Retired teacher living with husband Mikkel in Pedasi, Panama, enjoying the beauty and adventure of my “Third Life”. In 2010, we started thinking about retirement and where we would live. After much research, we made two visits to Panama, February/2012 & January/2013. Moved from California in August, 2013. Between my husband and I, we have 5 adult children and 7 grandchildren, along with 3 sisters and a brother and their families, all who live back in the US. We love them very much, but they are all living their own lives now. So since we are retired and love the ocean, we were afforded the opportunity to live a “tranquilo” life in a tropical paradise. We love traveling and I enjoy writing about my travels and experiences, challenges, and adventures.
