There is no such thing as Golden Years !! I watched my in-laws work their entire live and save their money only to suffer with poor health in retirement and then pass away. Life is short, if you have the money.......... Enjoy life as you can, save what you can for retirement BUT the golden years are now when you have good health to travel. RELAXATION- is this is a joke.... Most seniors are suffering with Medicare expenses and no ways to pay for their meds.

Enjoy eating cans of cat food in your retirement years then! I know people who are a stark contrast from your description and are living to the fullest, are healthy AND traveling to see their grand children, even providing hours of service to favorite causes. Live life to it's fullest, yes, but keep on doing it until the end!
