Couples Travel–There's nothing quite like exploring the world with your significant other, though it has its challenges.
A glass of Merlot and a sailing challenge
It all began with an invitation to do a road trip along the east coast of the United States. When we finally met in person we didn’t expect our existing work friendship to spark an automatic connection. He poured me a glass of Obscura Merlot while we talked about life and then... the challenge had begun. He suggested getting on the road in search of the perfect sailboat to purchase and sail along the East coast of the United States
Before Siri, I Was the Only One Telling Randy Were to Go
Our daughters claim they never heard us argue when they were children - unless we were traveling. I remember those days. Randy would be driving the 32-foot motorhome and I would navigate, or at least trying to because, as some of you know, I am directionally challenged. Maps and I don't get a long very well. These were the days before GPS and Google Maps. The only person telling my husband were to go was me and sometimes it wasn't in a sweet voice like Alexa.
There is a calm sense of serenity even amidst endless chaos. Staring directly into the eye of the storm, arms spread wide like an eagle ready to soar, not to be blown away. For to survive in this world you must embrace the chaos or else be entirely consumed.

Tacos in Tulum
Recently my wife and I ventured to Tulum, Mexico to celebrate my retirement from the United States Navy after 24 years of service as a Deep Sea Diver. With CoViD restrictions lifting and the pandemic seemingly in retreat we also have missed our routine of traveling annually with the lock-downs and strict orders from the Navy not to travel further than 300 miles radius from my command; this was also a trip to stretch our worldly legs again, and rid ourselves of some cabin-fever. Returning to the United States does still require some CoViD testing procedures that can induce stress into what is supposed to be a time for relaxation and no worries; However, that's for a different story all together.
We Carry Business Cards When Traveling: RVing in Retirement
Retirement requires an attitude adjustment. I’ve had to teach myself that it is OK to not feel stressed, overworked, and continually striving to complete a task.
Travel Builds Strength to Confront What Waits at Home
My husband and I drove out of the driveway as we started our month-long adventure. Though the awareness that our responsibilities were limited while traveling through the mountains, deserts, and small towns, we kept our phones within reach knowing reception was limited. We expected to have limited contact with the outside world knowing in the event of a real emergency, we could be found. The phones worked more as cameras on our trip. When we exited the city limits, our bodies screamed for time to shut down and reboot.
Getting evicted in the Wild, Wild West that is the Mexican Jungle
My partner and I believe in community. To us, it's the most intelligent and compassionate way forward and it's our intention to get a headstart on creating what we believe everyone will eventually be looking for soon - a village, a family, a sanctuary. We arrived at our AirBNB in Puerto Morelos, Mexico and we said, "This could be it!" My partner saying that explicitly, and me saying it quietly to myself. We were wrong, and we were right.
We Drive, Golf, Drink a Beer then Repeat - RVing in Retirement
My husband introduced me to golf anticipating as we aged a stroll over grassy greens on a warm summer day would provide relaxation and recreation. When traveling to a new location, we investigate the golf options and book a tee time for the following day. It provides exercise as we enjoy nature at our temporary home. I love the sport but will admit, learning pushed the limits of our marriage.
My First Date With My Lovely Girlfriend
Relationships are very complicated, but worthwhile. Long distance relationships are even more complicated, but probably are becoming much more common as people spend more time meeting others online. I happen to be in a very long distance relationship, and I spend a lot of time thinking about how things will go when we finally meet in person. This story is a work of fiction, but only for now hopefully.

Learning to Drive The Beast in Rush Hour Traffic: RVing in Retirement
My husband needed relief. We traveled for several hours but knowing only 20 minutes remained, we powered through. As we entered the Palm Springs area in California, the traffic became heavier. The word congestion began to gain new meaning as we noticed the clock on the dash announced 4:30, and it was Friday. It felt like we were in a holiday parade moving at the pace of a horse drawn carriage with a one-legged horse. Only the majority of the time we were not moving at all. The break Randy desperately needed didn’t seem like a possibility, but waiting was an impossibility.
