As we stay at home, isolating ourselves from our family and friends as well as the people located around us, we are constantly thinking of our community. Our community is much bigger than our geographic neighborhood.  We are staying in touch with our family and friends everyday, and listening to personal stories about how this […] ...

Dear Packing List – Thank you for helping us make every place we visit feel like home. And thank you for keeping us grounded, safe, and comfortable everywhere we travel to on this fabulous earth.

In the FIRE community one question that gets asked all the time is, what is your motivation to change your approach to life and money and stop following the pack? Shortly after Ali and I made that decision in June of 2017 I asked Ali this question, “Why do you want to stop working right […] ...

This is the type of post I was hoping not to ever have to write. But as we all know, shit happens. The good news is, I’m “fine” now. We both are! I learned what a concussion feels like as a teenager, and I’ve sprained both ankles more times than I can count. I also […] ...

We have now been traveling full time for 17 months. During that time I’ve seen dentists in Thailand, Panama, and Mexico.

Personally, we had a great year of travel in 2019. And even with surprise medical costs, our 2019 spending proved that our budget was a good fit. We also learned how to be very happy and grounded being Home Free. But, how did our portfolio do last year? The first thing to note, which was […] ...

I’m excited that our first year of retirement and also our first year of full-time travels is in the books! This will sound very cliche, but wow 2019 just flew by! When we left January 3, 2019 from San Francisco to Singapore it felt like an overwhelming adventure had begun. Getting through the first few […] ...

2019 was our first year of full-time travel. We started the year as complete rookies in our new travel lifestyle and we definitely learned a lot. It took time to learn how to slow down and figure out that we don’t need to see all the sites. We had to get familiar with our ever […] ...

I’m super excited to be in Mexico as we start the new year! Why? Because I love visiting new countries and Mexico is very new to me. But also because I have a ton of Mexican ancestors. If you look at me it might be hard to believe that half of my family comes from […] ...
