About Lynne and Tim

Lynne und Tim Marten - US. Amerikaner die um die Welt reisenIn 2011, we sold our house in Central California’s wine country, gave away the furniture, and stuffed our art, clothes and small treasures into a 10 x 15 storage unit. We said goodbye to our surprised children and quizzical friends and lived for almost five years in rented apartments and houses internationally, putting down new roots one country at a time.

We had no property taxes, roof repairs or home insurance, so all of our spendable income was used to fund our new way of life. We travel light, have an appetite for new experiences, the savvy and flexibility to make ourselves at home in almost any situation.

We have lived in Mexico, Argentina. Turkey, France, Italy, England, Germany, Portugal, and Morocco and are currently enjoying our new house while we plan our next adventure.  We built it using all we learned about vacation rentals and when we’ve finished decorating we’ll rent it and be off!

Thanks so much for looking in on our website.  Please let us hear from you.  We love to hear other peoples’ stories!!!
