I recently read a University of Virginia study that says introverts prefer mountains while extroverts prefer beaches. This got me thinking. As a kid, talking to a stranger made me break out in hives and going to a party was hell. I was painfully shy. If you’d given me the option of hibernating in the mountains or partying it up on a beach, I’d have gladly picked the former.  This changed as I got older. I’m no longer terrified by strangers and parties are actually fun! Coincidentally, I also learned how to scuba dive and I now love beaches as much […]

Today, I’m super excited to introduce y’all to my friend Clover, over at SimplyCloverLiving.com. Clover and I met at last year’s Chautauqua, and we immediately clicked. Not only did we both grow up in Canada, we had to deal with the pressures of living in a high cost city with a crazy housing market, and both of us got bit with the travel bug! But while I slogged away at my engineering job for a decade, hit FI, and then started travelling the world, Clover had a much, much faster solution that let her do it even sooner than me, […]

Ever since we started exploring Europe, I’ve wanted to find a place that had the unique combination of warm weather, beaches, hiking, and castles. Luckily we didn’t have to look for long. That place, my friends, is Malaga, Spain. When we arrived in Malaga, we were immediately greeted by sunshine, oceanside views, and of course, that famous Andalusian friendliness and hospitality. Our Airbnb host thoughtfully left helpful little notes all over the apartment anticipating our every need. (“extra blankets in here, just in case you get chilly”, “an extra heater in case you need it”, “bought some groceries for you […]

  One of best things about early retirement is having the time to read books. Back when I was working, it used to take me a whole month to get through a single book, and even then I’d usually get so distracted I’d just quit a third of the way through.  Now I’m able to read way more books, but what I’ve discovered is that I have a really short attention span–especially when it comes to finance books. And it’s become exceedingly rare for me to find voices in the personal finance space that I can connect to.  Which is […]

Nowadays, an around-the-world flight can cost as little as 26,000 miles or $1500 USD and takes less than a week. But back in 1519, circumventing the globe required 3 whole years and cost millions in today’s dollars. But that didn’t stop Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who became the first person to circumnavigate the world. With financing from the Spanish government, he set sail on his trip of discovery with five ships from Seville, consisting of a crew of 260 men. Knowing that they would be facing all sorts of hardships like hunger, storms, and scurvy, Magellan wanted to make sure […]
