Sometimes, simpler is better. And some people are willing to sell everything, walk away from their jobs, and buy a boat to explore the world. That’s what Glen and Julie Bradley did when they decided to retire early. Julie’s book, Escape from the Ordinary, describes how they battled Force 10 storms in the Atlantic Ocean, plied the tiniest of Pacific islands, and sailed everywhere from the Galapagos islands to Tahiti, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, the Caribbean, Peru and more. The couple lived quite an adventure together.
