Pandemic travel planning

We are constantly re-evaluating travel plans for the future.

We have a few helpful resources for the truly intrepid traveler. (And our blog updates cover the latest developments on Boracay Island.)

Continuous slow travel

We live this lifestyle because we stay on budget. (Mostly.) The key to managing your money is to control your spending.

We offer lots of information on this site on how to save money and stretch money on a nonstop travel adventure.

We also reveal our expenses in monthly reports.

Early retirement info

We retired early after many years of hard work, saving money, and making specific lifestyle choices back in the USA.

If we can do it – you can do it.

We hope to inspire people for more authentic travel, instead of taking cruises and going to all-inclusive resorts. For us, slow travel on a budget is a more sustainable way to travel and really help local communities.
