We are both RN’s with 36 years of Oncology nursing experience between us. We had a good job, security and great benefits BUT we decided to retire early without pay and travel by bicycle over the next few years or as long as we are having fun.
LIVE LIFE is the lesson I have learned over and over again in the last 8 years. The sudden death of my mom really got me thinking what do I want to do and how do I want to live. The answer was most definitely NOT work more, stress more, make more money, have more things, etc, etc.
The answer IS to seek out contentment by living simply, making time for fun, making good friends, stepping outside my comfort zone, embracing my family, and learning through adventure.
