As much as I love traveling, I don’t love airports. The busyness, the long lines, the airport security dude constantly directing me to the body scanner while letting Wanderer waltz on through—it’s just not my thing. But, as it turns out, I just hadn’t been to the right airport. As soon as we landed in Singapore, I had to double-check that were still in the airport and not Disneyland. Why? Because in addition to the normal stuff like a mall, food courts, and lounges, we also found this: An Orchid Garden A Sunflower Garden A Cactus Garden A Water lily Garden A Butterfly […]

“Giddy” isn’t a word I’d use to describe myself, but that’s exactly how I felt. Standing in our Caldera (“Cave View”) balcony over-looking the aquamarine Aegean Sea, I was on the top of the world. The salty smell of the sea, the misty clouds, the sunrise over the cliffs. Who wouldn’t be giddy? And to think we’d almost missed out on all this! Initially, Greece wasn’t even on our radar but thankfully that changed when our host, Luca, in Amsterdam proclaimed “GO TO SANTORINI! JUST GO!” before declaring “LET’S DO A JOINT”! (We quickly learned that Luca only has 2 volumes: silence […]

So the other day as I’m answering emails from some of the wonderful readers of this blog, a message pinged from Jim “The Godfather” Collins to wish us Merry Christmas, to which my reaction was “It’s Christmas?!?” So I opened up a calendar and discovered that I was, in fact, responding to reader mail on Christmas Eve like some kind of workaholic freak! And that just goes to show you that when you get to do what you love every day, those holidays really sneak up on you because really, EVERY day is a holiday. And even though I may […]

Back in 2015, when we blew up our “safe” conventional lives and retired at 31 to travel the world, our friends and ex-coworkers had a few choice words about the whole thing: “You’re going spending 24/7 together?! Are you nuts? You’ll kill each other.” “Travelling the world for a whole year? That’s expensive. What are you going to do when you run out of money?” “Retirement is so boring. You’ll be fleeing back to work in 6 months. That’s what happened during my sabbatical.” The woman who predicted we’d kill each other? She once asked her husband if they could have […]

So the other day, William Shakespeare e-mailed me, saying “hey there FIRECracker, you write pretty well!” Did that really happen? No of course not. Shakespeare’s been dead for 400 years and doesn’t know what an email is. But someone EQUALLY as amazing DID email us: J. L. Collins, author of “The Simple Path to Wealth“, and writer of one of the first FI blogs we followed when we discovered Financial Independence. Since that fateful e-mail, we’ve spoken a few times on Skype, and each time our conversation ended up stretching from 1 hour to 2 and then to 4! I guess that’s what happens when […]
