About the Book

Most people dream of early retirement and of travelling to exotic places. This book describes how the author and his wife realized that dream by retiring at fifty years of age and travelled the world on a modest budget. It presents ideas on how the reader can do the same thing. It describes the countries and people who have given the writer a wonderful first ten years of retirement while his friends are still busy working. Humorous anecdotes are incorporated to illustrate the experiences of living and travelling in third world countries.

The book will appeal to a very large market as it focuses on the dreams and aspirations of all those people over forty who would like to retire but who need encouragement to do so. It is an inspiration for its readers to reach their personal goals.

Places described include: Central America, South-East Asia, Australasia and the British Isles. Emphasis is placed on the people encountered and the stories surrounding them. Maps and photographs illustrate the book.
