In 2011, we sold our charming house in Central California’s wine country, gave away the furniture, and stuffed our art, clothes and small treasures into a 10 x 15 storage unit. We said goodbye to our surprised children and quizzical friends and now we live in rented apartments and houses internationally, putting down new roots one country at a time.
We have no property taxes, roof repairs or home insurance, so all of our spendable income is used to fund our new way of life. We do have small suitcases, an appetite for new experiences, good computers, and the savvy and flexibility to make ourselves at home in almost any situation.
We have lived in Mexico, Argentina. Turkey, France, Italy, England, and are currently in Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland. We visited Marrakech and sailed home for the holidays.
In February we sailed back to Europe and spent March in Portugal. April we wrote and storm-watched in remote, lovely Kenmare, Ireland. We spent three months in Paris, still writing, but eating and cooking like upscale gypsies! Then it was on to Berlin, where the German people made us feel as if we were family. We are now living in East Molesey, Sussex, UK, right along the river Thames. Please sign in for our email and we’ll let you know every time we tell a new part of our story.
