January 14th, 2010 starts our 20th year of retirement.


Sometimes we look back and question our decision to retire early...for about half a minute. Once that fleeting thought has left our heads we either look forward to our next adventure or back at the all the places and experiences we have had through these last two decades. Gratitude wells up for all we have seen and shared with others. At age 57 we are not getting any younger.  Today we have more aches and pains than we did twenty years ago and the recovery from them seems slower. Still, the wanderlust and curiosity that started it all is alive and well.


Basing ourselves in Chapala, Mexico, riding out the economic uncertainties, this location has been our travel hub. Already in our next adventure, we are slowly moving down the Pacific coast of Mexico, using water therapy (a.k.a. body surfing) to sooth our bodies and souls. From here we plan to travel into Guatemala and Belize before re-entering Mexico via the Yucatan and finally returning to Chapala.

We expect this trip, moving at a snailís pace, to take the better part of three months. Youíre welcome to join us at any location along the way, and who knows? We may set up another base somewhere that we have yet to discover and stay longer.


If you are interested in joining our journey, drop us a line and we will coordinate our travel with yours and give you the information necessary to make the connection.

When this trip is completed, our plans are to return to the States and re-pack for an extended stay in Asia. At least that's the way we see it today.

After 20 years of wandering the globe, searching for the perfect taco in Mexico, jerk chicken on Nevis, West Indies, or the best massage in Thailand, we are still together and going strong. That in itself is worth celebrating!

All of our books lead to adventure. Don't miss out on yours!

You, as our readers, mean a great deal to us. Hearing from you and meeting you has been a real thrill and a terrific exchange.

Thank you for your continued support and well wishes. We encourage you to follow your dreams no matter how many people tell you it's impossible. We wouldn't be where we are today, if we believed the naysayers. Be flexible if you must in the description of your goals, and keep moving forward.
