About Dave and Laura

We are David and Laura Speer – second marriages for both of us. We love travel and hopefully early get to take an retirement.  We met on an online dating site (yes it does work) and after 2 years of dating we started our own story together as a married couple with five teenagers.


This website is both a travel blog (not much travel during Covid, so blogging what we can right now) and a Love letter to my husband on how happy I am in my marriage. David is a Robot Programmer but also does beekeeping with four hives in our backyard right now. 

I am a Nuclear Physicist (a physics geek – perfect match for a robot programmer) working for 30 years now.  

This website is a joint project between us, I am the writing and uploading and David does a lot of the photography.

How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Aiming for retirement January 1, 2021 – we have gone over the math 100times, and we can, so David will start by retiring and I will follow behind him, still trying to figure out how to pay for health insurance, but will figure it out.

So while we get ready for our next chapter of our lives… Join us, we will post as many of our mistakes I can learn from, ask us advise, travel along and plan your own adventures.
