If you traveled to 60 countries, do you think you would end up with a favorite place? Karen and Richard McCann did just that before deciding to retire in Seville, Spain. Sevillianos like to stay out late, perhaps that is why the siesta is still alive and well in Seville. Karen and Richard usually spend half of each year in Seville and the other half split between a home in northern California and traveling the world. Karen and Richard believe that you absolutely do not have to settle for boring and predictable travel at any age. On Episode 36 of Retire There with Gil & Gene, you’ll be convinced that life can be what you want it to be. And more!
Karen has authored several books. Dancing in the Fountain: How to Enjoy Living Abroad is her entertaining look at living in Seville. After she and Richard took a 6,000 mile spontaneous trip through 13 countries by train, Karen wrote Adventures of a Railway Nomad: How Our Journeys Guide Us Home.
Two of her other books are 101 Ways to Enjoy Living Abroad: Essential Tips for Easing the Transition to Expat Life and Pack Light: Quick & Easy Tips For Traveling Everywhere with Exactly the Right Stuff. Another of Karen's books, How to Meet People on the Road, is available here as part of a three book set with 101 Ways… and Pack Light.
