Encore Career At 79!

by Bernard Kelly
(Geelong, Australia)

Hello Wendy


When we moved to Geelong ten years ago - in anticipation of retirement - for the first two years my wife and I went to a different outdoor event every weekend.

We went to the schoolgirls rowing on the Barwon River, we visited the carbon fibre plant at Deakin University, we walked the bollard trail along the foreshore.

So I wrote a book "Exciting Dynamic Geelong" and now, in anticipation of a long retirement still ahead of me, I returned to that book and have created a bus tour company - using my own auto.

I advertise in the local tourist magazine, and passengers click on a QR code and purchase a ticket.

It's very stimulating and is a very profitable hobby.

cheers for now

Bernard Kelly
