Welcome to our website!
We are Dennis and Ger, a husband and wife team who are committed to creating and living our own mobile semi-retirement lifestyle and helping others to do the same. We hope you will enjoy following our journeys and get some useful information from our research and experiences that will help you to create your own path to a life that offers more freedom and fun and less drudgery and work.
About our website name…
“Luck favors” are the first two words in the saying “Luck favors those in motion” which is the longer version of our website name. There have been a number of famous sayings similar to this one, such as “Luck favors the bold” and “Luck favors the prepared mind”, etc. All of these quotes work fine for us as well, because in addition to being in motion, it certainly doesn’t hurt to be bold and prepared as well. Anyway, “luck favors those in motion” is a quote which has long been one of Dennis’ favorites and it fits the theme of our website perfectly, so there you are!
More about us…
We are both 62 years of age (as of this post date, May 2017), and for the last three decades we have lived in Portland, Oregon. We raised two daughters who are out on their own in the world as of a few years ago. About a year ago we began to explore the idea of transitioning from a full-time work lifestyle to a semi-retirement lifestyle which would allow us more time for the things we like to do most, like travel, writing, photography, music, cooking, and learning about other cultures. Our combined skills included computer programming, writing, and photography, so it was a natural choice for us to consider developing our own websites as a semi-retirement career choice. This website is our first attempt. We hope you find it useful.
About this website….
There are two parts to our website. First, there are many posts about topics we’ve researched. These are categorized under the various main menu headings like Health, Working, Money, and so on. Next, there is our blog , where we talk about whatever we happen to be doing at the time. Eventually, when we have enough travel posts for various locations that they need to be organized under headings by region or country, we will do that. But for now there is a single chronological blog for everything.
We hope you enjoy your visit with us!
