Have a personal trainer, go to school, travel, spend time at the pool, eat well, read, drink fabulous wine, and try new things.

I'd spend it three ways

-Traveling

-Volunteering

-Doing things I don't have time to do now - learn to speak a foreign language, learn the violin, learn how to scuba dive, take yoga, improve my cooking and knitting skills, read a LOT, write, plant a garden, get my pup involved in dog agility

I'd tell my sweet husband he could retire immediately.

Then we'd move to Western Europe and live in various countries for weeks or months at a time, eating good food, riding bikes, learning new languages, and taking photographs. I'd study architecture and history as I went along and force myself to be a better and more consistent writer.

I would still work and also volunteer at least part time, especially helping at risk kids. I would also open my own business, which more than likely would be personal training and my wife would open a BnB. The other half would be travelling and working out at the boxing gym with the intent of competing and taking some language classes.

I need some structure in my life..I can't just envision myself not having any despite even if we became financially independent. The bright side is that I don't need to rely on a "I hope I get this pot of gold" to start realizing some of these goals..I'm actually starting some of them now.

I would do more volunteer work especially with animals because I just love that! I would of course go to lunch lots and shop on a more regular basis as well.

Probably not much different to now - more vacations, better car, - buy some interesting businesses and investments.

And probably post on city data!
