WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT HOW TO MAKE BIG MOVES
Alison, New Zealand
Extremely readable, this book is a treasure trove of useful tips for anyone moving country, or indeed just moving home. Writing from experience, Sara details every pitfall possible and how to avoid them. The inclusion of delightful photos personalises the book. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone moving (or dreaming of moving) that they read this handbook. Absolutely excellent.
Julia, Founder of WiFi Tribe
This is the perfect book for anyone who’d like to start a new life in a new place and is overwhelmed by all the tasks that need to be done. Sara is giving you a hand in facing all those challenges and helps structure your relocation or work abroad. I’m in love with those lists she created, resources, required reading, apps you can use... they are so helpful and make it so much easier to find your way through the bureaucracy jungle. I would love to have had this book before I started my digital nomad life.
Maggie, Remote Year
As a millennial traveling abroad for a year, I’m joining a new community, city AND country every month. Sara’s book has been hugely valuable to me, particularly the aspects that touch on how to cope with the stress of it all. I loved reading the personalized stories from fellow travellers. I would recommend this book as a MUST-READ to any fellow traveller making a big move!
