We are Stacy & Jim, a happily married couple living in Southern California. After raising our children, caring for our aging parents and working for over 30 years, we are newly retired (or, as we like to say, “re-wired”) and ready to explore this wonderful world of ours. This blog is our way of recording our adventures, sharing our experiences and musings, posting our photos, and hopefully, serving as a memory device so we might be able to remember how to get back to the places we loved.
Our interests are varied, including travel, art, architecture, customs and cultures of non-Americans, humor, geography, flora and fauna, history, photography, food, wine, hiking, diving, sailing, skiing, shopping (yes, it is a sport!), foreign languages, and human foibles. Hopefully, you can find something in these posts that interests you, even if you don’t share all these interests (as we don’t both share all of them either). So come along with us on our journeys and laugh at the predicaments we will undoubtedly experience. Vaya con gringos!
