Millionaires life on 50 pounds

I remember a link to a story about a doctor who stopped working sold his apartment and bought a boat and sailed around Europe. I think the title was similar to what I wrote above. Does anyone know the name or can get me a link.

Re: Millionaires life on 50 pounds

The 200 Millionaire by Weston Martyr There are several old CF threads which mention/cover it. Though often enough it can be found online in PDF form. Which, if someone knows where to find such a link unabridged, it would help. As I'm not sure if this one is the full text or not.
The £200 Millionaire

A few of the CF thread links are below.

Re: Millionaires life on 50 pounds

"Voyaging on a Small Income" by Annie Hill has the story in it. It is the full text, i have the origonal in a book of short stories by Weston Martyr, out of print now. Annie Hill's book is really very good in itself.

It's also extracted in quite abridged form in Alan Villiers “Of Ships And Men”
