I closed my eyes, resting my face on the cold bathroom tiles. The tremors in my stomach had temporarily subsided, but the room was still spinning. Oh God, why oh why did I order that stupid seafood tower? After what felt like hours, I knelt on the bathroom floor shivering and covered in cold sweat. Oh crap, I thought, as another wave of nausea hit me. With shaky hands, I crawled over to the toilet and started puking again. So how did we end up here? Let me back up a bit. Before we came to Madrid, we were both […]

Why did we go to Malta? Well, ever since we got a visa to stay in Europe for a full year I’ve been obsessively trying to check off every country in the EU Schengen zone (as of the time of writing, we have just 5 countries left—Slovenia, Sweden, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Luxembourg). Do I get an award for checking them off? Nope. Does that make me crazy? Probably. Anyway, for most people, Instagram pictures of an azure paradise is why they go to Malta. Pictures like this: And this: And this: In fact, on Instagram the #malta has 5.4 million […]

“I am with the production team at 60 Second Docs. We recently learned about your story of how you two were able to save and invest your money to the point where you could retire very early.

We’re nomadic. How exactly are they going to film us?” Turns out, being nomadic turned out to […]

But then she bobbed up from the water, smiling and splashing around like a giddy seal, puffs of her breath steaming up the air. As I stood on the deck of the Löyly sauna, wrapping my towel tightly around myself, I decided, then and there, that when it comes to conquering winter, no one does it like the Finns.
