Couple Embraces Nomadic Retirement

Living out of a suitcase may not be your ideal type of retirement, but for two retirees, it’s paradise on earth.

Four years ago, Lynne and Tim Martin decided to sell everything they own and start a global journey together. They sold their house, gave away their belongings and set out on an adventure that has led them from California to Portugal, Mexico, Morocco and beyond.

Lynne wrote a book, “Home Sweet Anywhere,” in which she details her and her husband’s globetrotting experiences.

The Martins join Here & Now’s Robin Young from their apartment in Paris, where they now reside, to talk about their retirement and living life without borders.
