All You Need is Luck is the very funny story of an ordinary couple who decided to take a chance and do something extraordinary which others only dream about. Sixteen years ago Frank and Maria Nelson traded in excellent jobs, financial security, the safety net of family and friends, plus deep roots in their local community, for a nomadic lifestyle few people ever experience. All You Need is Luck recounts their first two years on the road after saying goodbye to their home in New Zealand. During this time they lived and worked in Australia, England and the United States besides visiting Indonesia, France and Thailand. Leaving their comfort zone thousands of miles behind, they worked at American summer camps in Vermont and Cape Cod; at hospitals, a university and other jobs in Melbourne and Brisbane; and looked after scores of pampered pets in the poshest of homes all over England. This amusing adventure will appeal to anyone with a sense of humour but especially those who sometimes wonder what it would be like just to take off...and keep going.
