non-fiction in Hardcover edition that was published by Springboard Press on April 29, 2008 and has 272 pages.
Explore it on Goodreads or Amazon.
A non-fictional look at examining where you truly want to live whether you’re starting life all over again, need a break from your existing life, or you want a new start. For the zoomers, the ruppies, the huddlers, and the boomerangs.
Corcoran breaks it down nicely — she adds a test to determine what type of living you would prefer, and I found it reasonably accurate. Except that I was attracted to three of the types. Knowledge is power!
The book includes websites and cautions, suggestions on places which offer particular amenities, lists of particular concerns from buying real estate in a foreign country to warnings on determining if this change is right for you. VocationVacations, house exchanges, condotels, ocean living, family compounds, cohousing, communes, trailers, narrow boats to aging in place. I can’t imagine what Corcoran could possibly have left out.
The Cover and Title
I do live this cover with its background of a road map and a huge wave of a yellow and blue billboard proclaiming the title and its authors.
The title is also perfect as it discusses the multiple options available to retirees and people interested in making a new start on life as you read your way to Nextville — the next place you want to live.
