Hello and welcome to Wind and Whim, a website for anyone who has dreamed of leaving it all behind to explore the world or would like to travel vicariously.

We promise to tell you the truth about living the dream. You will get the good, the bad, the beautiful, and the ugly.

Here you will find posts about our experiences as full-time travelers. We share our impressions of the places we visit, discuss what we have learned, and post practical information like our costs and the services and apps we use. We also put aside our egos to tell you about our mistakes and the dumb things we occasionally do.

Our website’s name, Wind and Whim, describes our travel philosophy. We don’t plan too far in advance because we want to be open to new possibilities, and we are a bit lazy. We go wherever the wind and our whims take us.

Click here to learn how we went from suburban office workers to retired, full-time travelers.

And click here to see where we’ve wandered.

So sit back and relax. Wander the world with us. Even better, sign up for email alerts:
