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!

I'm already Grey.

Would I like to be a Nomad...........Nope.

I want to work in what I am doing, till I am not able.

No time for travel.Too much to do!
Sounds like a whole lot of fun to me - no responsibilities, and just endless hours to explore Australia.

Although I am many years away from ever being eligible to be one, I hate travelling, so know that I never would.
I would love to be able to do this, but I'm afraid we'll run out of fuel before I get the chance!

I'd probably run out of ides. "Ooh look, I've got to the corner shop!"

I might even run out of . . . .* ideas* too. Beware the ides of March. Haha.

LOL! I don't think you have to worry too much about it, unless you're Caesar of course. :-P

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.
I have no partner now, so for me it would not be in my best interest.
oops so sorry had no idea I had already put an answer.
See! can you imagine me grey nomading alone? good grief!

Ye, yes yes! It is our dream, it is our goal, it is only months away from being a reality. Back of Bourke here we come.
