I'll be the fourth person to say that I'd stay close, work through the divorce and the job loss, and put off other big changes until the dust clears.
But, I know that if I were you I'd want to be doing something about the rest of my life. As your title says, you want to START on something.
One big question is "Can I afford to never work again?". I'd copy this list of questions http://www.early-retirement.org/foru...elf-65548.html
and start answering them. It's a good mental activity today, and it needs to be done anyway.
Notice this board also has a "Life after retirement" forum. That's a great place to brainstorm ideas. You'll find people who are into living on the road and people who have spent time in Europe.
