Five years ago, John and I started talking about retiring overseas. You know what it's like: the newspapers are full of horror stories illustrating how the country is going downhill; we have a typically British rain-sodden summer; prices are rising all the time; there is a tube strike so the dreadful journey to work gets even worse - it's time to get out of here! I'm sure that strikes a chord with many people, but in our case it wasn't just talk, as we made the decision to buy what seemed to be our dream home in Santa Ana del Monte, just outside the Spanish town of Jumilla, which is famous for its wine. John and I thought that the best aspect of living in Jumilla would be the wine, or perhaps the sunshine, or the relaxed way of life, however we quickly discovered that it is the people. Jumillanos are friendly and welcoming, and although we have only been living here a few months, whenever we walk around the town somebody recognises us and says 'Hola', 'Buenos dias' or even (especially the children) 'Hello'. "Retiring The Ole Way" is the intimate, honest and inspiring story of Sue and John Walker's move from the hustle-and-bustle of London to their new home in rural Southern Spain. It makes entertaining and informative reading for anyone wishing to enjoy an active retirement in the sun. Sue Walker was born in Newcastle upon Tyne and spent her childhood in Canada, Norfolk and Lincolnshire. She joined the WRNS when she left school to travel and played hockey and indoor football while serving. Sue took up running after marrying for the first time and having a family because she decided it was a cheap and easy sport for a busy mother of three. After careers in IT and Personnel Sue trained and now works as a complementary therapist. This book chronicles Sue's adventures with her husband John as they set about to enjoy an active retirement in south-east Spain.
