In the years before relaxing into a complete retirement, many of us find ourselves daydreaming of holidays, travel, adventure – you name it, at some point we all just want to escape! Even once retirement is in full swing, it can be hard to fully delay to-do lists and various commitments for a full-blown getaway. The solution may be to take ‘micro-adventures’, for 1 or 2 days closer to home. For example, driving to a high point in a national park near your home, locking your bike then driving to a connecting trailhead, hiking up to the bike and coasting back to the car for a full day of outdoor exercise. Various similar combinations may involve camping and can be tailored to your stamina level and comfort in the great outdoors.
