Hi, all! I’m glad you are here. Welcome to my blog, “Wandering Off Somewhere.” My name is Cindy Gelpi and I’m a 56 year-old from New Orleans, Louisiana who has been traveling all over the world on and off for the last 20 years.
I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to China, Bulgaria, Canada, Singapore, Italy, Germany, Russia, Colombia and many other countries around the world. My husband Mike recently retired, and we have made it our mission to explore the beautiful continent of Europe for the next few years.
We moved to the beautiful and charming country of Croatia about two years ago in order to learn more about the Croatian way of life and to be close to the crystal clear Adriatic Sea. We are living in Pula on the Istrian peninsula, and I hope you will join us in our adventures in Croatia and the surrounding areas! We have visited a wide variety of cities in Croatia and many different countries throughout Europe as well. In addition, since my dear husband is a captain, we have sailed throughout the Adriatic to visit many of the islands.
Are you interested in retiring in Europe or in Croatia? Do you just need some motivation and help planning your adventures abroad? Sometimes changes are intimidating, but with a little planning and a little inspiration, you, too, can make your dreams come true. It’s surprisingly affordable to live in Croatia, so if money is an issue, remember that you can find ways to live within your budget here.
Please comment below on where your dream retirement destination would be. I would love to hear from you. Or just comment on a place that you would like to visit but that you are a little intimidated about making it happen. Or contact me directly at email@example.com.
Maybe I can give you some motivation or some inspiration. It’s never too late to travel the world and make your dreams come true!
Our theme song for the next few years:
“They made up our minds, and they started packing. They left before the sun came up that day. Exit to eternal summer slacking. Where were they going without ever knowing the way?”—- lyrics from the The Way by Fastball.
