Reunited in love after 35 years and suffering from a serious case of pre-retirement wanderlust, Lynne and Tim Martin made a life-altering decision: They sold their house and possessions and hit the road to live internationally full-time. Now tethered to nothing but their suitcases, each other, and their next exotic location, they've never looked back. From sky-high pyramids in Mexico to monkeys in Marrakech, this delightful, inspiring memoir is a romantic tale of derring-do for grown-ups and a road map for anyone who dreams of turning the idea of life abroad into a reality.

What was most disappointing about Lynne Martin’s story?

I suppose when you read travel books you want culture and information. Excitement and funny antidotes. The title and description are promising. The book is boring. Big challenges include rude service and an apartment with no AC during a heat wave...riveting stuff...Imagine your elderly neighbor telling you they went to exotic and interesting places full of culture and adventure and they told you all about their supper...
