Book description

Some people only dream of leaving behind everything that is familiar to them in order to travel the world. Teresa actually did it! For the past five years, she has been leading a very unconventional life.This book is about her world travels and the international house-sitting business that helps to make these travels possible. It is also about making the choice to retire early and finding the courage to reinvent herself.
She not only includes a lot of autobiographical material about her experiences in foreign locations, but also explains in detail how an ordinary person can lead such an adventurous life. Teresa has lived in Spain, Ireland, Prague, Malta, an island in the Dutch Antilles, multiple cities in Mexico, England and Italy. She even lived on a 57-foot boat in a marina in Baja California. Usually, she takes care of homes for up to 90 days. This book is a testament to an alternative lifestyle that supports a different way of looking at money, time, and travel. It incorporates sound advice that is based on first-hand experience. Teresa may very well be the poster girl for how to be adventurous at any age, on any income.


Good luck!

  • Wow, over 2,000 likes on FB, how did you do it and how quickly before you reached the magic number? Think I have a slight insight though since I just shared and took part in your competition :-)

    • Yeah, that’s a lot, we are so happy and it all happened since May 2012 when we started blogging seriously and sharing the stuff with other people. The book is amazing you should try to take the part in the competition to win it :)
