Who are we?

We're part-time expats sharing our adventures traveling throughout Europe. We're also recent empty-nesters figuring out what's next. This is the story of how we got here and how it's going. We're sharing what we learn here, with resources, advice, and insights into midlife travel and life transitions. More about us.

We just started documenting this journey in September 2023, so stay tuned. We invite you to subscribe to our newsletter and YouTube channel and join in on the journey.

Our latest video

This video is an overview of the types of travel-related benefits provided by travel branded credit cards that would be valuable to expats and slow travelers / part time expats, and how to use them to enhance your travels. Use this video as a comprehensive introduction to the main issues, and a first step to maximize the returns from these types of credit cards if you have plans for travel in your future.  

If tracking these types of deals is something that you find interesting, there are a number of in-depth online resources and newsletters available to keep you informed of current deals and benefits. Some online resources that focus on Credit Card issues include:

  - https://www.dailydrop.com/

Some of these also have newsletters that can be useful to alert you about special offers and sales.

Note that these types of sites receive commissions for directing you to a credit card company, so as always, be a vigilant consumer!

We are not getting anything from any credit card companies for this video, or from the above links.
