About the author:
Tom Marshall is a retired US Army Colonel and his wife Elysee owned an insurance agency before they sort of retired moved to Naples, Florida in 2001. They have yet to spend a summer there. BUT, unlike their neighbors, do not own a second home. Instead they travel to and rent what they call their "Love Nest" or temporary second home usually in a different place each year. This has taken them live their summers in sequence in: Ireland, Carmel, Ca. (3 times), Australia & New Zealand, Slovenia, Estonia, Annapolis Md., Boothbay Harbor, Maine, Camden, Maine (also 3 times) and, as witnessed in this book, dividing 17 weeks between Rome, Paris and London.
Tom has written and lectured on the advantages of this life-style explained in his book, Make The World Your Second Home. The cost savings are large. The adventure is obvious. The ease of not owning provides the freedom to enjoy life. If you are a spirited, healthy and active, independent and engaged Boomer you owe it to yourself to read this book as part of your retirement decision-making.

Our Summer in Europe

The Marshall's Capital Idea

Authored by Mr. Tom Marshall

This travel journal is the seventh book in a series by Tom Marshall describing experiences he and his wife Elysee have had during their summer's away from home. Tom and Elysee practice and indorse a lifestyle captured in the phrase of another of Tom's books, MAKE THE WORLD YOUR SECOND HOME.

Although residing in retirement in Naples, Florida for the past fourteen years, Tom and Elysee have yet to spend a summer there. Instead they live in a different place each year, renting as an option to owning a second home.

In the previous fourteen years they have stayed in Ireland, Australia/New Zealand, Carmel, California, Slovenia, Annapolis, Md., Estonia, Boothbay Harbor, Camden Maine and in 2013 Western Europe's three major capitals Rome, Paris and London. The summer of 2013 broke with the practice of renting in one place for the entire summer. Instead The Marshall's rented for seven week in Rome, six weeks in Paris and five weeks in London, with stop over in Ireland folded in.

In this book Tom describes the activities and events they encountered and participated in, several day trips taken to places of interest nearby, and excursions further afield of several days or more. The book is complimented with many photographs, all of them taken by Tom.

Any reader contemplating an extended visit to Europe would benefit from reading this book, it provided an excellent example of contemporary Rome, Paris and London but, most importantly it testifies to the BIG idea Tom promotes, to Make the World Your Second Home by renting, instead of buying one
