Well, we are not exactly early retirees by definition, but we heard that expression a lot the last weeks and so we stick to it, creating a bit of mystery whether we are or not :-).
I couldn't say that the last three weeks without a job were boring. So far I was pretty busy with all sorts of stuff. It is different, more leisurly and of course boating stuff now and I am entirely enjoying it.
Two weeks ago we had a bright sunny winter day the first time in almost two month. We went out for a long walk and enjoyed the winter wonderland with our Dubarry sailing boots. Guess what? They are not only good for a wet boat ride but also amazingly warm and a 100% dry in snow.

Other activities included meeting up with friends. Here we are with Frank and Eva enjoying Tapas and good wine. Not really fitting to my new routine of not eating rich in the evening, but soooo good.

Other than that I am busy making use of public transportation to get things done. Last week I went to our bank, which is a bit outside of Munich. It took me the better part of the day to get this task accomplished. But you know what? I didn't care. I enjoyed watching the people in suits talking or typing along in their smartphones or tablets. Missing a train... no worries man. I don't care anymore. Instead I went for a coffee and got to talk to people, which I never met before.
After returning to "the city" I decided to not go home to our boxes, but rather do something that I haven't done in a long time. Strolling through the city, browsing through shops, sitting in a coffee shop, and just see the time go by. Later that day I met with a friend and went back home at around 10 pm, totally happy about my great day out. Life is becoming awesome again and I slowly adapt to my new found freedom. Am I an early retiree? No, not really, but close. /k.
