That is how we got away for a month in SE Asia - we had some friends fly over and stay at our house and have unlimited use of our cars, and all they had to do was hang out with our yellow lab. Of course we live in Maui, and we traveled in winter, so it was easy to talk someone into a free Maui house in mid-winter.

Not sure there income or how much their adventure is costing them but it might be helpful to someone wanting to travel the world full time.
'Nomadic retirees' sell home to travel the world

Carefree travel has long been the province of backpackers, 20-somethings and other free spirits without mortgages, jobs and other worldly concerns.

But if retired couple Lynne and Tim Martin have their way, there will be a new model for the wave of aging baby boomers nearing retirement: Hit the road, travel around the world, and live like locals in cities and villages for extended periods of time, with no permanent home.

Lynne, 73, and Tim, 68, began their adventure in 2010, when they realized they shared a deep desire to travel and yearned for something a bit different for retirement. So soon after they sold their California home and set out to live abroad, one country at a time.

Lynne calls it the "home free" movement, a term she lays claim to coining when she named the blog she created, "Home Free Adventures," to keep family and friends in the loop.

I love the article. I am not sure I would want to cut the cord on something substantial like property but I do wish to travel. I am not sure I would go out and buy their book in order to fund more of their travels too but I don't blame them for shamelessly selling their story. Similar circumstances I might do the same. The article mentions AARP and the travel section they have put together. It is quite helpful and if you have good health and money to travel why not.
