New here? Thanks for coming!

We are Ellen and Theo (Ellie & Tedly) – and we are experts at budget slow travel in early retirement. We are “Earth Vagabonds.”

Vagabond: (n) A person who wanders from place to place without a home or job. (adj) Having no settled home.

Instead of retiring and relocating to one specific place as many retirees do, we wander the planet. Full-time since 2015! It’s a travel lifestyle for us – we are way different than tourists. You could say we are on a never-ending holiday!

We retired early to travel the world while we still were young enough — and healthy enough — to easily do it.

But our methods shared on this site can also apply to people of traditional retirement age. After all – we all have a budget to stick to!

There are more than 750 pages on this site. We share a lot about how to live the budget slow travel lifestyle in early retirement, and we hope you find some of it useful.

Our mantra: Life is Now.

We hope to see you out here!
