Hello everyone. I've talked about retirement before, haven't I? That's because it's the next big step in my life. I'm going to retire next year. When I retire, aged sixty-two and a half, I'll have been working for forty years! Gosh, that's a long time, isn't it? I wonder how many students I'll have taught by then. Thousands I suppose. I've been saving money for a while so I hope that when I retire I'll have saved enough money to live comfortably in my retirement. I'll need some money because I don't plan to stop at home and watch TV. I've got travel plans. I've already visited Canada and the United States but I've never been to Central or South America, and I'd like to go there. I've travelled a lot in Europe but I haven't been to Scandinavia yet. I hope that when I get too old to travel any more I'll have visited every region in the world! I hope that's not too optimistic. Have you got any travel plans? Is there any place in the world that you'd really like to go to, and if there is, why not write and tell us about it?
