Over the past few days, the retired MLB player, who will turn 46 on Tuesday, has been sharing photos while spending time in Europe.

"​​Let the festivities begin 🛥 #EuroTrip," he captioned one smiling waterfront picture. Meanwhile alongside another snap, which showed him hanging out on a boat with pals, he simply wrote "peace."

Earlier this week, the NBA formally approved Rodriguez and tech entrepreneur Marc Lore's purchase of the Timberwolves.

"It's official. Marc Lore and I are so excited to begin a new chapter with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx," Rodriguez wrote in a celebratory social media post. "Today is a historic day for my family and me. After growing up witnessing my mother work two jobs, I never dreamed this would be possible."

During his time abroad, Rodriguez also shared a video with his fans, noting how great it felt to be taking it easy.

"It feels so good to finally sit still. I've been going hard for a long time," he said in a series of clips posted to his Instagram Story Thursday. "It's good to stop and pause and appreciate. I just want to say thank you to all of you out there who have sent beautiful messages, flowers, congrats. I appreciate you."
