First post-ER trip

I FIREd three years ago, aged 50; DW joined me in June, aged 51. We're celebrating her milestone and our August anniversary by leaving next week for a month to Puerto Rico (actually mostly Vieques, a Puerto Rican island). We've got a solid plan to rest, walk, hike, eat, sunbathe, swim, play, and read, but would welcome any recommendations for Puerto Rico, Vieques, or Culebra.

I have a few trips planned myself, and I am not quite FIRE'd yet. I want to hit the ground running. Nothing out of the USA for now, although a cruise may be in the works.

I even have a couple of pre-FIRE'd trips planned to take away some of the pain of OMY.

Gone are the days of using vacation days to stay at home and work on a different project to build capital, or take a class. It's time to start enjoying life without worrying about Monday morning...
