My last job was chef at a corporate retreat center in northern California. I did that for 15 ears and then decided to take a year off work and travel. That was about 3 years ago and am still traveling, scuba diving, hiking, photographing and writing. I even still occasionally cook, ha! I guess you could say I am 'temporarily' retired and greatly enjoying that position.
I am also a landlord. That makes me an excellent tenant because I take care of a property as I would my own or would want my tenant to do.
