This yes. I wont want to travel aimlessly abroad when Im in my 70's. I would imagine MOST of my travel time will be going to see my kids/grandkids. Absolutely travel now within reason. I really wish I would have done more in my 20's but... didn't really work out that way. We aren't toy people either really. Doesn't mean we dont want to though! . We adopted the experiences over things philosophy the last 10 years or so. The kids wont be at home forever so we really want to have the bonding time.This is something I've always wondered about. So you're looking to really live it up when you're in your 70s? Do you know people in their 70s?
There has to be a balance. I'm not big on buying toys I can't afford, but would you rather take that expensive trip when you're 30-50 or 70? That's an easy choice to me.
Boomers love the idea of playing 9 holes in the morning and sipping pina coladas with their wrinkly wives in Arizona until they die. It's a weird ideal.
