Jekyll Island...

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams...

Always exciting when we can combine work with a little leisure time.  Arvid works
and I get to enjoy the sights of a new place.  Could not be better.

All day long Arvid is in a trading meeting.  In the evenings I join him and together we
see what else we can trade.  My favorite time is the evenings when I get to do some
 trading myself.  I have trade before for vanilla scented candles, jewelry from
 Peru and a few other miscellaneous items.  The fun is in the haggling.

Today I get to see a little of Jekyll Island.  Jekyll is a barrier island sitting just off the coast
 of southern Georgia about 40 miles (64km) north of the Florida border and about 90 miles
 south of Savannah. It is famous for being one of the Golden Isles of Georgia
historically inhabited or frequented by America’s most √©lite families, 
including the Rockefellers, Morgans, and Vanderbilts.

More than just turtle eggs have hatched on this historic island. More than 100 years ago the 
biggest banking magnates in America (comprising 25% of the world’s wealth) came to 
the unspoiled soft sand beaches of Jekyll Island where they gave birth to The Federal Reserve.

With whatever we do, I feel as if our life is an adventure, and ii am just happy to 
discover where it leads and what new excitement awaits us, being on the road, or at home.
It is just a way of life for us.  We live it, we experience it and we savor every moment like our last.

Good morning everyone, remember, remember life is either a great adventure or nothing.

There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. 
There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open...
