Our story!

For several years now I have had the urge to travel which has been a dream of mine before marriage and children. My husband was never keen on the idea until one afternoon in 2016 he said, "let's do this!" The next day I began to sell, donate and give away items from my home. He was a bit shocked when he got home from work. I immediately called a realtor and our home sold within 24 hours for more than we were asking. I had sold, donated and given away EVERYTHING so that the day we moved we didn't even need a truck. We were able to drive away with everything we had left in both our vehicles. We moved to a smaller place directly across from the beach to enjoy the sunrise and sunsets for the following year before taking off to travel full time!

Living with the “What If's!”

When people find out we don't plan to buy another home and living full time on the road we get all the "what if's!" Those same "what if's" usually can apply even if we planned to live another 30 years in another home. If we took the time to worry over the "what if's" our anxiety levels would rise and that alone could kill us.

Fortunately, we do plan to settle down from time to time in an area such as Spain. The cost there is so much less than here and would allow us to travel other countries in the same way we are able to travel in the United States. Our last trip to Spain was so affordable we had enough spending money left over from our trip that we could have brought our kids and grandkids with us.

The trip to Spain gave us a lot of momentum to continue on this path. It has been fun to watch my husband be as excited as I am about our plans to collect moments not things!
