At home Jun 24, 2007

By then I hope I have done all the traveling, so I'll stay home

country house Jun 24, 2007

I vote for a house in the country, with horses, sheep and a garden with all the vegetables that will go in my soup.

It´s good to think about these options !

I missed the option of being a doting grandparent.

So, It isn't just me! Jun 24, 2007

Good to know that the majority went for traveling.

I believe that we, translators, spend a LOT of time in a confined space, interacting with machines, buttons and walls. No wonder we crave for traveling, exploring and seeing "PEOPLE".

Traveling is the best option. Jun 24, 2007

For me, travelling would be the best option...
If only I could do it now...I'm thinking about buying a notebook, since our work allows us to do it anywhere...

What about translating while going on a safary trip?, or proofreading while surfing the Pacific Ocean?

Too much work turns me a little crazy, don't you think?
I think I should get in touch with people more often...this "Lobo Estepario" mood...ja ja.

Have a nice weekend.

Definitely traveling! Jun 24, 2007

But not just when we retire. We want to travel NOW! Maybe next year we're traveling to England, Spain and France to visit family and friends.

Have a nice weekend!

NA Jun 24, 2007

As usual the poll does not enable the answer one would like to give.

I say yes to all, and I already have all those options except the Nursing Home...

...where I hope I never end up.

...meaning at home, wherever it may be, AND traveling.

I wonder who has voted for "nursing home"! And why??

A mix Jun 24, 2007

Doing any one thing to the exclusion of all others sounds depressing.

I voted that I will not retire Jun 24, 2007

However, when I am old, I would like to work only days, and not nights as well - possibly also only 5-6 days per week.
