"This terrific book gives hope to everyone who desires the fun and freedom of dropping everything and hitting the road to foreign ports." - Jeri Sedlar, co-author of Don't Retire, REWIRE!


"Nearly every page has some crack piece of travel wisdom ... an accessible, inspiring journey." -Kirkus

The Sell-Your-House, See-the-World Life!

Reunited after thirty-five years and wrestling a serious case of wanderlust, Lynne and Tim Martin decided to sell their house and possessions and live abroad full-time. They've never looked back. With just two suitcases, two computers, and each other, the Martins embark on a global adventure, taking readers from sky-high pyramids in Mexico to Turkish bazaars to learning the contact sport of Italian grocery shopping. But even as they embrace their new home-free lifestyle, the Martins grapple with its challenges, including hilarious language barriers, finding financial stability, and missing the family they left behind. Together, they learn how to live a life-and love-without borders.

From glittering Georgian mansions in Ireland to the windswept coasts of Portugal, this euphoric, inspiring memoir is more than a tale of second chances. Recently featured on NPR's Here and Now, as well as in the New York Times, Home Sweet Anywhere is a road map for anyone who dreams of turning the idea of life abroad into a reality.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A memoir, not a " how to " travel manual 18. April 2014
Von Michele Florence - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
A very easy and entertaining read. Fun and light. Great descriptions of a variety of countries, and travel tales the author describes with delight. However, after seeing an interview with Lynne and Tim on an early morning news show, discussing their book and essentially plugging it as a " how to" book, I am disappointed. When asked how one can afford to travel the world, Tim stated "it's all in the arithmetic". His implication that one sells their house and all their belongings and then from that figures out their travel budget is misleading. Describing themselves as " not wealthy people" , and then releasing information as to their monthly investment withdrawals, it is clear Lynne and Tim are enjoying a retired lifestyle reserved for those with a finer appreciation of life and the means to do so. I purchased this book in hopes to learn how to do something similar, but instead realized I only contributed to the financial well being of a delightful couple who live in a different world from me. I have since found free and much more useful "how to" advice on the Internet.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Some Good, Some Not-So-Good 26. April 2014
Von CarryOn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
On the good side:

It's a decent encouragement device to show that it is possible to live home-free in retirement. It serves as a benign jumping-off point for people considering the lifestyle, mentioning things to take into consideration, like healthcare, paying bills, packing. It also offers a high-level introduction to different locations around the world, enough so to prompt further research.

On the not-so-good side:

The book lacks any real detail beyond the most basic advice. It contains no real guidance or resources for what can be some pretty daunting and complex issues. Take the question of electronic devices. Beyond saying that they left the store with a couple of iPhones, a couple of laptops, and a bag of adapters, the author offers no further information. A little detail about data plans, or how their option compared to using local devices would have been much appreciated.

The narrative is flimsy, filled with overused cliches and, frankly, excruciatingly boring at times. Conversations sound forced and stilted. Overall, it reads like a "What I Did On My Summer Vacation" creative writing exercise.

The author goes out of her way to portray her and her husband as middle-class, unassuming, unsophisticated travelers. Just a few pages into the book, it becomes apparent, however, that this couple is very affluent, which makes their decision to live on-the-go much easier. At times, the author appears to be truly out of touch with how average/typical middle-class Americans live. We don't all have friends who live in castles or own luxury properties, complete with house staff.

There seems to be a fair sprinkling of false modesty presented throughout the text. The author continually tries to paint herself as surprised to be attending a party with this-or-that internationally-renowned something-or-other, or that she is good enough to really write an article for a national newspaper, but it rang false for me.

All that said, I think there's a great potential for a companion piece of sorts, something that provides the details so obviously absent here. A book that lists different insurance companies that provide international coverage, that lists multiple sites for rental properties abroad, that describes exactly how they handle paying bills, what data plan(s) they find best for them, exactly how they handle mail would be a wonderful sibling to this.

3.0 von 5 Sternen not 5 star 16. April 2014
Von "seeker" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
First of all, I am noticing all the five star ratings that appear on Amazon lately..used to be that was reserved for something very special.. while this book was an enjoyable read and an intriguing possibility for retirement, the caliber of writing did not deserve a five star rating.. For those of you who do not have a partner to travel with or the funds to travel in this manner, I recommend Tales of a Female Nomad..by Rita Golden Gelman..that may deserve five stars.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Taking the Plunge 15. April 2014
Von takingadayoff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Home Sweet Anywhere doesn't fit neatly into any category. It isn't a memoir, it isn't a how-to guide, it isn't quite a travel narrative. And yet, it works. At least it did for me, and I suspect that whether you like it will have a lot to do with what you expect or want from the book. I was looking for a book about the experiences of a couple who gave up their house and started traveling the world without a fixed address. It's the sort of thing that will work so differently for everyone who does it that you can't lay down a set of steps to follow. But it's helpful to know what worked and what didn't work for one couple.

As a travel memoir, it's a little slow since most of what passes for adventure in the Martins' life is shopping for groceries, taking walks, going to movies, eating out. It's the sort of thing you'd do on a relaxing vacation, or in your own neighborhood.

Lynne Martin addresses many of the concerns that she and her husband had when they first considered giving up their home to become nomads. What if they got sick? How would they keep in contact with their children and grandchildren? Would they be able to afford this way of living? Talking to others made them aware of other concerns -- visa restrictions, packing light, expatriate communities for when they became homesick.

I especially liked how Martin included the mistakes they made and what went wrong and how they dealt with it. Sometimes they quarreled (but not often) and sometimes they just got tired. They found out that they didn't hate cruises the way they were afraid they would (repositioning cruises across the Atlantic were their primary way of saving money on the long legs). And Lynne Martin even began a new career in her sixties, as a travel blogger, author, and expert on living without a fixed home.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Somewhat of a disappointment. 3. Mai 2014
Von The Constant Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I had been following the Martins since I stumbled onto their WSJ article and was looking forward to the book. Unfortunately it just seemed to be a re-hash of their blog with a few more details added. It was light on content and quality and seemed misleading in some cases. Lynne and Tim are not inexperienced travelers on a budget. Quite the opposite. Both of them have lived overseas extensively in the past and it seemed the only locations they enjoyed were places where they lived previously. They seem to know lots of people who let them stay in castles and villas for reduced costs or as house-sitters. Good for them! But most of us don't have those connections.

I hate to criticize writing style, but I did find some things mildly annoying. There was an overuse of adjectives that sometimes seemed to imply something different than the writer intended. For instance they were napping and woke up "alarmed" at the call to prayers over the loudspeakers in Istanbul. Alarmed? Well, maybe. Also some of the language seemed condescending of locals and pretentious. I agreed with some of the previous reviewers who got the impression of false modesty. Half of the book seemed to be about Lynne getting a book contract and her trials and tribulations dealing with that.

On the upside, their situation has changed my views of life after retirement and we intend to do something like this but probably on a more modest level with maybe a little more involvement in local life rather than only seeking out people just like us.
