FIRE Station Fun – Big Wonderful World

Screen Shot 2016-07-07 at 3.31.11 PM

When people have asked “What are you going to do in early retirement?” – I’ve often answered that it is a great big wonderful world filled with things I am interested in learning about and trying.  We are just back from our summer vacation to Tokyo & Kyoto and I am amazed at how much of the world we know so little about.  There is so much to discover!

Here is a link to my ‘Milestone’ post from March where I talked about all of the things I’m hoping to do in early retirement – and an update two months later on how things are going.  As you will see, I have found a lot of things that I view as ‘better to do’ in early retirement than go to work every day.  Here’s hoping your journey to financial independence & retiring early (FIRE) ends up just as rewarding!

  1. On a certain level, I don’t mind working. The problem is it ultimately takes too much time and energy away from all the others things in life that you want to do.

    1. My weak spot is reading books right now. I have a whole stack of them I’d like to start, but haven’t made time for a single one!

  2. With all the things I’ve been putting off until early retirement, I expect I’ll be busier than ever once I actually have the time to do those things.

    How did you like Japan? I was there once, and left with mixed reviews. The best part was feeling really, really tall everywhere I went.



    1. Japan was fantastic. I’m 6’2″ – so definitely a big guy over there. I’ve truthfully been SO busy in early retirement, I definitely have been busier than when I was working. The math doesn’t make sense, but it’s true.

  3. Have you finished to read Shogun?
    Try another Japanese book, Musashi ( and after that, Taiko). For me was better than Shogun ( even I appreciated James Clavel). After reading the book, I saw the movie Musashi.
