Hello! I am a retired teacher and Joe is a retired manager. When we first got married we made a plan to travel as much as possible. We have been living that dream by first traveling with our two daughters and now traveling as a couple. I plan to write about our past travels when we are not on the road. I hope you enjoy our experiences!
