Kaua'i Sunset

Welcome to my misfit travel blog

Me with a drink in Kauai

I’ve worked in the healthcare industry as a Medical Technologist for almost 20 years, and now it’s time for a change. After dealing with two years of COVID craziness, I’m burnt out. I truly love the tropics so I am going to head there first.

For all of you who know me, you know I love Adventures. This gets me into trouble sometimes, but it all seems to work itself out in the end. I really should get an Insta account just for all my injury photos! Maybe someday. Wish me luck!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I afford to retire now?

No kids! The child-free lifestyle is the best!

What did you do with all your stuff?

I sold some stuff but mostly I gave the rest to friends or charities. I am traveling with one checked bag plus one carry-on. I am keeping some warm-weather items at a parents’ house for when I come visit. They will have to pick me up at the airport with a jacket!

Are you really not coming back?

Nope. I will come visit friends and family, and maybe for medical checkups, but I will not be moving back.

What’s the plan?

The plan is to become a truly global citizen. I want to check out countries in Central America first to see which areas I like, and then maybe cruise over to Southern Europe and check out a few Asian countries. There are so many places I’ve only read about and want to experience. One country to the next, riding out my visa until I have to leave for my next Adventure!
