In Working My Way through Retirement, author Lola Albion finds that retirement has many surprises and totally unexpected opportunities in store for her. She shares her unique trek in a series of e-mails written to family and friends from locations throughout the world over a period of nearly eight years. Her travels spanned far and wide, with her messages relayed from places as diverse as Doomadgee, an Aboriginal community in remote Australia; Labrador on the Atlantic edge of Canada; Montenegro in the Balkans; Tanna in the Pacific; Qatar in the Middle East; Italy; Jordan; and Cambodia. Albion shares her extraordinary experiences with a great deal of humour, gentleness, and wise insight into the human condition. She also considers themes of change, ageing, the universality of human hopes and dreams, and the wonder of the world and its people throughout.
