Most people slow down when they retire but Des Gettinby’s life has never been so busy or exciting,
When his wife, Barbara, suggested a holiday traveling through Southeast Asia for 4 months, Des jumped at the opportunity,
To make things more interesting they decided to set some conditions : •Minimum luggage so traveling would be light and easy •A budget of $50 per day for 2 people,
They had heard young backpackers could do it, so why couldn’t they? •No plans, no bookings, just flights in and out,
Des humorously retells their fantastic adventure,
The author provides tips on how to easily find comfortable accommodation with en-suite for around $15 per night,
Discover the best places to visit, which bus, train or plane to catch and how to make bookings and save lots of money,
The narrative makes it all sound easy – and it was,
The result : two leaner, fitter and healthier people, still enjoying being together! Along the way, Des and Barb met many interesting characters, young and old, all willing to share their knowledge and friendship,

“What a great book,
A delightful narrative filled with useful facts,
Great life tips and lessons for everyone, even those not contemplating the kind of ‘pack and go’ travelling that Des and Barb are doing,
Budget Life Secrets? Getting out of our comfort zone is liberating,
We should all do things that scare us (even if just a bit) more often,
That is the key here,

I particularly enjoyed Des’ brief musing on racial differences (p141) in Asia,
We can all learn from this,

By the end of the journey (chapter 21) my head was full of questions,
Lo and behold, chapters 22-31 answer most, if not all of these,
Not in a check list kind of way,
Helpful ideas that will enhance the journey you take and help make it your own,

Buy the book,
Enjoy the sing song through some wonderful places with some great people,
Reading it before bed, I found myself dreaming of cute guest houses, crowded mini vans and cold beer on the beach,

Highly recommended,
