This post was supposed to be about one of my favourite countries in the world, second only to Thailand (hint: it has lots of robots), but since a few readers asked about Central/South America, I’m going to fast forward this week just to give you a taste… *** After going back home to visit family for Christmas, we wondered where we should go next. It was tempting to go back to Asia, but since we had a busy year ahead of us (going to conferences, speaking at the Chautaquas, and attending my best friend’s wedding) keeping us in (or near) […]

Whenever we go home to visit, there’s one type of person who annoys me the most. And no, it’s not the Home-Boners who keep telling us we’re idiots for not buying a house. By living an awesome life in early retirement, I’ve already proven them wrong. All I need to do is ignore their shitty “advice”, sit back, and watch their heads explode. It’s super entertaining. You should try it sometime. Anyhoo… So the type of people who piss me off the most when we go back home are… Parents. Specifically nosy parents who complain incessantly about all the work […]

Update: We recently participated in a Roundup on www.fromcentstoretirement.com. Check it out: http://www.fromcentstoretirement.com/roundup-one-early-retirement-money/ If I had been apprehensive about Vietnam before, all my fear and scepticism evaporated once we visited these three cities: HOI AN We first came to Hoi An in search of the World’s Best Banh Mi sandwich, as featured on Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown.” And sure, I also vaguely remember someone mentioning Hoi An as being famous for custom tailored clothing (as soon as the words “clothing” and “shopping” were uttered, my eyes glazed over and I stopped listening), but I don’t remember much about those details. Anyway, back […]

Once we started travelling, we realized the best way to gather intel about places to visit is to simply ask other travellers. And 90% of the time, their recommendations are spot on. So you can imagine our disappointment when, over and over, after asking about Vietnam, we got these unanimous responses: 1) You will get ripped off 2) It’s dirty 3) The food isn’t as good as I thought it would be The biggest blow was this article, written by our budget travel hero, Nomadic Matt: Why I’ll Never Return to Vietnam We almost skipped Vietnam all together, but his wise […]

Hey everyone! Today we have a BIG announcement about our upcoming Chautauqua in the UK, but first a little background. Many years ago when we first started working Wanderer picked up a book from the library he had heard rave reviews about. It was a book called Your Money or Your Life. Your Money or Your Life is considered by many in the FI community to be the original book that started the entire FI movement. This book was the first time I had ever heard the term “Financial Independence” at all. The core concept of this book that I took away […]
