My monthly Extraordinary Lives series is something that I really enjoying doing. With the goal of traveling around the world, Jeremy and Winnie were in their 30s when they retired around six years ago. Their 3-year-old son travels with them and has already been to 29 countries as well! And more! This interview is jam packed full of great information! I asked you, my readers, what questions I should ask them, so below are your questions and some of mine about their story and how they accomplished so much. Winnie and I retired about six years ago with the goal of traveling the world. Traveling more in retirement is a pretty common goal, so I suppose the interesting bits are that we were still in our 30s and our 3-year-old son has now been to 29 countries.

I was drawn to his site not only because he retired young from a high-income career, but also for the fact that he travels more or less non-stop. He and Winnie have a toddler that has visited more countries in three years than I have in my nearly 43 years. Fun fact: We both grew up in southern Minnesota and graduated from high school a year or two apart. I found my way back to the state for now, and he visits the homeland on occasion, but we have yet to cross paths in person. Once upon a time, I designed disposable consumer electronics for a respectable software company. Work was great — I flew business class all over the world, spent s of millions of dollars of other peoples money, and commanded a global workforce.
I don't mean to be rude, but she's not gonna give up her "nonsense". I think the LDS have been vastly over-simplifying that doctrine. I even had someone tell me I should know better than to marry a nomo. I have been a doctor's wife for almost 2 years - and we have been together for about 7 years, since right before intern year. I could get a small jigsaw puzzle and send those pieces once a day. Your crush might put a lampshade on her head and call it innocent fun. We have family prayer every day and read the scriptures occasionally.
How the Book of Mormon was translated using a sacred rock. A Mormon wife will also want to bring the kids along, and that should be discussed and decided before marriage and before kids. At the end of the second date I knew I needed him in my life. A good place to go is to a museum, hiking, or to a park. If you think your girlfriend's resistance to being exposed to anything critical of Mormonism sounds cult-like, you are right. I think she sounds great but she won't be able to not bring it up. All that matters to her is things are how they are because god wants them that way. I was thinking the same thing when I read this.
