What’s this all about? I guess we’ll continue to figure that out together.


Here’s the thing… I left the corporate world in 2015 — earlier than most. After many years of planning and saving, I pulled the plug and shifted gears into something more resembling retirement.

Since I’m a bit young for that, I’m calling this chapter an indefinite sabbatical from full-time work.

I’ve grown comfortable being the boss of me. More weekend, less work-week.

Anyone who knows me and my partner knows we love to travel.

It’s less about getting to new places and more about taking in all that a new location has to offer — be it a weekend or months in the same place.

Although we never have more than a couple of months planned out at a time, our goal is to minimize the number of snowy months we endure in Canadian winters.

I’ve picked up a few travel-planning tips over the years and I’ll reveal those in good time.

And what’s a blog without visuals? I’ll continue to post the occasional photo and video, too.

This will evolve into more than a typical travel blog, since we plan to relocate to new places for months at a time. Our hope is that we experience more of life in an area as locals rather than as tourists.
