Have you ever taken a vacation that was so great you never wanted to leave? What if you could figure out a way to stay there for the rest of your life?
For Lee Wachtstetter, that vacation was aboard the Crystal Serenity cruise ship, and she has it all figured out.
“I started frequent cruising. But I got very, very tired of packing and unpacking. So I said, there’s got to be a better way to do this,” Wachtstetter explained.
Mama lee has already experienced the hardship of raising children and traveling. She aims to spend her twilight years relaxing.
“Everything is ‘Been there, done that.’ If I’ve been there and done that, I don’t go off the ship,” she explained.
“And I love it when everybody goes touring. I got the whole ship to myself with all the help.”
For about $175,000 a year, Wachtstetter cruises around to tropical locations without a care in the world. “I think I live a fairy tale existence,” she admitted.
Mama Lee has written a memoir titled “I May Be Homeless, But You Should See My Yacht,” documenting her life of luxurious travels. “It’s not a real life, I realize that. Not everybody does this. But a lot of people could.”
