Now into our 31st year of financial independence, we have traveled and lived in numerous countries. We consider ourselves to be Global Ambassadors. Since retiring in 1991 and first living in Nevis, West Indies for six months, we sailed south on a Tall Ship to Grenada and then flew to Venezuela. We hung out on the beaches on Isla de Margarita and eventually made our way back to the States.

At that time we purchased a 28 ft. 5th wheel trailer and a tow vehicle, and slow traveled the Western US for a couple of years. It was then that we decided to do more international travel while we were young and flexible.

From Arizona we flew to Chapala, Mexico to stay for two months -- which unexpectedly turned into four years! We became involved in the local community teaching English as a Second Language and building sporting facilities. We had a nice rhythm of traveling back and forth from the States and Mexico when we decided to explore Asia. Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, China, Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines all were many month destinations which we are still visiting and exploring.

We did End of Life Care for our parents in the States and dropped into Ecuador for a few months, and drifted back through Mexico.

Feeling the love of the Latin Culture we made our way south along the Mexican Pacific Coast and into Guatemala and El Salvador. We definitely caught the bug of the Mayan culture and based numerous years out of Guatemala traveling to Belize, the Dominican Republic and Panama back to Vietnam and Thailand.

Always in search of that “One Particular Harbor” to settle down into we continue to learn from other travelers about new adventures to Saint Somewhere. Travelers love to share what they know, the places they've been, their recommendations, and tips. The world's a big place and there's always somewhere to go.

There are many ways to live a life and all of you have to find your own path. We can only provide an example of our experiences and travels during our three decades of slow, slow travel. You can do the same, setting an example of financial independence and creative lifestyle for others helping them to expand their lives. Hopefully we can meet up somewhere, someplace, sometime.

Where this all ends we haven’t a clue, but in the meanwhile we are doing our best to be Global Ambassadors and leaving places better than we found them. At 68 years young we’re still “truckin”!
