    TRAVEL ADVENTURES IN RETIREMENT

    TRAVEL ADVENTURES IN RETIREMENT

    In this series of Rewirement from Legal & General, Angellica Bell is hearing colourful, unique and inspiring stories from people in retirement.

     

    Many a new retiree has travel on their bucket list, but the pandemic has seen people put their plans on hold.

     

    Looking to the future, there are plenty of other things to consider beyond global pandemics: from escalating health insurance costs to physically ageing, thinking smart about your later life travel plans is the best weapon to achieve your dreams.

     

    Angellica hears inspiring stories from June and Elizabeth in this episode.

     

    When June was unexpectedly widowed early in her retirement years, she already owned an avocado farm that she’d bought with her husband in Spain. June explains how she took time out, revisited her backpacking, Harley-Davison-riding roots, and re-planned a future where her travel habit was key.

     

    Elizabeth and her husband are passionate about globetrotting – meeting new people and experiencing new locations with other travellers. Often the oldest on their adventures, nothing phases her. Next stop: the Northern Lights!

     

    In the studio, Angellica’s joined by travel journalist Mark Hodson for some smart words on planning the right trips at the right time of life, and Legal & General’s Claire Singleton gives sound suggestions for how you might fund that special trip, whatever your life stage or situation.

    CHANGING CAREER LATER IN LIFE

    CHANGING CAREER LATER IN LIFE

    In a brand new series of Rewirement from Legal & General, Angellica Bell is hearing colourful, unique and inspiring stories from people in retirement.

     

    Fancy a change later in life? You’re not alone.

     

    In this episode Angellica chats to Mick and Jacky. Mick faced redundancy after the colliery he worked at closed, but he chose to take advantage of the retraining opportunity and followed his dream of becoming a ski instructor.

     

    Jacky is a lifelong learner. She was able to leave her business career in her 50s but says she’ll probably still be working when she’s 100. She shares her story of pursuing her interest in psychology, a new career working with young people, life in local politics and her plans to write a trilogy of novels.

     

    Whatever your ambitions are, smart planning and a solid financial base are a big part of having the lifestyle you dream of later in life. Angellica also chats to Stuart Lewis, the CEO and Founder of Rest Less, a community founded to inspire the over 50s, as well as Legal & General’s Emma Byron, Managing Director of Retirement Solutions.

    SO, WHAT DO YOU DO?

    SO, WHAT DO YOU DO?

    In a brand new series of Rewirement from Legal & General, Angellica Bell is hearing colourful, unique and inspiring stories from people in retirement.

     

    The right way to retire is the way that’s right for you, so Angellica’s on a mission to gather ideas, inspiration and smart tips from experts in healthy ageing.

     

    To kick off the series, Angellica’s chatting to people who have embraced the chance to fulfil passions and meaningful projects after the day job has ended.

     

    We hear from Nigel, a former university academic who wanted to use his considerable experience to make meaningful change to the lives of people in his community. Nigel explains how pursuing this path has been satisfying for him and helped him meet new people in retirement.

     

    And creative powerhouse Rosetta, a lifelong artist who also runs a sustainable development project with her husband in Gambia, in addition to many other pursuits. She explains how she splits her time between her two homes and why retirement means ‘FREEDOM’ to her!

     

    To look at some of the practical steps you can take to identify, plan for and take action on your retirement dreams, Legal & General’s Andrew Kail and Helen Cathcart, Founder of Bolder, a website to empower us all in growing older, share their thoughts.

Fascinating stories

Really opens your eyes to the possibilities for life after 50. Amazing real life stories.

Rebecca Shippy ,

Interesting listen

Made me think about what I might do in my retirement. I like the idea about challenging ideas around ageing.

Karen MD ,

A helpful tool when thinking about retirement

This series gives bitesize chunks of information in a non technical way. It’s nice to hear what other people are doing. I understand the options available a little bit better after listening.
