About Us

hollygiles001Welcome to our Modern Snowbirds Blog!

We’re Carter and Holly.  We decided to quit the rat race and retire early (when we were 45 and 50 years old).  We started a page on Facebook just for us to serve as a diary for our decisions, travel adventures, and many many mistakes.  That morphed into sharing our Facebook page with friends and family.  And, now we’re documenting everything in our Modern Snowbirds blog.

We’ll use this blog to share our experiences with early retirement, living the snowbird lifestyle, traveling across the US, and making a little money from side hustles.

Don’t forget to follow us on our other social media channels.  We’re active on Instragram and Facebook.
