Two O'Clock on a Tuesday at Trevi Fountain: A Search for an Unconventional Life Abroad
What if you could choose a life of adventure without sacrificing the life you’ve already built?
What's the book about?
In this inspiring memoir—the antidote to the “just quit your job and ditch all your belongings to backpack the world” mentality—a young woman explores how she took calculated risks to follow her dreams: traveling and living abroad without sacrificing stability and comfort.
Helene Sula always knew she wanted to pursue something a little different from a “normal life”—not an outright rejection of the conventional path many of her peers embraced but one that empowered her to experience other cultures and corners of the globe. To lead a stable life and travel the world. To seek adventure and still be happily married.
From skinny-dipping in the icy Baltic Sea and hiking Germany’s storied Black Forest, to wrestling with visa applications and apartment hunting in medieval Heidelberg, Helene shares the realities—both the magical and the everyday—that come with chasing bold dreams and learning that home is where you make it.
If you’ve ever felt stuck in a mundane career or routine and want a fresh start without completely starting over, Helene’s story will prove that you don’t have to uproot your life to find meaning—just have the heart to take a leap.

⭐️ Bonus Chapter
One of my all time favorite chapters in the book. You won't want to miss this. This talks about how I became who I am and what I thought was holding me back.
“I’d spent most of my life trying to fit in—I wanted to be like everyone else. But as I came into my twenties, a sneaking, nagging urge began to niggle at me: How could I leave a legacy? Maybe I didn’t really want to be like everyone else.”
“I liked living a “normal” stable life just fine, thank you, but I couldn’t help wondering if there was more. When you start unraveling the thread of what can be, you realize that the possibilities are endless. The tricky part is figuring out how to keep your spool and thread intact.”

“Helene's story is an important reminder that we don't have to settle, and our dreams are within reach if we're willing to go for them.”
Anna Kloots, New York Times Bestselling Author of Live Your Life and My Own Magic
Rachel Chang, travel and pop culture journalist
“It's rare that a book can provide both escapism and motivation, but that's exactly what Sula's memoir provided for me. Helene is proof you can have an adventurer's soul and also find stability too.”
Taylor Wolfe, author of Birdie and Harlow
