“The saddest people are those who don’t know what they want” – Larry from the “Newness” movie. I don’t know how many of you have seen the movie “Newness” on Netflix. I’m guessing not many since it’s a movie about swingers (and no I’m not talking about dancers from the 1920s). We watched it only because we have friends in the swinger community (No. Not us, FRIENDS. FRIENDS!).   Anyhoo, so, basically the premise of this movie is about two millennials who use an online dating app (Tinder anyone?) to hook up. This happened after they both had crappy one-night […]

At every Chautauqua we always have a certain number of reluctant attendees which we affectionally call “Drag-Along Spouses.” We call them that because that’s precisely what they are: spouses of the FIRE enthusiast, who get dragged along, and are often deeply skeptical about spending an entire week with a bunch of money nerds geeking out over spreadsheets. This year’s was no different in that there were a number of Drag-Along Spouses present, but one thing that was different was the level of skepticism in those Drag-Along Spouses. One attendee in particular was apparently sent here by his spouses’ family who was convinced […]

I thought Romeo and Juliet was the most tragic love story I’d ever heard. But then we went to Coimbra, Portugal, and discovered the story of Pedro and Inês. In 1340, Prince Pedro was betrothed (aka “forcibly married”) to Princess Constance of Spain. Back then marriages were less about love and more about king and queens pawning off their kids in an exchange for political alliances. And King Alfonzo wanted his son Pedro to produce a heir that’s half Portuguese, half Spanish so prevent their asses from being invaded. This loveless marriage of convenience would’ve been fine, except Princess Constance […]

“Ultimately, we would not have quit our jobs, sold all of our stuff and became perpetual world travellers if not for the inspiration of Kristy and Bryce. I highly encourage this book to everyone that wants to regain financial control over the life. It has been life changing for us so will it be for you!” – Mr. NomadNumbers After putting 2 years of work into writing Quit Like a Millionaire, getting reviews like this is my favourite part of book publishing. Sure, it’s exhilarating watching your book rocket up the Amazon charts and the crazy media frenzy, but that’s […]

Phew, what a crazy couple of weeks it’s been. I kinda knew that launching a book would be a lot of work, but I was NOT expecting this! That being said, it’s the most wonderful kind of craziness I’ve ever been through, and we’ll write about what that experience has been like in a future post. The other day in between giving a radio interview and going on TV, Wanderer turned to me and said “Hey, remember when we used to be bloggers?” I was like “Oh yeah. Those were simpler times.” So I’m going to TRY to kind of […]
