Well, we wish wed sold our home closer to the top of the real estate market, and we sure wish wed held fewer NASDAQ stocks. But otherwise, we have no regrets of much importance. There is one piece of advice I got, or read, over and over again, which I followed, and that I now regret a little. Lots of cruisers told us to rid ourselves of our possessions before going cruising. So, we saved a few special pieces of family furniture, some favorite artwork, and many boxes of photos and mementos, but by and large we sold everything else. Funnily enough, now that Im out here, I realize Im a little more sentimental about some of the items we let go than I thought Id be. Ultimately, though, theyre all just things, and things can be replaced. But if you have any second thoughts about anything you have, and you have a place to store it, just keep it for the future. Someday, youll be back home and might like to have it again. One thing we dont regret, however, is quitting our jobs, and setting off when we did. Perhaps, if wed waited, we wouldve had a bigger financial cushion, and that would have been nice. But, now that were out here, weve learned that we like getting by on less, the cruising life is relatively cheap, and that the most important thing (and sometimes the most difficult) is putting one foot in front of the other and moving out of the old and into the new. It feels great to have done that.
