Although the couple adored the idea of running a historical site, neither had the degree or experience to do so. To buy a property that big, they would have to drain their entire savings, and likely take out loans. They would also have to renovate the entire building by hand.

This idea was a far cry from their scientific careers, which cost thousands of Euro to gain a degree for. So was it worth it for the couple to confidently switch gears and tackle a new lifestyle?
