Hey y’all! To switch things up, we’re guest posting on GoCurryCracker today, one of our favourite FIRE blogs that inspired us to retire and travel the world.

This is the quote I copied into my final work e-mail.

But I wasn’t really quitting to travel the world for a year. I was walking out of the corporate world FOREVER.
At the age of 32, my husband and I were retiring with a Million dollar portfolio, enough by the 4% rule to sustain our $40K/year living expenses indefinitely.
But I didn’t tell my co-workers that….MORE.
