Glad to see you haven't retired. Besides, how do you retire from a life of traveling the world?
The idea of perpetual travel it an alien thought, few people allow me the right to find my own path, they feel that as my friend, they should encourage me to stop traveling, like somehow this would make me happy. People are who they are, we cannot say we are different, we are what we do, no more, no less.
A traveler is a person that can ignore 99 percent of their friends best advice.

Your comment reminds me of a guy I met in LA while buying 1000 John Lennon buttons for resale who said, "defintion of friends, those who take up space between birth and death". Ever since then that's sort of how I think of LA / southern California, one of foreign investors' favorite places to invest.
The Kung Fu series exposed us to "perpetual travel" and reading the biographies of most of the "New World" explorers from the late 1400s to the late 1800s exposed me to perpetual travel and ignited my boyhood dreams of living an adventurous life. So you're NOT such an oddball Andy, you're LIVING your DREAMS so REJOICE in the JOY OF SUCH A LIFE!!!
