Recently posted a thread about what it is like to ride in Eastern Europe. My wife's skills, appears all go to live in Europe 2-4 years. ESL teachers are in great demand about the world.
So once she completes her 'international certification' she will be in demand in many countries. With investments, we can do an early retirement. and work overseas for awhile.
We want to be replaced anywhere from Portugal to Romania. I will take a bike maintenance course and want a fun job. With those skills, I hope my future will offer a new 'fun job.'
A bike acquaintance retired and bought a condo in New Zealand and spends our winters there. as I understand she works for an international bike touring company and she leads a really charmed life for a cycle fanatic, as she is. In the summer she summers in California and Europe. What a life.
We want to follow her lead. What do you think.. anyone lived in Europe. do we need think of purchasing a car or do bikes rule. ? I will miss our beloved Coastal California, but we hope to be back; unless we join our nephew who will do a really early retirement in Australia, which is also bike friendly, I think.
Will soon get a lab top and hope to post our travels in our new land here at Bike Forum.
A concern. Getting my four bikes to Europe. Thinking of getting there by freighter. Cleveland to La Havre. that way I can go down into the hold and check out my bikes.
anyone else done this kind of thing. Your feelings about your adventures. think our lead choices for our new home will be Czech Republic.
