Still practicing social distancing in Budapest, Hungary.

Hello. We are glad you came to visit. This blog is for anyone who has dreamed of leaving it all behind to explore the world. It is also for those who would like to travel vicariously.

On our website you will find posts about our experiences as full-time travelers. We will share our impressions of the places we visit, discuss what we have learned, and share practical information like our costs and the services we use.

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

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

What’s In a Name?

We chose Wind and Whim because it 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.

2020 was the first year that we mapped out an itinerary for the year. We did this so our adult daughters could visit us during the year. And we all know how that turned out.

It is now 2021. We have been in Budapest, Hungary since March of 2020 waiting for the pandemic to loosen its grip. Where will we go when we can travel again? That remains to be seen. 🤷‍♀️

Come wander the world with us,
Linda
