Hello there, internet!
We are writing this from Villa de Leyva in Colombia where, after an excruciatingly long involuntary hiatus caused by…you guessed it, COVID-19, Chautauqua has finally returned in 2022!
The pandemic disrupted all our lives in a profound way, and for two years it seemed like the long-promised return to normalcy was never going to happen. But pandemics don’t last forever, and as the world got vaccinated and the virus receded, the things that made life worth living have gradually returned.
Chautauqua is back, and FIRECracker and I are incredibly honoured to play our small part in bringing it back from the abyss.
Situated in the Andean mountains about 4 hours from the capital of Bogota, Villa de Leyva has turned out to be everything we hoped and more. The food is incredible, the view is amazing, and the attendees have all just arrived and are ready to party like it’s 2019!
But of course, we aren’t the only FIRE celebrities here. With us are Jordon “DocG” Grummet…
And of course, the iconic J.L. “The Godfather of FI” Collins and his incredible wife Jane:
However, I have to give a special shout out to Alan and Katie Donegan, who you might know from Rebel Finance School. Nobody has worked longer or harder, putting in countless hours in a constantly-shifting COVID landscape to bring Chautauqua back to the thousands of people who, like us, have been chomping at the bit to return to the premiere event of the FIRE world.
In short, we are back. The travel, the food, the inspiring talks from FIRE luminaries. It’s all back, and personally, we couldn’t be more excited!

Stay safe, and keep travelling, friends!
