After weeks of looking for a trip that we could take together (no kids) during the time our youngest would be on spring break (and could go to his mothers) we finally found a cruise to Cozumel, Mexico – Grand Cayman – and two days in Havana, Cuba. It is a Holland America Cruise, smaller older ship. But the cost total for seven days and a day before stay in Fort Lauderdale is under $2100. We searched Travelzoo, Travelocity, Groupon, Cruise.com and finally found a trip that meets all our criteria. Whew, a lot and I mean a lot of looking (months of looking) our deal was on Cruise.com, but cheaper directly thru the Holland America site (like $150 each cheaper). Now just to dream and figure out excursions, hopefully loose a few pounds and buy a nice outfit.

We are starting a new adventure together as a recently married couple (2016). We met online (Match.com) and merged our single parent families together to raise our 5 teenagers, and work our way thru our newly blended family and our dream of retiring early to sleep more than 8 hours and travel the world. Yes, we both worked long hours, and at one point Laura worked 8 simultaneous part time jobs to make ends meet as single parents. We saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids to become find citizens of the world, we realized we have the opportunity to retire early (when our youngest is 18 years old) and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. D-day is January 1, 2021. Follow us to see what happens before and after our dream date.
