This is an account of 2 conventional people in their fifties who decided to leave their comfortable lives to tackle new and exciting experiences before they were too old and decrepit to have adventures.
The children have grown up and left home and the parents are still managing independently.
Our 30 year careers were reasonably successful but the prospect of a further 15 years of the same was not inspiring, so we chose to change direction in our lives, drastically.
On this site you will find a journal or diary – not sure that it is a true blog – of our escapades. There is some background detail about how we came to find ourselves in this position with both practical advice and personal philosophical rhetoric.
It is our story: chalet hosting in the Alps, ranch-hands in Canada, stockmen in Australia (although not particularly accomplished riders) and rent-a-crew anywhere (preferably warm). The thoughts and opinions are our own musings. If you find them interesting, entertaining or even helpful we’ll be delighted. If we can provide any practical advice do get in touch (there may be delays in responding if we are off-grid). We are not life coaches, just regular people who want to try something different, before its too late
