I decided to create this blog so that I could share my journey into an enjoyable, constructive and healthy retirement. In order to retire, I moved to the beautiful Isle of Wight from Surrey (downsizing our home allowed this to happen).

I try to gain the utmost out of all the natural beauty and scenery I’m surrounded by.  Achieving this by regularly swimming in the sea and hiking along the hills, downs and cliffs on the Island. Also by following a low carb high fat diet known as a ketogenic diet.

My hope is to maintain my health and fitness into a thriving old age.
