As I continue my counting countries series, next up is my country number 43, Andorra. It’s an absolutely tiny country (technically a principality) perched up in the Pyrenees between Spain and France. The mountains lend it some very spectacular views which were the highlight of my visit. Andorra As one of the well known sovereign […] The post Mini country with views to die for – Andorra- Country 43 appeared first ...

As I continue to reflect on the countries I’ve visited, I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I recall Moldova. My visit was eagerly anticipated as it looked slightly off the beaten track and a bit more adventurous a place to visit than it’s neighbours. And I knew if I went, I’d be sure to […] The post Slightly off that track – Moldova – Country 42 appeared first on Ms ...

What a month it’s been. In September 2019 I completed my Americas trip with a visit to fincon and won an award! Had a brief spell at home, then another quick trip out to Norway. Also, how did my money fare, especially as I’m still enjoying a life of leisure. How was September 2019? I […] The post Net Worth and other updates – September 2019 (+9k) appeared first on Ms ...

Despite studying the obligatory modern European languages at school, I never really found my feet. Rote repetition I could do, but truth be told, I just did not get it. The grammar confused me and I had no interest in pursuing my studies. However, as someone who travels, I feel very ignorant only speaking English. […] The post Why chose to learn such a difficult language as Chinese? appeared first on ...

As someone who likes to collect countries, I started to wonder why I was missing out Portugal. Why had I never been there? As one of the cheaper destinations in Europe with lots of culture, it should be right up my street. So why exactly had I never been? From the heart Truth be told, […] The post Why have I never been? – Portugal – Country 41 appeared first on ...

From my recent Americas trip, the part that most people keep asking about is Hawaii. Perhaps it’s because even after listing off an impressive and eccentric list of places – Montreal, Quebec, Toronto, Niagara, Detroit, Phoenix, Washington DC and NYC it stands out. Or more likely people are just entranced with the exotic and faraway. […] The post Hawaii on the cheap – My budget 2 island – 5 day whirlwind ...

So, earlier in the month this happened. Little old me, out of the blue, won an award. When my name was called at the Plutus awards, I was shocked to the core, alongside that special feeling you get when you win something. I felt special for one night. The Plutus Awards Harlan Landes and his […] The post When you unexpectedly win a Plutus award appeared first on Ms ZiYou. ...

I made it to Canada (country number 46), Detroit and Hawaii. And my net worth didn’t suffer too much. No doubt that August 2019 was a great month overall. Theatre, travels and fun people made the month. How was August 2019? August was another relaxing month with no work. I really could get used to […] The post Net Worth and other updates – August 2019 (-£20k) appeared first on Ms ...
