From here to God knows where.

The mission

In May 2017 I finished up with a business, I part owned.  Since then I have discovered how difficult it is for a person over 50 years of age to get meaningful employment despite years of experience.

I could moan and complain, but I have decided to try to get control of my destiny from now on.


I am going to pack my bags and relocate to Sofia Bulgaria.   During this new adventure, I am going to blog about my experience.

I am not going to climb a mountain.  Swim an ocean.  Live with wolves or jump from a plane.

I would like the blog to be about a regular over 50s guy settling into for what will be a new life.

I would hope to show people that despite the world seemingly taking an inward step it is possible to move to another country. Experience a new culture and at the end of the day, most people in most counties are decent.

The highs and lows.   The ups and downs or real life with a bit of humour included.

Join me on my journey.

    Alan Wicker reincarnated! Sounds like a blast and fair play for now laying down. Us over 50’s have a lot to offer. Looking forward to being part of your trip.
