We are David and Laura Speer. Learning from our mistakes in a new marriage, travel and hopefully early retirement. We were 45 year old single parents who were raising our kids on our own, dreaming of more. We met on an online dating site (yes it does work) and 2 years of dating we started our own story together as a married couple with five teenagers.
This website is both a travel blog and a Love letter to my husband and how happy I am in my marriage. David is a Robot Programmer but also does beekeeping with four hives in our backyard right now.
I am a Nuclear Physicist (a physics geek – perfect match for a robot programmer) working for 30 years now.
This website is a joint project between us, I am the writing and uploading and David does a lot of the photography.
How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement dates was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old – still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family.
Follow us to see what happens before and after our dream date.
So while we get ready for our next chapter of our lives… Join us, we will post as many of our mistakes I can learn from, ask us advise, travel along and plan your own adventures.
