55. Retiring Abroad with Gwen Benson-Walker


 

Episode 55:


Meet Gwen

At 68 and single, my children all grown up and living their own lives with children of their own, what was next? Not feeling lonely but feeling unnecessary. I needed a change. A new challenge. What better challenge than moving to a country where you don’t know the language.


I grabbed my music and my dance shoes and headed to Barcelona. I knew one thing, if I didn’t like living in Barcelona I could go live anywhere. 5 years later I still wake up some mornings pinching myself to make sure I am not dreaming about living in Spain.

Being a people person I have been able to meet so many people from all over the world.
