Having done it (retired) three previous times, I've found that I'm not really very good at retiring. But this time, it's for keeps. I hope to do some volunteer work, but otherwise it's just rest, reflection, and writing.
I have my one-way ticket from Tbilisi, arriving St Croix April 12. Reserved a car until I can buy one. Making condo arrangements for a week or two until I can find a long-term lease. Giving away all my sweaters, coats, gloves, and anything else that won't fit into two checked bags and one carry-on. Making the rounds of teary farewells. (You make a lot of friends in post-Soviet Georgia in seven years.)
So after three pre-move visits, I'm ready for the real move.
Thanks to everyone on this forum for the excellent advice you all have given over the past few years!
See you soon!
