Welcome to the Paul and Vicki Terhorst Travel, Early Retirement, and Contemplation Page

             We are Paul and Vicki Terhorst. We retired young and are now perpetual travelers.
This page lets you know our whereabouts, how to contact us, and what's going on in our lives.

We updated this page from Bangkok, Thailand on September 14, 2015.

"On-the-go" describes our July, August and early September travels. 

We slept in at least 17 different beds in hotels, in AirBnb rooms, and in the homes of friends or family. 

We often ask others what surprised them most during their travels. Our answer for July in France would be the Canal Bridge in Agen. This bridge, similar to an aqueduct, carries canal boats across a river valley. Mind boggling. 

In Nantes the mechanical elephant and focus on native-born Jules Verne also surprised and delighted.

We stayed in numerous plan 'Z' towns/cities in France as our original plan A, B and C choices had too many tourists, in other words, no room at the inn. And even in some plan 'Z' towns we had trouble finding reasonable accommodations. This meant we moved on, usually by train, after short stays. Constant change created more stress than our usual slow-style travel. Still, we like to do something different from the norm now and again. And we had fun, the effort paid off big time.  In 5 weeks we stayed in:








And then back to Paris for a week. 


In early August we flew to the Pacific Northwest where we had good times with family and also with friends whom we hadn't seen in a long time. We toured three favorite cities: 





During the rest of August and early September we treasured our time with family.

We arrived in Bangkok on September 10th and plan to stay still for awhile, sort of, 
as we do plan to see friends in Chiang Mai and make a visa run to Cambodia.

 In 2016 Vicki's travels will include Argentina and the States. 
                                           Both Paul and Vicki will return to Paris next Spring.


Paul's recent writing, two articles a month, has been for Live and Invest Overseas subscription newsletters:  "Overseas Retirement Living" and "The Simon Letter".  
This means that for now we have no free articles to link to our homepage.

Click on TIMELESS to go to our Timeless page which has links to old articles by Paul and a few by Vicki about our travels and reflections. These articles are available for free on the Live and Invest Overseas website.
We wrote Cashing In on the American Dream, published by what is now Bantam Doubleday Dell, in 1988.  Even though the book is out of date and out of print, it is still considered a classic read for anyone considering early retirement.
