In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age
of 38. Now, into their 4th decade of this

Dreaming about the future
is vital to Life
We are approaching 70 years young and still
have a thirst for adventure.
Hiking up to the that lookout
or riding the biggest wave in the set is no longer the thrill it once was.
However, we still get juiced up looking at maps of interesting destinations and
cultures, even if we have traveled there before. While we've never had a "bucket
list" per se, we do have various countries we plan to visit before too long.
Curiosity still has the magic
to pull us forward, and this adds sparkle to our eyes and vitality to our lives.
Tweaking our travel style
for more comfort
Today we want more comfort
in general and are willing to pay for it.
A recent example, is when we revisited
Guanajuato, Mexico and hired a driver to take us directly to our Hotel San Diego (8500 Pesos
for six nights, about $425USD). He returned to pick us up 7 days later. We could have taken the
bus, using up a full travel day each way at lesser costs. Instead we opted for
the 3.5-hour trip in an air-conditioned car paying 3500 Pesos one way (about $175USD).
This gave us more room and a

Emphasizing value for
We used to have more time
than money so we would take less costly transportation and housing to economize
both. In this way we saved for our "someday." Today, that someday is here. We are seeing that we have more money than time and are beginning
the distribution phase of our accounts.
Our focus is to maximize
these years, and still emphasize value for money spent.
We could have eaten
street food in
Guanajuato, as we have done all over the globe! And
has some of the finest food stalls in the world. But being foodies and
previous restaurant owners, we went to this fine city
for the cuisine.
And we found it.
At an Avant-garde restaurant
called Mestizo, we ordered Pork Chop in White Mole sauce
which was intriguing.
We understand that our
passionate devotion for food isn't for everyone. However for us, eating something new that
we had never tried before was a thrill and the taste was delectable.

Dancing through Life to our
unique drummers, we like keeping this chosen lifestyle
fluid. And it suits us so well.
Of course we have daily
patterns, but we are open to new experiences and meeting new people. We have
friends and acquaintances of various ages who prefer to keep to the known. It's
less demanding and - perhaps - less upsetting. For us, we lean towards the
novel and untried, expanding our lives.
