Amazing Boomer Adventure is about two baby boomers who have chosen to embark on an incredible journey. They sold their house in North Carolina, and have started a two year trip around the globe. I met Linda and Joe when they were staying in Colorado for three months over the summer. When I heard their amazing boomer adventure story, I knew it had to be shared with others.
How the Amazing Boomer Adventure Began
Joe and Linda raised their two girls in Alabama and then moved to North Carolina (they now have four grandchildren). The couple had talked often about what they would do once their kids were grown and on their own. One of their biggest interests was to travel and see the world. It came about that a number of things fell into place for them to be able to pursue their amazing boomer adventure.
- They decided to sell their North Carolina home of 18 years. They had updated the home and the real estate market had improved markedly. The couple knew their home was in the best shape it would ever be, so they put in on the market to see what would happen.
- Linda’s mom was ill, and she and Joe decided to rent a place near her. This allowed Linda to be with her mom.
- Their house sold sooner than they expected, and then Linda’s mom passed on. At that point, they realized it would be the perfect time to travel and pursue their amazing boomer adventure.
