Braving the World: Adventures in Travel and Retirement

“When it came right down to it, our dream trip felt like falling off a cliff.”

After early retirement, in 2017 Pam and her husband Dave packed four suitcases and one beer cooler full of insulin and boarded a one-way flight to Italy for a year-long dream trip.

The dream was to live like locals, find out-of-the-way restaurants, and watch the seasons change.  But behind every dream, there is the reality.

What happens when two people retire from their full-time jobs and realize they have developed separate lives? Is it possible to reconnect, despite the stress of traveling, while living alone together, 24/7, in small apartments? Is there such a thing as too much togetherness? Their dream trip came with other challenges—managing Pam’s Type 1 diabetes, dodging political unrest in Barcelona, and navigating water restrictions in Egypt.   

Through the ups and downs of travel, Pam and Dave start to rebuild their lives together… and look for a little adventure.
