Grey Nomads are retired people in Australia who spend several months every year travelling around the country, usually during winter when they head north to the warmth of the tropics. While Australian retirees have done this for years, after a lifetime of working hard in the cities, it's only fairly recently that their numbers have grown dramatically and they have been recognised as a unique social group.
Would you like to be a grey nomad one day? What would you like to do and where would you like to visit?
I am at the stage of being able to be a grey nomad only sadly, I have no one to do my nomading with!
I would like to do it but would possibly have a problem being with someone 24/7 for 6 months in such a small space!
After being alone for about 3 years, I do not know if I could now cope with this sort of travel, however love the idea.
I also have the problem of two dogs so while I am a grey nomad in age, I am not in travel!
Been there, done that. Now with two beautiful grandchildren 25 minutes away, I find one month is the maximum time I want to spend away from them. They grow up so quickly, and I want a relationship that will last beyond their "cute" years.
