About Us



We are Darrell and Carolyn from the Lone Star state of Texas embarking on a new chapter in our lives – retired and living abroad. After 20 plus long hard years of slaving away we are finally unplugged from the Matrix. What is the Matrix?


“The Matrix is a system… That system is our enemy. When you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters… You have to understand that most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it”. – Morpheus

It is our desire to encourage others to retire early, travel the world and live their dreams. However, we can only show you the door you are the one who has to walk through it. The choice is yours.
