    Default Retirement Dreams at 50

    I came across a caption with the heading to be completed in less than 50 words which reads:

    My retirement dreams when I reach 50 are .............

    and I wrote ......to own a splendid house that amazes everyone,to maintain a healthy lifestyle,travelling to enchanting places everywhere,being intellectually alive most of the time and maintaing a surplus account in my bank.

    Any corrections to improve the above.
    Thanks.

    In a listing of this kind, it is not necessary to continually use "to" in front of the verbs. Remember to put a space after a punctuation mark.
