Owning Our Own Private Villa in Mykonos Greece

Saturday, September 16th, 2017

My wife and I talked about a retirement home in the south. We both had the mindset from our youth to work hard early to retire young. Whereas some people who get a decent financial gain in life want to keep on making more and more, our goal was to stop working to generate income and just do the things we wanted and liked to do. One of those things was visiting Greece. We had been there before a few times. We decided to look at Mykonos villas to purchase to own. We had rented a couple in the past, and now we wanted our own Grecian getaway that would probably become a semi-permanent home.

We enjoyed the climate. It never got too hot, and it never gets too cold. In Mykonos it is around 48 degrees Fahrenheit in January with it being about the mid 80s in July. I can live with that kind of climate year round. Here, if you go far south, it gets blisteringly hot and humid in the summer, and the north is frigid in the winter. Mykonos is a bit more temperate and to our liking. The Mykonos villas we were looking at are newer places. (more…)


Got a Great Deal on an Apartment

When I started out searching for a new place to live, the idea was not to look for luxury apartments in Colton CA since that was not really in the price range that I was thinking about and there is simply no way that I could afford a place like this if I was carrying all of the weight on my own. However I just happened to run into this guy that I had known in high school. He was in a pretty big hurry until I told him that I had been looking at apartments. Then he smiled and asked me if I wanted to move in with him and this other guy. I did not really commit, but asked him where it was and if the other guy was easy to get along with. He laughed and told me that it was hard not to get along with him, since his job had him flying all over the country and he was only at home about a quarter of the time. (more…)
