LIFE IS GOOD
Hi my name is Dave. I am now a retired and full-time traveler.
This site is all about living the rest of my life HAPPILY, PEACEFULLY, and with a LITTLE ADVENTURE! All while on a budget!
To me it is what being totally FREE is all about!!! It is also about getting others to have a different outlook on traveling.
What I write about cannot be found in travel magazines. It is not about faceless 5-star hotels. Whether they have double sinks in the bathrooms, or gourmet meals.
It is about the smaller hotels. Family-run places and the really really amazing people. That can be found in every country and how happy and friendly they really are.
To me it is only the governmental rulers of each and every country that are screwed up. Not the fun loving and very caring people that live there.
It is about family traditions and real life!
It also is about being open to all that passes your way. From what some may call “the crazy man on the corner”, the homeless, street people like the mimes, clowns, puppeteers.
And every other conceivable thing that people come up with to make a buck. If you go with an open mind there is a lot out there to fill it!
As of the end of 2015. I have sold everything I owned and now have only a suitcase and small backpack.
I have traveled my whole life for work and pleasure. So it was a natural transition now that I am truly FREE from it all.
For several years now. I have been traveling from country to country and place to place. Sending back stories and photos of my little adventures to a group of friends. That “group” has grown much bigger.
So now I have decided to put it on a site for all to see. Maybe it will help you in some little way to decide if you would like to visit these places. For a week, a month, or even become an Expat yourself.
It will at least give you an idea of the places I have been and seen. I think it will be of interest to young and old alike. It is geared more to the old, as I am 70. That being said, I am young at heart, fit in anywhere, and go with the flow!!!
I am NOT a Professional Writer or Photographer. The only thing I am professional at is TRAVELING and LIVING LIFE to its FULLEST!!!!
This website is not going to be an everyday thing. But I fully intend to give this site my best shot!
My personal goal is to go out of this life as happy as possible and to have taken advantage of every day and adventure that comes my way!!! So let’s get on with it. Life is passing us by!!!

This site was meant to be commercial free and that is how I am going to keep it. It is for those solely interested in travel without all the bull shit of things popping up and highlighted words trying to sell you something.
If you think the stories are to boring just look at the photos.
My favorite sayings are I will endeavor to persevere, I am smarter than the average bear and I can smell a picnic basket from 3 miles away!! LIFE IS GOOD!!!! Dave
