    I'm setting off from London in two week's time to get to the 2019 WSOP. I was offered the opportunity to retire early from work and, having just hit my 59th birthday, I leapt at the chance. This means that I've been able to fulfil a long held ambition to travel around the world.

    My wife and I are heading to Vegas by going south, then east, hitting South Africa, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina and Mexico before arriving in Boston next April. From there, we have an epic road trip planned to get to Vegas in early to mid June for the Series. Timing will be finalised once the schedule is announced.

    If there's an opportunity to play some poker en route, I'll take it, but bankroll management requires us to make sure we have enough to enjoy WSOP.

    I'll update the thread from time to time with progress, and deliver extracts from my blog, worldafterwork.com

    See you in June.

    Bri

    That sounds amazing Bri - can't wait to hear about this, and hopefully experience the entire journey (not just Vegas). I hope to be in a similar position as I approach retirement as well. Safe travels, looking forward to hearing and seeing more. And I may see you in Vegas :)

    Wow! As TRN said, please keep us posted as you can on your travels. Did I say, "WOW!"

    This should have some epic updates.

    I lived in Japan for 2.5 years and loved it.

    Enjoy the world tour.
