The world woke up this morning to a new reality: Russia has attacked the Ukraine and war has broken out. We’re in Europe right now, but thankfully we’re nowhere near this conflict so we’re not the ones in danger. But a friend of ours is, and we’re very very worried about him. We first met Johnny FD at the Digital Nomad conference in Chiang Mai back in 2020. We interviewed him on this very blog, and he interviewed us for his podcast. Our conversations centred around digital nomadism, remote work, and Financial Independence. Never in a million years did I […]

MAN, people really hate working. Coming out of the pandemic and two years of on-again-off-again government-imposed lockdowns, you would think that people would be chomping at the bit to go back to work as the economy re-opens and eternally grateful for whatever job they’re fortunate enough to have. Nope. Especially in the industries that were heavily affected by COVID like travel, health care, and restaurant work, workers are being asked to do more, with less pay, and with zero concern for their safety and well-being. All this has fuelled what the media has dubbed the Great Resignation, with record numbers […]

Back in 2014, the year before I quit my job to travel the world, there was only one picture on my phone I’d taken that whole year, and this was it: This was a bacon latte I had at a board game café in Toronto, on a rare weekend where I wasn’t working overtime or writing my first novel, finally spending time with friends. It wasn’t the best latte I’d ever had, but as far as interesting things happening in my life, this strange, confusing concoction (meat and coffee, together at last!) was it. Life was a blur back then, […]

After the terrible experience in 2020 of being holed up away from family and friends, Christmas and New Year’s 2021 was a significant improvement. I mean, sure, we had to do a bunch of rapid tests and sure, we had to intersperse going to COVID booster appointments in between unwrapping presents, but this year we were able to finally spend Christmas with our loved ones. And it was AWESOME. As the clock ticked down to midnight on New Year’s Eve, I reflected on the past year with a few close friends. Was the worst behind us? Do we dare hope […]
