The Gold Hidden in the Backyard

On March 31, 2015, I found myself on the island of Rhodes with my partner. How lucky we are to be able to travel. Before Dimitris and I met, I had done some traveling but not much. Most of my traveling had been on cruises. What Dimitris has taught me is that spending money on travel, when done carefully and rationally, can be managed on a school teacher’s retirement income and a retired postal worker’s investments and savings. Because Dimitris is Greek, many of our trips have been extensions of visits to Athens. They have included trips from Athens to Dubai, Finland, Estonia as well as several Greek islands, including Santorini. While making these trips, I have continued to maintain all financial obligations, including financial support for my church and my ex-wife. My friends are amazed. My brother, who has a lucrative retirement income, thinks I have gold buried in the back yard.
