Retired couple Debbie and Michael Campbell sold everything they owned and traded the comfort of their home for a round-the-world journey

When I was about to retire, Debbie Campbell, 62, told her husband, Michael, 72, who would like to have an adventure. With the kids all grown up, they had nothing to keep them on the couch in their Seattle home.

So, they decided to put their plans on paper: they calculated that, if they sold all their possessions, they could travel around the planet, visit incredible places and still keep the same monthly expenses they had with household expenses.

They then sold everything they had and left some belongings in a warehouse. Soon after, they started a journey in 2013 that saw them visit more than 80 countries and visit at least 250 cities around the world.

They have traveled all over Europe, Turkey, Israel, Russia, Mexico, Africa, Cuba, the Middle East, Central Asia, New Zealand, Australia and many other places staying in homes across Airbnb, since Debbie always liked to cook and prioritized homes with kitchens. The couple often encourage retirees who have resources to travel and thus enjoy the best years of their lives.

The trajectory of Debbie and Michael is all recorded in a blog, the The Senior Nomads, and on its page at Instagram. The Campbells have also written a book, “Yours Keys Our Home” where they narrate the adventures they have lived on each trip and where they describe the feeling that the world is, in fact, one big welcoming neighborhood.
