Paradise Rescued is a memoir by a British expat called David Stannard. It’s a gorgeous story about how David bought a holiday house in rural France, then bought the surrounding fields to save them from property developers before accidentally creating a vineyard and boutique wine called Paradise Rescued.
It’s a crazy, beautiful story about what can happen if you say yes rather than no to life’s opportunities. It’s about what happens if you make unexpected decisions and go boldly where you’ve never been before.
I love David’s story and it got me thinking about how owning a vineyard in France must be something many people fantasise about. Spoiler alert! Owning a French vineyard isn’t all about sipping fine wine with the locals while you survey the view from your terrace. Find out more in the Paradise Rescued website and book.
Still we are here today to talk about boring old reality. We are here to fantasise! With that in mind what’s your fantasy lifestyle or exotic travel fantasy? I’d love to know!
My fantasy lifestyle is to own a wildlife rescue center in Central America where I can heal and raise sick or abandoned monkeys, toucans and ocelot before successfully releasing them back into the wild. Of course I’m sure it would be endless hard work staying up all night to feed the baby monkeys and change their poopy nappies! Never-the-less that is my fantasy.
Although sailing the seas in my super yacht could be fun too…
What is your fantasy lifestyle or exotic travel fantasy? Please tell!
