A lot of people ask us how we deal with visas as we travel all over the world. But the truth is, for the most part, we don’t. Canada (along with most Western countries) can travel to many other countries visa-free. We just get our passports stamped in at the airport and this is enough to let us stay anywhere from 30 days to 6 months as tourists, depending on the country. And for the most part, this is more than enough since as soon as you cross into another country, you then get stamped into THAT country and your […]

FIRECracker is Canada's youngest retiree. She used to live in one of the most expensive cities in Canada, but instead of drowning in debt, she rejected home ownership. What resulted was a 7-figure portfolio, which has allowed her and her husband to retire at 31 and travel the world. Their story has been featured on CBC, the Huffington Post, CNBC, BNN, Business Insider, and Yahoo Finance. To date, it is the most shared story in CBC history and their viral video on CBC's On the Money has garnered 4.5 Million views.

One of my most memorable experiences in Poland was visiting Auschwitz. To be perfectly honest, I almost didn’t go, knowing how I felt after visiting The Killing Fields in Cambodia. I knew I’d have nightmares for days or even weeks afterwards. But I knew I couldn’t miss this important piece of history. After all, as horrifying as the Holocaust was, and as much as we all want to forget it, the only way we can prevent history from repeating itself is to remember it. Not going would be an insult to the memory of all those innocent victims who suffered at […]

I should be a Trump supporter. I was on a Skype chat with Jim “The GodFather” Collins a few weeks ago when I half-jokingly said this, and JLCollins responded with an incredulous “Excuse me?” “Okay, I’m actually not,” I replied sheepishly. “But on paper, I should be. Every policy he’s actually signed into law (i.e. the ONLY one) made early retirees like us richer. ” JLCollins laughed. “OK, why don’t you write that into an article and post it in your blog. I’m sure your readers will get a KICK out of you saying that.” So I did. Here’s why […]

This year, we did our first ever portfolio withdrawal. It’s been a wild few years to say the least. In the first year of our retirement, the oil crash of 2015 happened which screwed our portfolio over and forced us to execute one of our backup plans: eating into our cash cushion. Then in 2016 things recovered as an Obama-led economic recovery took hold and ushered us all into an era of safe, stable prosperity. Then Trump got elected. Which briefly made the Dow plunge 500 points, but then inexplicably, start going up. And up and up it’s gone. Against […]

What can walk 10kms, use their own hiking poles, without whining, bitching or complaining? Little Polish kids. That’s right. Specifically, tiny Polish kids as young as 6-years-old, happily trotting alongside us. My feet were starting to blister, I was sweating, and it seemed like I’d been walking forever, but I didn’t see a single kid complain. Most kids I know would’ve been screaming bloody murder by now. Turns out the Poles hike so often with their kids, the kids even have their own hiking poles. I had no idea that in Zakopane Poland, hiking is basically a national sport. We […]
