Hi! Welcome to the Retirement Journeys (RJ) website. Before I describe what you’ll find and how to find it, here are a couple of links that will provide some background.

Beginning with September 2017, I have started to send out my newsletter twice a month (sometimes personal travel or business may interfere). The newsletter announces new posts, podcasts and contains other information.

Top Menu – Our Journey

The top menu contains the stages of our personal retirement journey – The Foundation (financial, health & lifestyle), Pre-retirement, Decision Day, Arriving, Surviving and Retirement. For each stage I go into detail about our experience – what we did, how we did it and our lessons learned.

Sharing our experience is why we created Retirement Journeys.  I hope that through our experience  you will find inspiration and information for your own journey.

The Second Menu

Here you’ll find:

Left Sidebar

At the top of the left sidebar are links (icons) to the RJ YouTube channel and Facebook page.

There’s a link to subscribe to the RJ podcast on iTunes.

Occasionally there may be a link to a past post or other content.


Center Column


This is where the most recent blog posts and podcasts are displayed in magazine style. Each blog post is identified by category, author and date. The most recent post serves as a magazine cover. Below the cover are the 4 most recent posts. Note that each post is classified into one of 5 categories: financial, general interest, lifestyle, health and podcast.


Right Sidebar

At the top of the right sidebar, under More, is where you can signup to receive our newsletter.

The next thing in the right sidebar is titled Find Blogs By Category. When you click on the drop down menu you’ll see all 5 blog categories. When you click on a category you will get all of the posts for that category! Note that you may have to hit enter to begin the search.

Next is a list of the most recent comments. Click on a comment in order to see it in its entirety.


This footer contains a fun feature that is unique to Retirement Journeys and is called Rocky’s Corner. Rocky offers up words of wisdom and his own unique perspective on what life is like living with two retired people. Clicking on our photo to the right will take you to About Us.
