My husband and I have a running argument about traveling. I want to travel more. He's concerned about the cost of getting care for our two rescue dogs, Izzy and Winky, and my Moluccan cockatoo Mr. Grant. And it's not just the cost. It's the upheaval that the animals have to go through when we leave. So when I found out about these house sitting websites that are out there, I HAD to dig deeper and learn more.

Airbnb is an American company which operates an online marketplace and hospitality service for people to lease or rent short-term lodging including holiday cottages, apartments, homestays, hostel beds, or hotel rooms, to participate in or facilitate experiences related to tourism such as walking tours, and to make reservations at restaurants. The company does not own any real estate or conduct tours; it is a broker which receives percentage service fees in conjunction with every booking. Like all hospitality services, Airbnb is an example of collaborative consumption and sharing. The company has over 4 million lodging listings in 65,000 cities and 191 countries and has facilitated over 260 million check-ins.

In this episode, I talk with John Brocato about traveling solo.

John had the fortune (or misfortune) of growing up a Kansas City Royals fan living in St. Louis Cardinals territory. John’s two primary hobbies are baseball and travel. He decided to write a book about his adventures which is called Road Trips, Routes, and Royals.

John is the first to admit that he is difficult to travel with. He likes to go "off the beaten path". This is one of the reasons he began traveling solo. John has some fascinating stories to tell about his travels and he gives a TON of great information in this episode.

As most of you know, I recently went on a cruise and while I was there, I met Donna Clark.

Ha!)

http://CruiseCritic.com is the most extraordinary place to go to find volumes of information and helps keep you cruising in retirement.

This website is a valuable tool for anyone looking into cruising or on a cruise. You can find things such as:

They didn’t talk about what Rob is doing in retirement. But they did have a hilarious discussion about his experiences as the Captain or First Mate of the various ships he has worked on.

He tells of experiences like towing oil rigs, and doing duty as the medical officer. There were burials at sea, and a story about what happens when you are shaving without any clothes on while travelling in rough seas. Henry challenges us to guess how that turned out. There were plenty of other stories but you know how colorful a captain of the ship can be, so Henry couldn't air those stories.  Ha!

In the later part of the show they talk about the times Rob was the Captain of the ship, "Sea Shepherd" and he was also captain of the ship the “Steve Irwin”.

John's an interesting guy...In the past, he was a stunt man appearing on shows such as Days of our lives, Get Shorty, and Will and Grace just to name a few.

Now,  on top of being a cruise director, he wrote a book called The World's Hardest Music Trivia. John was doing music trivia on his ship and he came up with the idea to write a book about it. The book is not just a trivia book, but has a lot of fun behind the scenes information on music from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's.

In Episode 52 our guest was Alan Mindell, who taught us that life begins at seventy.  Alan Mindell’s novel, The Closer, became a bestseller, including being listed on Amazon as the number one paperback in new sports fiction. His new novel, The B Team, about horse racing, also became Amazon`s number one bestselling paperback in new sports fiction.

For Alan, his speaking topic of "Life Begins at Seventy" certainly fits.

Besides writing novels, he also dances regularly in the San Diego area, and works as a tour guide for Friendly Excursions, the tour company he founded more than forty-five years ago.

One of the things that he has been doing and getting great pleasure from lately is conducting beginning creative writing workshops.  Today he gave us some tips on writing a novel or memoir.

Jerry says, "Contrary to what a lot of financial advisors say about how much money you need to retire, I tell people to look at retirement from the opposite direction. When you're near retirement age, what money you have is what you have and there's not much that they can do to change the amount. So look at what you have and decide what kind of retirement you can have. The good news is that when it comes to retiring and living full time in a RV, the price of RV you have doesn't have much to do with how happy you are in retirement."
