Having left his high-pressure position in a mining company in South Africa, Jack Taylor, 53, was looking forward to his retirement. He pictured himself living on a golf estate, enjoying a relaxed and comfortable lifestyle. “I went to an estate on Bribie Island in Queensland and it was terrific,” says Jack, “but I felt about 15-20 years too young.
