Saw a quote not long ago (do not remember the author), “Don’t replace your dreams with regrets”. I have known people in the twilight of their lives who, unless you see them face to face, you would not know they were “old”. The difference? They still have dreams, plans, and goals. I want to be that person in my retirement.
We sold our fifth wheel RV a few weeks ago. Do we regret living the RV lifestyle or giving it up? Not one bit. The carefree lifestyle of traveling in our home full-time and seeing new places and people was fantastic. We lived it for two years and enjoyed every minute. That’s why I started this blog to describe the life and keep a journal of our travels. When we switched it up a bit by buying a “sticks and stone” home in 2011 on the Olympic Peninsula and traveled in the winter to a warmer climate (the Southwest), we found the snowbird lifestyle in an RV didn’t suit us. Different plans and dreams are waiting for us. Time to move on.
Looking forward to many, many years of new adventures. Traveling in the U.S., overseas, and aboard. Not only abroad, aboard! Boating (and fishing) here in Puget Sound, the Strait, and Canadian waters is phenomenal in this part of the world. It is right out our back door!
And maybe when the traveling and boating have played out, we will just…I don’t know…maybe move overseas! Sail the ocean blue. Mix with the natives on the island of Yak. Only dreams, no regrets.
