Patricia and Tim ... cruising in Bermuda

5 Minutes with …

Patricia M Entwistle

early retirement and enjoying life!

For La Vida Dulce’s 2nd interview, we are pleased to present Patricia M Entwistle, who we first met while on a volunteer program with Diverbo. Being fellow Canadians, we automatically clicked.  Patricia is a lot of fun and always ready for a new adventure. When Patricia travels to Valencia, Spain we make a point of getting together. Looking forward to catching up again in 2020!

“I am retired but worked as an ESL instructor in Spain and in Canada. I also had a long career working in the insurance industry and now sell cruises for a travel company!  I am loving and enjoying life to the fullest!  Travel is my passion- learning about new countries/destinations, meeting new people and having a wonderful adventure in the process!  I definitely have the travel bug!!”
