You can't wait to start crossing things off your bucket list—even if it means traveling across the globe to have those unique experiences. Retirement is your chance to have all the adventures you put on hold during your working years. This will require proper planning—and savings. Work with your Athene financial professional and answer these important questions.
Do you know which destinations you want to travel to in retirement?
The world is your playground, so where will you go? It's exciting to learn about different cultures, experience exotic landscapes and try unique cuisine. If you plan to travel to foreign lands, study up on the customs, laws . . . and cost of living.
Do you need additional savings to fund your travel or experiences?
Traveling can be quite expensive. Make sure you are well prepared financially before you embark on these great adventures.
Is there a location that would serve as an ideal home base for your adventures?
Do you prefer the beach, the mountains, city or country? Do you want to be near an airport? Wherever your adventures take you, it's good to have a home base that puts your interests within reach. This may require you to move depending on your situation.
Who will you be sharing these experiences with?
It's important to be on the same page and plan ahead with friends and family who share your interests. Make sure you are prepared financially (and physically) for your many exciting adventures.

Once you have a clear picture of what you want, you’ll be ready to build your plan.
