Bernard, 61, retired at 57. I love travelling and meeting people. I have worked in 3 fairly different fields: air traffic control for 8 years, then I had restaurants for 5 years and finally I have been in sales for over 25 years, either as a sales representative or various levels of sales management.
With my life partner Dominique, we bought this beautiful house on the river side in 2005. Now that all of our six kids (3 each) are on their own, we wish to rent the "rez de jardin" apartment to short term renters. We figure that we can use this additonal income to help us travel more while giving us the opportunity to meet people from around the world.
