Retired Couple Turn into World Traveling Nomads

Written by Gary North on December 27, 2012

This couple sold their home in Paso Robles, California, and started touring the world.

We hear about people like this. These people have done it.

The wife started a blog site about their travels: http://homefreeadventures.com.

They were worried about old age. They wanted to see the world. So, they are doing just that.

They rent homes along the way.

I like my lifestyle. I spend most of my time in my basement office. I write. I read. I don’t go anywhere.

I would pay a lot of money not to travel. Fortunately, I don’t have to. I get to stay home for free.

My view of travel is simple: if you want to see the world, rent travel videos. Or watch YouTube. Enjoy these delights: No TSA. No delayed flights. No maps. No foreign currencies. No ruins. No rental cars.

But if you want to travel, do it while you still can. Rent out your home and hit the road.

  1. An absolutely wonderful way to travel for pennies (via your TV) is through a Roku. Roku is a live video streaming device that hooks to your TV through an HDMI cable or the three red, yellow, black connections. It doesn't download anything, but rather, it live streams fromt he internet using your wireless router. Roku is a little box the size of 6 drink coasters that you purchase one time for $50 at Walmart. I paid $80 for the HD version. Then you select from over 600 channels in the Channel Store. For Travel I recommend Video Visits. They have many trips to choose from. We are still finding new ones. Our favorites are the half hour shows produced by Smart Travels (www.smarttravels.tv).
    We were looking for a way to save money. We got rid of cable TV as well as the phone we had through the cable company. (We both have cell phones) With rabbit ears we get the local stations; ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. I still have high-speed internet through them, but we are saving $80+ per month.Roku has been a glorious surprise! You can even select a channel that helps you learn a foreign language.
