July is the ideal time to read this book. It’s a perfect pick if you are heading to your holiday destination too. It is an inspiring story that makes you to want to pack your stuff and go travel more.
Unfulfilled at her job and unsuccessful in the dating department, Janice MacLeod doodled this question at her desk. Then she decided to make it a challenge.
Over the next few months, with a little math and a lot of determination, she saved up enough to buy two years of freedom in Europe.
But she had only been in Paris for a few days when she met a handsome butcher (with a striking resemblance to Daniel Craig)—and never went home again.
Janice MacLeod takes us with her to Paris on a trip that’s going to last longer than expected.
She has this feeling that her job doesn’t fulfil her anymore and she needs to change something in her life. Is it easy? Ehh, you never know at the start but she made a plan how to save money so she can afford to take a year off and to travel.
Life happens while you make other plans, so instead a year in France Janice falls in love there and as long as I know she is still living in Paris.
She creates fabulously illustrated letters of the city of love and sells them on Etsy to fund her stay there. If you are interested you can still find them. No wonder why she was so successful with them, she is just so talented.
The book is easy going and maybe because aside of reading, travelling has been one of my passions I truly enjoyed the story.
