That's where the gifts are .... on the other side of fear.  If you're looking for inspiration and motivation to take you forward through retirement, or you're thinking of becoming a grey nomad like me, then you're in the right place.

Grey Nomad - Solo Woman Van Life

Grey nomad life is growing in popularity, and women over 50 are the biggest group to join the ranks. The reasons for choosing a solo van life in retirement are many. For some, it's a solution to homelessness. For others, it's the purposeful seeking of a new way of living in retirement - often following divorce, widow-hood, and empty-nester syndrome. Solo women face many challenges alongside a sense of accomplishment, independence, and proving to themselves that being older is not a setback.   So if you're considering taking this step to solo van life, watch this space, as I venture into the wild, interviewing solo women travellers. You'll learn why they began their journey to van life, how they navigate the ups and downs, practical tips for van design, staying safe .....  And so much more!
