auckland and we are in a similar stage of life but I cant work out how to travel constantly. Do you plan to "bounce the last cheque" or have you built enough passive income to continue indefinitely?
