Hey all, We are going to be away for the next two weeks as we will be speaking at Chautauqua in Greece! Nestled in the base of Mount Olympus near Litochoro, Greece, we are meeting, mingling, and making a new group of lifelong friends! We will be periodically posting updates and pictures on this post, so come back to see what we’re up to. In the meantime, we’ll be delayed in answered comments and e-mails, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t hear from us. We’re busy “Greeking” out and MathingShitUp with our Chautauqua family! Opa! *smashes plate*     […]

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.

So, lately the FIRE community’s been up in arms over the recent episode on Paula Pant’s Afford Anything podcast. In this episode, Paula asks bestselling author and self-proclaimed “Money Matriarch of the World” Suzy Orman the question listeners are dying to know: “What do you think of the FIRE movement?” At the time, while listening to the podcast I was making breakfast. One second, I’m whistling to myself and flipping eggs, the next thing I’m whipping my spatula across the room. But before we get into why, please go to Paula’s podcast and listen to the episode entitled “Why I […]

After my previous posts about the appetizer and main course of Iceland, it’s time for dessert! Jökulsárlón (The Glacial Lagoon): Even though we’d rented a car for the week, I agonized over visiting Jökulsárlón, Iceland’s Crown Jewel. The reason? Jökulsárlón is almost 400 km from Reykjavik, which means, at a speed limit of only 90km/hour,  it would take us almost 5 hours to drive there—each way. I tried looking up places to stay in the city of Vik, half way between, but since it was high season even the least expensive Airbnb cost $300 USD a night and most were […]

Last year around this time, we attended FinCon for the first time, as you’ll remember from this post . That turned out to be a truly memorable experience, since we got to meet and hang out with many of our fellow FI bloggers, who we only knew online, in the flesh. People like my personal hero J.Money, Carl from 1500days, J.D Roth, etc. And the most memorable (and humbling) experience was being filmed for a movie by Emmy-award winning directors Travis Shakespeare and Scott Rieckens . If you’ve ever wondered whether it’s nerve-wracking giving a speech in front of a crowd, let […]

In my last Iceland post, I talked about my first day in Iceland being just an appetizer of what this amazing country has to offer. Are you ready for the main course? Here we go. The Blue Lagoon Ethereal. Exclusive. Expensive Before coming to Iceland, I struggled with spending 8900ISKs or $85 USD each on what (I thought) was the biggest tourist trap of all. But this was The Blue Lagoon! How could we go to Iceland and skip the most well-known attraction of all? Dubbed as “the most impressive wonder of the world” by National Geographic and featured in […]
