I can't. I can't. I'm trying to choke myself to death but I can't stop.

....and Bermuda in Spring and Fall, and when bored with summers in previously destinations there was always Zurich, London, Munich, Glasgow with my golf clubs, and my all time favorite, Brussels. Caveat, BRU is my biggee because I met so many fantastic people there and still contact them (thank you Internet) often. It's numero uno on my European spots to revisit.

I lucked out, right place, right time. The opportunity will never be repeated.

"Imagine" this, John Lennon, Belgian chocolates, practically free, high end liqueirs for ten bucks a bottle at the duty free shops, 20 bucks for Scottish single malts, linens, French copper cookery, Barolos from Milano wine shops - and on and on and on.

Do I miss it? Who wouldn't? Funny thing is, my wife and I have been retired for five years and other than a few Euro trips, mostly for Scottish golf, we spend our airline time traveling to see friends and relatives. I don't believe we're burned out. It's just that our priorities have changed.

I truly hope all of you can travel a lot throughout your lives. It's an education impossible to obtain academically.

I have been to all the states west of the Mississippi River except Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. Also Alaska and Hawaii, never been there either. I have been all over the South, and Midwest but not the North Eastern states.
I have been to Canada... that is it. No other foreign country to date. Top of our list is Thailand, Scotland, and Ireland. Then the Mediterranean area.

Wait, what was the thread topic?? LOL. I don't have a job right now :( I have been on SSD for three years, went onto the back to work program last year, then thunk! Back down again...grrrr. But, I do have to admit that I did like installing gardens, and doing the hardscaping... but not weeding!!!!!
My preferred job, before the fall, was Help Desk, but anything dealing with problem solving and computers trips my triggers.

DW does love her job. But since she is on here now, I can let her speak for herself!

Hey, expat. Check out "Mav's wife" in the Members List. She also goes under the alias of "Serena." Good people just like Maverick. Look into "Intros and Birthdays," too.
