We are mid-50's, and still working FT. We hope to both step down to PT by end of 2007 or early 2008.
We travel 5 -6 times a year for pleasure. Some long weekends for family visits (we live in MI, brother & sister live in NC & TX). We take one 2 week foriegn trip each year (Greece this year, France last year), and we are good independent travelers. We speak, anywhere from poorly to well, six languages between us. We will take a week in Quebec this summer, and a Caribbean cruise in December.
In 2008 we hope to take approx. eight weeks traveling. When we fully retire (in 2-3 years) we want to travel three month/year. We look at friends & family our age, and we believe that our "window" for such travel is limited, and we probably won't want to do as much by our mid-60's.
