Have you ever visited a destination and wished you had more time? Or vacationed in a place you really wanted to make your home? That was us! For so long, my husband and I imagined what it would be like to spend more than the typical two-week vacation in one of our favorite destinations. Well, that day came! To commemorate my husband’s retirement, we’ve made the decision to spend two glorious months living like locals in Italy and France. We are doing it! We are living our dreams and so can you.
For us, Italy has long been our special place. It was where we spent our honeymoon and where we left a piece of us. France has been on our bucket list for too long, and since we’re planning our dream vacation, why not check it off our list. We will now have the time we need to explore at our own pace, visit various surrounding cities and towns immersing ourselves in the different cultures, and finally not need a vacation from a vacation.
Throughout this blog, you’ll journey with us as we live among the locals in both Florence, Italy and Paris, France while exploring the surrounding regions and uncovering all the hidden gems. You are in for an absolute treat!
What is the Retirement Travel Life?
Well, we are taking the quick one to the two-week vacations of the past and creating living like a local tourist. So long to the days of arriving in a city, with little time to acclimate to the destination before starting to venture out to your list of must-see tourist attractions. The Retirement Travel Life goes at a pace of your choosing, because you get to decide how each day will go based on how you feel that day. This trip should be a minimum of a month to a maximum of however long you want to live like a local. The possibilities are endless when you learn how to structure your adventure using my plan for you.
