Recently we were in Jolly Old England with our friends Alan and Katie. As FIRECracker mentioned in her previous Chautauqua post, we flew 4000 miles to freeze our butts off in the UK for our Chautauqua reunion and it was 100% worth it! Even though we hadn’t seen our Chautauquan family since last August, we picked up exactly where we left off. And after a memorable week spent with our favourite ...

We’ve been sitting on a bit of exciting news for a few weeks now, mostly because we were still deep in contract negotiations up until a few days ago, but now that we’ve officially signed the papers, we are proud to announce: We just signed a book deal with Penguin Random House! Specifically, we’re at the same imprint (TarcherPerigee) as… Nomadic Matt’s “How To Travel The World on $50 a ...

Hi peeps! It’s Friday again, which means…time for another Reader case! This reader writes to us from the GTA, and is wondering whether FIRE is right for them since they enjoy their jobs, and don’t see the point of retiring. Now, I’m glad they mentioned this, as I’ve said before, Financially Independence isn’t about retiring. It’s about freedom. You get to CHOOSE whether you want to work or not. Love ...

Another week, another check mark in the game of Canada’s slow-motion housing crash bingo. Let’s recap the sequence of events that led up to the US housing crash and let’s see how many of them we’ve hit so far. Step 1: Households Take on Massive Mortgage Debt This is the first step of any housing crash where average families take on stupid amounts of debt, borrowing excessively under the assumption ...

One of my favourite things about retiring early is having the time and energy to read more books. And one of the books that made an impression on me recently is called “Grit” by Angela Duckworth. The title was intriguing enough, but as soon I saw this in the summary I was hooked: Angela Duckworth shows how grit – the combination of passion and perseverance – distinguishes high achievers, and ...

After the disappointment of AquaCity in Poprad, we decided to go for a do-over in Piestany, where they was a entire island full of spas—appropriately named “Spa Island”. As soon as we arrived we knew we were going to have an intense relaxation experience given that people from all over the world (60% of the people who visit Spa island are foreigners) come all the way to Slovakia to get ...

The other day a reader sent me this article on the CBC talking about the experience buying a home right now for some hapless Canadian buyers. Basically, this couple bought a pre-construction property in Whitby (a suburb of Toronto) last year and were shocked to learn that new people buying into the development right next to them were paying up to $90,000 less than they did. All in a matter of months. ...
