We’re Geoff & Leanne an average Australian couple that have made what many consider to be an extraordinary decision. Retire early, pack up, leave the security of normalcy and routine and depart our homeland with only a suitcase each and most importantly a positive, adventurous attitude.
We’ve purchased a boat in England, renamed her Sunshine Coast in honour of our former home and plan to spend the next several years cruising the rivers, canals and coastlines of Europe. When it gets too cold in Europe for two sun loving Aussies we will follow the warm weather’s rays and explore the world.
Enrichment… Living the dream lifestyle
Since our decision to retire so many people have told us “you’re brave” or wishfully stated that we’re “living the dream” but virtually anyone can do this.
Our goal is to take you along on this journey, educate, encourage and enrich people via this travel blog with the knowledge that a great lifestyle is out there once you’re able to break through the pre-conceived notions of what life is “supposed” to be like.
Why did we do it, how did we do it, can you do it too?
Of course you can!
Read on, come along on our adventures and see how you can enjoy the retired afloat lifestyle.
