The Cost of Traveling the World (December 2013)

New Years Eve in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

New Years Eve in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

A number of things came to pass when the church bells struck the midnight hour on December 31st, much of its significance temporarily set aside amid the spirited revelry.  We found ourselves facing a new year afresh, full of opportunity and potential.  What adventures will 2014 hold?  What will we make of life & love in the coming year?

Most significantly, midnight marked the 1st full year of our early retirement and world travel.  We have learned much and find ourselves happier, refreshed, and ready for more.  The final days of our stay in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico are upon us, pressing us out into the world once more.  We will remain here a few more days before heading to Mexico City and then Cuba.  As 2013 has faded away so too must the embargo, and we wish to witness the cradle from which a new Cuba will be born.

May you too find 2014 to be full of growth and abundance.  Onward and upward

2008 was a great year.  A lot of incredible things happened, paving the way for a better and brighter future for all.  SpaceX launched the first commercial spacecraft into orbit, leading the way to the future of space exploration.  The Large Hadron Collider at CERN powered up, leading to the discovery of the Higgs boson.  Doctors grew an organ from a patient’s own stem cells and sequenced the entire genome of a cancer patient, both early steps in the revolution of medicine.  We lost nearly $400,000 in the stock market.

Indeed, 2008 was a great year, a year of breakthroughs and triumphs.  The future looks bright

“Hey, wait!  You lost $400k!  How is that a great year?!  You think that looks promising?”
