Where I live in the world doesn't matter. Whom I am sharing the adventures with and what we are doing does. I am willing to modify my life. Are you??? Two way street. If you are really ready and able to consider life's opportunities, then ... it's time to get started. Have hybrid auto, will travel. I am now in the greater Tampa Bay for most of the Winter season.
For Winter - south for a warmer lifestyle. I am living a few miles due east of downtown Tampa on the Palm River. My goal is to live in this region from October into mid June. Then north for a few cooler, less muggy months. Currently, I have a summer time cabin within a gated country club style resort near Annapolis, MD that lives and feels like a beach community but located inside of a forest. I have made a number of offers to buy a Florida home. I am waiting for one of the offers to click.
I like to travel from where ever I call home. Since Feb 1, 2014, I have been to the Bahamas twice. I'll be there again at the end of Feb 2015 for another week. Also weekend trips to Orlando, St. Augustine, Naples, and Ft Lauderdale. Key West is in my sights for sometime this year. When north, I will head from Annapolis towards Newport, RI, Boston, upstate NY (the Finger Lakes) & Buffalo. Short trips north this summer will include Atlanta, Nashville, Louisville and then to Chicago, Cleveland, and into Ontario, Canada. This year I left Tampa in mid June to travel and was back by election day.
When left to do things by myself, I am into Celtic theme activities. FYI, most of Europe is a mix Celtic heritage and gene pool. I have three kilts and a great attitude about having an active social life. Day time, while in Florida, is for walks, kayaking, biking, learning to play golf, learning to cook differently for a healthier lifestyle. I consider myself overweight right now - not the stud muffin physical condition that I have had in the past. Others would say I am not that overweight. It is all in the eyes of the beholder. Anyhow, besides traveling, I enjoy looking at urban development ideas, real estate investing, sunbathing, swimming, socializing, reading, and stuff on the internet (not in any order).
Life is like a great candy store. I like to feel like I am living life fully. To paraphrase Emerson: "To suck the marrow out of the bones of life". I expect and want to dance, not just watch others dance. Are you dancing or are you watching? I don't believe in waiting for someone to get up to dance. Make eye contact and I'll ask.
