Living Our lives at Our Chosen Pace

Always Dreaming

Dreaming about the future is vital to Life

We are approaching 71 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 quieter ride.

Emphasizing value for money spent

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 Mexico 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.

How many people have had White Mole?

When we came home, we quickly looked up recipes to make this unique sauce, and can't wait to share with friends.

You are only old if you think you are

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.

We haven't achieved all of our dreams just yet.

Even though we are in our seventh decade and perhaps slowing down a little physically, we continue to challenge ourselves.

It feels sweet not having to prove anything to anyone. We have the comfort of living our lives at our pace.

We dreamt of Early Retirement and made it happen thirty plus years ago. We continue to dream and to dream big. Long ago we learned the cost of dreaming big is the same as dreaming small.

The cost of not dreaming at all is tragic.

So, go for it!

Don't let anyone steal your dreams!

Who knows? You might just achieve them!
