On a budget, retirees sell it all to travel the world – you can too!

Tim and Lynne Martin are two retirees with a truly inspiring story. Last year, they sold nearly all of their possessions – including their home – and set out to see the world on a limited budget.

Lynne’s master plans have already brought the couple to several European countries. Although this may sound like a hectic lifestyle for retirees, Lynne typically books an apartment for a month or two at a time, allowing them to enjoy a leisurely stay and truly discover the destination like locals. (See my previous post on AirBnB apartment rentals here).

In this article, Lynne shares the ins-and-outs of their atypical retirement, including how they afford their adventurous lifestyle on a small budget.

Thanks to The Wall Street Journal, Yahoo! Finance and Lynne Martin for sharing this article.
