Welcome To The KirkTori Story!

Kirk and Tori Tell Their Story Of Early Retirement, Living On A Cruise Ship, While Managing A Vegan Lifestyle.

Kirk and Tori have always loved to travel. They had difficulty with accepting that as people age, generally, they are not in good enough shape to really experience travel and to see the world.

This brings us to the KirkTori Story.

This is a blog about how Kirk and Tori decided to retire early (they are both in their early 50's); sell their house in Canada and mainly live on cruises ships WHILE maintaining their vegan, WFPB lifestyle!

As a reader of this blog, you will see pictures, video, and documentation on their travels across the world; you will see how they eat in environments not typically catered to the vegan lifestyle; and you will witness tips and tricks about traveling without a "home" to go to!
