Considering selling off everything to travel the world...maybe

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for opinions, please and thank you.

Here's the situation. Husband and I have lived on our farm the last 27 years. Both our girls will be off to college soon, and with that we lose our two best helpers.

Husband is not up to the work anymore, and I'm working constantly just to keep paying for the last thing that broke. We get little to no enjoyment from the place anymore; we're frankly exhausted.

So...we're thinking about selling everything and spending 6 months or a year traveling before we (maybe) settle down again. We've traveled some but it's always hard to get away between the girls' school, extracurriculars and the general incarceration of owning a farm.

Husband has a pension that could follow us wherever we go. It wouldn't be luxurious, but if we sell everything we'll be debt-free. Selling everything would also pay for about 3/4 of our daughters' college (a huge plus!).

Do you know anyone who's done this? Tips? Suggestions? Considerations? Cautions?

Thanks.
