This is a 3 part series, click here for part 1. Last year, when the pandemic hit and we had to come back to Canada, we had to do something we hadn’t done in a long time. Drive. Specifically, drive in downtown Toronto. Let’s just say driving in Toronto and I have a long and complex love-hate relationship—except, you know, without the love. On the plus side, if I ever get tired of being married, driving in downtown Toronto together will fix that right up for me. I suspect, this is why we love Europe and Asia, where public transportation […]

Our original plan was to follow the results of our reader poll, leave the country and go to Madeira, Portugal. But then this happened: Passengers left on planes, sometimes for hours, due to Pearson COVID capacity limits ~~Toronto Sun That’s when I realized that even though we are both fully vaccinated, travel is STILL on hard mode, and staffing shortages means that travelling internationally is a nightmare. So, we did the next best thing. We decided to travel domestically and visit the Atlantic provinces instead (after all, as one reader pointed out, if we don’t go during the warm months, […]

I recently read a fascinating book called “In Order to Live” by North-Korean defector and survivor, Yeonmi Park. It’s an autobiography, telling the story of 13-years-old Yeonmi fleeing North Korea, becoming a victim of human trafficking in China, and eventually finding freedom in South Korea.  To say that she’s “had it bad” would be an understatement. She goes through so much that I wouldn’t even wish it on my worst enemy. I won’t spoil it, but let’s just say it was one of the most harrowing tales of escape I’ve ever read.  What struck me about this book was that, […]

I first heard about making big bucks overseas from Andrew Hallam, a self-proclaimed “Millionaire Teacher” and author. That was way before I discovered FIRE, and now that I know about both, combining them to create a “cheat code” to FI makes perfect sense. The trick is to find a job in a country with something called a “territorial taxation” system, enabling you to keep 100% of your earnings, tax-free! Bonus points if your employer also covers your accommodations. After learning about this strategy from friends who became FI without a STEM degree or 6-figured salary, I realized that it’s a […]
