In this episode of Rewirement, Angellica chats to two inspiring retirees who took the opportunity of retirement to pack up and find somewhere new to call home. Jennifer took to the water when she stopped working, while Tina jetted off to live in sunny Spain – although, as she learnt, that isn’t always the case!

When Jennifer and her husband retired, they sold their Hertfordshire home and bought a narrowboat to live on. Jennifer explains how with careful planning their retirement income allows them to enjoy an active life on the water.

For many of us, moving abroad is the retirement dream. Angellica has an honest conversation with Tina, who shares the highs and lows of living in Spain. From healthcare to learning the language and adjusting to a new culture, she shares valuable tips on living abroad in later life.

Angellica is also joined by Celia Dodd, author of Not Fade Away: How to Thrive in Retirement, and Legal & General’s Andrew Kail. They’ll help cover off your checklist for relocating in retirement, from doing your practical research and making sure you’re prepared emotionally and financially for any extra costs a new location may bring. If you’re considering calling somewhere new ‘home’, this episode is packed with wise words, suggestions and inspiration.
