About us


Hanno and I met in Queensland, married in his homeland of Germany and now live in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast, which is on the east coast of Australia.  We have been married for nearly 40 years and have two amazing sons and three grandchildren.

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