Play for full effect. This year marks our third straight year of near-continuous world travel, and some of the most common questions we get when we come by home to see friends and family are “don’t you ever get tired of travelling?” or “don’t you miss having roots?” or my favorite “don’t we miss having stability?” And when we get those questions, the answer is always no, no, and a ...

We were sitting on the balcony of our friend’s apartment in Hanover, just chilling out and chatting when a massive ball of blinking lights appeared in the night sky. As the four of us watched, mesmerized, a mask appeared, which morphed into a skull, only to quickly dissolve and reform into a waving German flag. “What the Hell is that?” “Are those fireflies? Christmas lights? Shooting stars?” Personally, being the ...

“Writing this book almost killed me. It was like giving birth.” – Ramit Sethi “I’d cry. I’d whine to Mr. Frugalwoods… I re-wrote the first chapter no less than 17 times.” – FrugalWoods “Did I enjoy writing the book? Um, let’s just say, I’m happy to have written a book.”– JLCollins “Get ready for the roller-coaster ride of your life! Writing a blog is nothing like writing a book.” – ...

Hey all, It’s Friday, so here we go again: another reader case! After Monday’s article on retiring with a locked-in pension, I thought it would be fun/instructive to show how to do an analysis with an actual reader having this exact problem. Hi Firecracker/Wanderer, Love you guys and are so inspired by what you’re doing! I would TOTALLY appreciate your advice regarding our financial situation so here goes… I’m currently ...

For some odd reason, we’ve gotten a recent flood of emails asking us about how to pull off this whole FIRE thing if they have some kind of locked-in retirement account (eg. pension), so I thought I’d use today’s article to address this. What is a Locked-In Account? A Locked-In account is the catch-all term for any retirement account that has an age limit on when you can withdraw. Note ...

“Bring me your finest hamburger, my good sir!” Sitting in a Hamburg restaurant, we thought we’d order one of their specialties for lunch. But our waiter gave us a blank stare. “Ahh…” he stammers. “We don’t have…hamburgers.” Now it’s my turn to give a blank stare. “This IS Hamburg right?” “Yes.” “So, aren’t you famous for hamburgers?” His eyebrow is raised so high, I’m afraid it’s going to pop off ...

“Why are you still travelling? Isn’t it boring by now?” “Ditch your portfolio and become a real-estate investor like me! I own 3 condos and I’m buying another one.” “You’re missing out on all the housing gains! Everyone knows houses go up forever!” “Just wait until your have kids! You’ll never travel again and you’ll HAVE to buy a house.” “Why aren’t you having kids? Do you really want to ...

For some reason lately I’ve been getting a bunch of emails asking me what I think of a particular Target Date Fund, so I thought this would make a good article. But before we get into what I think of these things (hint: It’s in the title of this article), let’s first talk about what these things are. What is a Target Date Fund? Target Date funds are also known ...

  In the U.S and Canada, unless you’re trading sex for money, there’s no need to get naked in public. But in Germany, nudity doesn’t automatically illicit eroticism—it depends on the context. And in a sauna, it’s just practical. We were told that bathing suits are not allowed—for health reasons, believe it or not—so if you want to experience a German sauna, you’ll have to bare it all. Don’t worry ...
