Listen to the author describe her journey to Rome

Recently, Martha and her husband, John, sat down with “Mike the Wine Guy” on his show, “The Good Life.” The weekly radio program delves into food, wine, travel, and lifestyle stories.

Martha talked about her book “Times New Roman: How We Quit Our Jobs, Gave Away Our Stuff & Moved to Italy” and the background leading up to the decision to leave good-paying jobs and live abroad.

During the program, Martha discusses the origins of their adventure: “…we were both in the same mindset of saving and staying out of debt. And we said ‘We’re not going to touch our retirement funds because that’s just crazy!’… We needed a plan.”

Hear the couple discuss more of their preparations, the move, and what it was like to live overseas and return to the U.S. by clicking here:
