Happy Anniversary to AdventuRetired!!
Happy anniversary to us!
Hard to believe that just one year ago our first podcast episodes dropped into the podcast libraries of all major podcast hosts ! Our vision for this podcast has always been to inspire others at or near retirement age to "Live Your Retired Life" ! We appreciate our guests who share their retirement journeys to help in this inspiration! We never dreamt that we would have so many downloads in one year and be in the Top 20% of podcasts due to these numbers and we have never advertised or earned a dime!!!
Podcasts are relatively new to our age and older people. We are finding that retired people don't have the expertise that the Millennials and Gen Xers do in downloading and subscribing to podcasts. Curt and I have only been podcast listeners for the last five years, but we love them. This is just one more learning curve for the generation who grew up with dial phones with party lines attached to the wall with a cord!
Who would have thought we would become hosts to our own show???? Thanks to all of our subscribers and downloaders for listening to these adventures! You have motivated us and have allowed us to come into your lives with your retirement stories. Also thank you to all of our special guests! You are the real stars of our show and our podcast is successful because you took the time to talk to us and tell us of your amazing adventures in retirement!
We have learned many lessons along the way and we are still learning! Who knew that meeting that stranger in a McDonald's parking lot a year ago and purchasing his podcast equipment would lead to such a fun and successful retirement hobby for us!
Happy Anniversary AdventuRetired!
So, is retired-ish a real word? It sounds like the title of a new TV sitcom! It is a great question for sure! Michael and Sofia Rohr from Hawaii live this lifestyle and they do very well at it!
Our new definition of retired-ish is : where one spouse works full time and the other spouse works at keeping the first spouse happy! Retirement journeys are all different and unique and being retired-ish suits this great couple perfectly.
After visiting with Sofia and Michael we realize that retirements can inspire us in different ways. What is important to understand is that we all have our own path to retirement travel. They call themselves Sojourners which means "a person who resides temporarily in a place" , and the Rohrs fit that name perfectly! What a great retirement adventure!
Do you have a passion or a pet peeve that is a driving force in your retirement? In this interview we meet Jody Naquin Ritner from Virginia who shares a passion of ours! No, not traveling....which is a big passion of ours.... but picking up trash!
Retirement Reboot in Bulgaria!
Where is your retirement path leading? Do you see yourself retiring and living in a foreign country? Retirement can be a new beginning for sure! In this interview we meet a recent retiree from the educational field who took a huge leap of faith when he moved to teach his final years in Kuwait. Richard Barbree, retired from one career in education and moved to Kuwait to teach in an American school there. In Kuwait, he met his future wife and eventually they retired together in her homeland of Bulgaria! Enjoy!
All Inclusive Resorts Spoil You!
Meet Del and Pamella Kissinger our wonderful Iowa friends who are definitely living their best retired lives! This fun couple loves to travel and when they do they go to "all inclusive resorts!" We met Pam and Del in Cabo San Lucas a couple of years ago at Rui Palace Baja California (a wonderful all inclusive resort) where Del was sitting in a pool relaxing with a cool tropical drink wearing a Iowa Hawkeye cap! You can bet this caught Curt's eye ( we are Iowa State Cyclones) and we soon became fast resort friends. Why do they choose to travel and vacation using the "all inclusive" lifestyle? Listen to this interview and we bet you'll be busy booking a trip soon!
One of my favorite podcasts as they are so fun! I’m only 46 but love listening.
LOVE the Liljedahls!
I’m a former physics baby and it brings me joy to hear Mr.Liljedahl’s voice and his talks about life again! You’ll fall in love with Cindy too, I’m telling ya! So excited for this podcast!!!
Making the most of retirement!
Excellent introduction to what I think will be a very fun series and on-going connection for people interested in making the most of their retirement years! People entering those 10 years pre-retirement will find it very interesting and entertaining too...plus who knows it may help you start looking at retirement differently! Looking forward to more from these two...and don’t forget to check out their website!
