Selfie at Trogon Lodge in 2014

In short, after 11 years of retirement in Nashville I realized I couldn’t afford to travel for nature photography and live in retirement there, thus deciding to just go live in my favorite place to travel, Costa Rica! I also wanted to get away from right-wing Republican Tennessee who are partly responsible for America being only for rich people.

The website was started in 2000 while in The Gambia, West Africa with reports from that experience still here. See: Gambia Missionary.

The blog is all about being “Retired in Costa Rica” that I started in June 2014 before moving here in December 2014. Costa Rica is the perfect place for me! I can’t imagine living in retirement anywhere else now. Enjoy my stories and photos! And then go live your own dream!  You only live once!   🙂
