RetiredAndTravelling Travel Blog
We are RetiredAndTravelling around the world. When we semi-retired early, it gave us the opportunity to travel about 6 months of the year in multiple trips. Our trips included both cruising travel and land-based travel spots. Some are short long weekend breaks. But we also cover longer trips that cover multiple cities and countries for 30 to 60 days.
When we travel we love to explore towns and nature spots. Adventure travel gets our blood moving. And we have been known to travel for food, wine tasting and to splurge on Afternoon Tea.
Our travel blog posts are in-depth and filled with pictures. Travel summaries provide an overview of trips with links to the detailed posts. We always try to offer travel tips to help you plan and enjoy the experiences when you travel.
We hope the RetiredAndTravelling travel blog will help to fuel your travel wanderlust!

We travelled extensively by land in France, Portugal, Spain and Italy. A long road trip in Central Europe took us to the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria and Switzerland. Blog posts covered multiple regions, cities and towns.
Several cruises took us through many areas of the Mediterranean. We also cruised around the Scandinavian countries. This included travel to Balkan areas like Russia and Estonia. A summer cruise took us up through Northern Europe into the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland. That cruise also covered many ports around the UK. After the pandemic we were delighted to return to cruise with a trip from Barcelona to Lisbon that included a return to the Canary Islands.
