Discover Clever Strategies for Downshifting

After close to 25 years in public education, I took the plunge and retired two years ago at the age of 49. Since then, I have been enjoying a well-earned rest and some great overseas travel. I took a short-term contract in Vienna and spent six months living in the Austrian capital while taking trips to Slovakia, Italy, and Spain. My wife, Patti, and I enjoyed concerts at the Musikverein…touring the Hofburg Palace…visiting the local vineyards where wonderful Zweigelt red wine is produced…and of course sampling the world famous Sacher Torte chocolate cake at its birthplace, the Hotel Sacher.
