About us


Hanno and I met in Queensland, married in his homeland of Germany and now live on the Sunshine Coast, which is on the east coast of Australia.  We were married for nearly 43 years and have two amazing sons and three grandchildren.

Hanno died on 25 May, 2022.

We chose to retire early and live well on less than I ever thought possible.  It's not difficult and it's not deprivation, far from it, days are enriching, productive and meaningful.  I hope you enjoy reading about our simple life here in Queensland.
