Alwyne and Derek Richardson are a Virginia Beach, Virginia couple with a severe case of wanderlust - and retirement has given them the time to attempt to cure it. Derek was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1939 and immigrated to the US in 1948. He graduated from the SUNY Maritime College in 1961 and sailed for three years as Third Mate on merchant ships (freighters). After leaving the maritime industry, he eventually entered the world of computers and retired as a Systems Analyst in 2001. Alwyne was born in 1943 on Long Island, NY. She graduated from Marietta College in Ohio in 1965, and before and after raising three children also worked in the computer field. They met on the job in 1988, and in 1994 traveled to Glyfada, Greece and were married. That same year they moved to Virginia where they are visited often by their 5 children and 7 grandchildren. After retiring in 2001they embarked on a remarkable 88-day around the world trip on a German container ship. Since then they have been on safari in Africa, and are planning a circumnavigation of South America next.
