We have always believed in the old saying that we must 'live life to the fullest' and we are here to do just that. Our retirement blog:  "Check this off our Bucket List" serves as a vessel to share our vast interests, and clue our readers into what inspires us in this ever-changing world.

The 'GO-GO' Years!

We have been told that the 60's are the 'GO-GO' years, the 70's are the 'GO SLOW' years and the 80's are the 'NO GO' while we're in our 60's we are going! Going big, or going home, on a bucket-list, adventures!  Having finished our 4.5 month world cruise in May of 2023, we are embarking on new adventures which will take us to many places we have always wanted to visit.  Some will be local, others International, but we will be going and knocking things off our bucket list while we’re still young and able!

Alaska and Christmas markets in Europe

After returning from our 2022/2023 World Cruise in May and spending the summer at home in Fort Erie, we now have  more fantastic adventures planned before we settle into 'snowbird' life in Plant City, Florida for the winter.  
Our first adventure is on the Norwegian Encore for a 7 night Alaskan cruise!  Christmas will bring even more adventures in Europe on the Viking Bragi longship from Budapest to Amsterdam enjoying the Christmas markets along the way.  We are in the planning stages for more exciting destinations in 2024 so stay tuned to see what we are doing!
