Days Until We Move To Thailand
September 1, 2019
Sorry for the lack of updates over the last month. Getting our business affairs in order has been a tough, time consuming task! Starting the day after we retired we have been busy every day trying to get everything taking care of (business affairs, switching addresses, buying airline tickets, arranging accommodations in Thailand, meeting with family, friends and co-workers for lunch or dinner to just name a few).
We close out of our apartment on Aug 26th then fly to Tampa to spend our last week before flying to Thailand on September 1st.
Busch Gardens - Williamsburg, Virginia!
Spend the day visiting Brookgreen Gardens south of Murrells Inlet. Amazing 9,100-acres of themed botanical gardens, American sculptures and Lowcountry Zoo. A little pricey ($18 per person) but your ticket is good for 7 days!
Sunday, June 30, 2019
Normally on Sunday's we are busy preparing for the week ahead - doing laundry, going to grocery store, preparing lunch meals, etc. - then finish the day resting (watching Netflix).
Today, on this Sunday the 30th, we are packing and getting ready to head out on a last minute 4 day trip to Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island, South Carolina!
How do we define this last minute change of plans?
About UsOver the years we have learned that all the wants, desires and “American” dreams that most people wish for ended up not living up to our grand expectations. We were very fortunate to be able to achieve the things that we had always wanted and dreamed about. But yet, once we got there we realized that we wanted more.
After all that is the American way right?...
Find Out About Our 3 Year Plan to Retire Early and Move to Thailand
We spent most of 2016 through summer 2017 getting rid of all our possessions. We went ahead moved into a small apartment in July, 2017. This made it easy to spend the summer of 2017 getting our house ready to sell. We were able to get it put on the market right before our December 2017 trip to Thailand. We actually got an offer while we were in Thailand and eventually closed in February 2018.
It's been a long and hard couple years getting ready but it's been worth it. It now feels good having all of that behind us. Adjusting to apartment life
