Have you ever dreamt of quitting your cushy job and starting a new life halfway around the world to follow your passion?

Jessica Fox, a Nasa employee in Los Angeles, decided one day to move to Scotland to live in a used bookshop.

Wigtown couldn't offer vegan burritos and hipster clothing stores but has more than a dozen bookstores for its 800 residents by the sea.

Jessica told BBC News her story of instincts, falling in love, and road bumps along the way.
