We are Cindy and Theo, entering retirement, and looking forward to the adventures that await us.
As many of you know, we have been dreaming of living as expats for some time now. Cindy closed her residential interior design and home staging business in 2012 and is our main location researcher and expedition planner! Theo is soon to be retired from many years in hi-tech.
Theo grew up in Germany, and has worked in many of the world’s capitals, but has always had a wayward bent. He came to San Francisco with almost nothing in his pocket as a manager at Phillips over 35 years ago and has never looked back. Coming to America was a dream of his that he made happen. But Theo is most comfortable with people and places nearby.
Cindy, on the other hand, is a country girl from the sticks in Colorado and quickly moved away from the snow and ice after graduating from college in 1985. She had not travelled the globe, but always longed for more. Being an art and architecture major, she has always felt the pull to experience Europe first hand.
And here we are now, globetrotting around to find the perfect places that we’d like to spend significant time in our retirement years. Even though we’re starting this blog rather late in our quest, we will catch you up in posts to come…
Join us on our joyful search!
