Introductory and learning

First post (have mercy, I’m learning)

Hello all! After days of hesitation I’m finally putting the proverbial pen to paper. The goal of this blog is to share my wife Karens’ and my own experiences as we prepare for retirement and a lifestyle of living in foreign destinations.

The plan is to include lots of photographs, some video, and moderately politically correct comments on both. As well as thoughts and experiences as we move into this exciting phase of our lives.

We have done some travelling previously and our current preference is San Pedro, Belize.

Welcome to our travel blog. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to say, "I'm out of here?" Well we did, and in 2013 we made it a reality. We sold or gave away all of our possessions other than what fit in our luggage and we set off on an endless adventure. Part of our goal is to share our experiences with others and hopefully provide some information, motivation, or just a moments escape. The general idea was to look for a place that would be ideal to settle down in. However in the meantime it is about experiencing life in different countries amongst different cultures and learning how to understand and appreciate each other. A large part of our time is spent housesitting which provides an excellent opportunity to experience more of the "normal" neighbourhoods as opposed to the tourist locales. Though we make sure to enjoy those as well. So through plenty of photographs and a running commentary come and share with us our life on the road.

    Glad to see you’re having such a great time! I like the picture of the sharks…very appropriate, since, like a blog, if they stop moving forward they die. Stay safe and have fun.
