Their story has been featured on CBC, the Huffington Post, CNBC, BNN, Business Insider, and Yahoo Finance. To date, it is the most shared story in CBC history and their viral video on CBC's On the Money has garnered 4.5 Million views.

“Why would I ever buy a house? I pay 380 Euros a month for rent in central Riga and my landlord is basically my slave.” I liked our tour guide, Kaspar, right away. We were on a Riga Free Walking Tour (they don’t have Sandemann’s walking tours in Riga) and a traveller had asked about the cost of housing in Latvia. Then in response to another person asking him about why the cost of living is so low, he launched into a segment called “the miserable and depressing lives of the Latvian people”. Having been on many walking tours, one […]

“Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.”–John Wayne I accomplish the most when I’m scared. Like the time I got my Scuba Diving Certification in Thailand, conquering my life-long fear of water. Or retiring from my job at 31 to travel the world, shedding the “computer engineer” identity I’d built up for the past 14 years. And now, sending our first draft to our Penguin editor. For every single one of those experiences, I felt the fear but did it anyway, proving the saying “bliss is on the other side of fear”. After 9 months inside the […]

Every so often, I wake up and there’s a brief moment of confusion where I have no idea where in the world I am. Wait, am I in Panama, or Greece, or Singapore? Oh wait, none of the above. I’m in Latvia. And that feeling is quickly followed by an overwhelming wave of happiness and wonder that this, travelling the world perpetually with my best friend and doing what we both love, is my reality now. When people remark about how lucky we are to become F.I. at such a young age, I make it a point to stop and […]

“Vilnius: The G-spot of Europe. You don’t know where it is but once you find it, it’s amazing!”   This is not a joke. This is a real ad from the tourism board of Lithuania, and it was even featured on John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight, so you KNOW it’s legit.     I wasn’t even thinking of going to Vilnius, but after seeing this, I just had to. Before we came to Lithuania, we knew nothing about it. I couldn’t find it on a map and I never heard of its capital, Vilnius, either. We decided to go find […]

  Having been to Warsaw, Krakow, Zakopane, and Poznan , I was sure Poland wouldn’t have any more surprises for us. After the enchanting old town of Warsaw, the chandeliered salt mines in Krakow, the sparkling glacial lakes of Zakopane, and the cheeky head-butting goats in Poznan, could we really be blown away by Gdansk? Isn’t it just a touristy seaside town with narrow buildings and a canal that looks suspiciously like Copenhagen? Since we had already been to Copenhagen, Gdansk had big shoes to fill. So needless to say, I set my expectations low. Little did I know, Gdansk […]
