We are two newly retired financial planners from Vancouver, Canada. We retired on June 30, 2017 after a 28 year carreer in the financial and investment industry. We owned and managed a full financial planning service firm with 4 wonderful employees. We planned long and well for a confortable retirement and always liked the idea of spending a few months away during the grey and wet winter months of the Pacific North West.

I always dreamt of living in Europe, so for our first adventure, I convinced my husband Terry to go spend the winter months in sunny Spain. He was not hard to convince. He too loves the bright sunshine and European travels.

We left Vancouver on Monday Oct 30 and had a layover in Amsterdam to give our dog Amy Lou a chance to recover from her first flight. We then flew to Malaga on November 1st and drove to Nerja our “home” for the next 5 months.  The last month will be spent in Porto and Malaga. Stay tuned, I will update you on our journey!
