We’ve been at this traveling lifestyle for 6 months now. There are a lot of great things about it, but one of our favorite things is all of the new people we meet. We may meet and talk to them only once, but it’s never been disappointing.
Take today for instance. We went down to the pool before it got too hot and in between Jodi’s work things. First we talked for a while with a man that is originally from the western states, but has also worked overseas in several places. We learned some of his and his wife’s favorite places and why.
Next, also today, we met a retired couple who now live in The Villages, but still work. We learned about some of his Vietnam War experiences and Jodi spent a long time talking to his wife about work she still does.
We also learn a lot about the areas we’re staying in. Things we may not be able to learn otherwise due to our usual short stays. There’s nothing better than learning from the locals.
