Putting off our China trip

Decided last night we are going to have to put off our China trip not because we’re scared of being sick with Corona virus but because we’re scared of being quarantine.

The idea of being locked in a room for 3 weeks when we arrive and not seeing the sites, or coming home and being forced to quarantine for 3 weeks to beyond scary to me. We have always felt just sitting on a couch or stuck at home is the worst thing for us. So a delay to September is planned. Luckily we can do this for only a $68 penalty each. Worth it to us. New trip to be planned to replace it soon.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)

  1. You are being wise! Life is all about rolling with the punches and riding the waves of change and unexpected circumstances. You are simply adapting, do it’s all good!

      1. If you go in the Spring – say May – you could do a side trip to Lhasa, Tibet. It is well worth seeing. If you decide to go there email me and I’ll tell you how we got there. …It wasn’t easy.

      2. September would be a good time. We went in October and were still able to go to Tibet. Lhasa closes up for the winter around late October. October wasn’t the best of time of year because there are a lot of Chinese people travelling at that time. Nevertheless, we saw a lot and it was just the two of us.

    1. Wow, we tried to cancel with air Canada fix we bought thru Priceline and honestly they said, well why would you want to cancel? We have heard nothing about this flu, you will have to call our management. We did the next day and got the deal of $68.
