Plan Wisely | Retire Well | Travel on Your Terms
- Who decides when the pandemic is over?
- Searching for your ID at the airport – soon to be a thing of the past
- This is what it’s like to live on a cruise ship full time
- Is retirement financial suicide?
The pandemic is over. How can I say this so confidently? Historians of the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic emphasize that “People, Not Science, Decide When a Pandemic Is Over.” And the people have spoken.
How? Carnival Cruises announced that “the one-week period of March 28-April 3 was its busiest booking week in the company’s history.” Not the busiest week this year. Not the busiest week since the pandemic began. The busiest week ever.
I didn’t write this to get into politics or the science behind COVID. I just wanted to let readers know that travel is coming back with a vengeance. If you feel safe traveling and booking a trip is on your to-do list, don’t wait. Prices are on the rise, and availability is dwindling. Good luck out there, and safe travels!
One of the best “places-to-retire” articles I’ve come across. International Travel’s 2022 top ten places to retire is out! The analyst in me greatly appreciates their numerical process of crowning a winner.
Retirement = financial suicide? You’d think that there would be a way to avoid this, like hiring a professional to help…hmm.
Should you change your investment strategy because of the war in Ukraine? Invest for the long-term and don’t think about the news.
I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this – an Asian food hall is coming to Pittsburgh’s strip district and will feature seven food stalls.
