Meet the Senior Nomads

Thursday, December 8, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Meet the Senior Nomads, Debbie and Michael Campbell. What's their story? Well, let's let them tell it:

"We are from Seattle,Washington, one of the most beautiful cities in America and a great place to call home — if you have one. 

As we were closing in on retirement, we felt we had “one more adventure in us” so in July of 2013 we rented our townhouse, sold our sailboat and a car, and reduced our stuff to fit in a small storage unit. We waved goodbye to our family and friends and headed off to explore the world!

Since then we have visited 160 cities in 56 countries including all of Europe as well as Morocco, Turkey, Israel, Russia, Mexico and Cuba.

We weren't sure how long we'd be gone. Now, over three years later, we still aren't sure! In fact, we recently sold our home in Seattle so now we truly are nomads."

If you have any interest in travel, you'll want to be with us on Thursday, December 8th to hear from the Nomads and check out their book, Your Keys Our Home. It shares tales of living full-time in Airbnbs in over 50 countries and tells stories from the road about delightful people all around the globe. From the barber’s chair in Dublin and the dentist’s chair in Split, to a wild motorcycle ride in Athens, a peek behind the Soviet curtain in Transnistria and the demise of a chicken for dinner in Marrakech, the Nomads found the world to be just one big neighborhood. 

More than just a series of charming anecdotes, the book also shares tips on how to find your next Airbnb, how to get where you want to go, and suggests frugal ways to enjoy a new city just as the locals do.
