After 10 plus years in our current apartment we are making a change.  We have contracted to rent the new apartment year round.  It is a one bedroom, definitely bigger than our current studio. Among the biggest pluses are only one flight of stairs, a cab can pull up to the door. No more schlepping groceries almost a full block from where the taxi stops and then 3 flights of stairs. A cool breeze blows through the apartment so we will be less reliant on the air conditioner and we are still only a block and half from the bay. Oh, it only costs  half of what we pay now. Along with the pluses there is a minus or two, we are a block further away from where we are now and our balcony now looks over a street with traffic instead of just pedestrians. We will miss the daily camaraderie  of the folks in our building,. While we still only plan to be there 4-5 months we will be able to leave our personal belongings in place,  acquire as much personal stuff as we need to make ourselves as comfortable here as at home.  It also allows for the possibility that family  or friends might  want an opportunity to sample Zihuatanejo could take advantage of our apartment.

We are so excited with all the possibilities, but unfortunately we can’t move in in March like we hoped as it is rented March to April so we have to wait until next year to begin feathering our nest. Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO

  1. Congratulations on your new digs!
    I’m very interested in the details,(cost, location, old and new place etc.). If you don’t mind sharing, you can email me privately. We are hoping for one more year to retirement and will be looking for something similar. I’m just not sure where to start. We are coming in June (we’re teachers) and hope to find some places to look at for the future. Thanks in advance!
