    Goodbye 2018

    We think it’s no secret that we made 2018 our bitch. It was a hectic and eventful year for us, but we made some huge steps in the right direction. In this week’s post (coming a day later than usual due to the holiday schedule) we are going to go over some of the good and bad times we had in 2018 regarding our travels and our real estate. Travel We know what y’all are thinking: “You can’t travel. You’re trying to save money and travel is expensive.” Well, 1. Don’t be an asshole. And 2. You’re wrong. Travelling doesn’t have to be expensive at all, and while we are…

    Dying Early & Broke Because You're American

    Healthcare in Early Retirement? The question seemingly has no easy answer as an American. When we discuss healthcare in retirement, and our short-term plans to utilize medical tourism, and moving abroad to capitalize on Mrs. RRR’s access to practically free healthcare with her EU citizenship we are usually met with squints, sighs, and other skeptical sayings and body language. For some reason, despite clear evidence to the contrary, Americans as a whole feel like healthcare everywhere else is somehow poorer quality and less than what’s available in America. Well, I hope you’re sitting down because we are about to blow your damn minds. “You get what you pay for.”- someone…

    Benefits of an EU Citizenship

    We are very excited to reveal that one of us got an EU citizenship last week. Spoiler Alert: it wasn’t me. Mrs. RRR had a much easier path to get an EU citizenship than most Americans would. We have flirted with the idea of perpetual travel once we hit financial independence and using her grandparent’s guest house as a base, but knew that we would be playing a counting game of days. Making sure we weren’t staying over 90 days here, without taking a week or so there, but you can’t spend more than 90 days within a 180 day period in the Schengen area, but which countries are outside…

    How to Survive Norwegian Airlines, & Other Budget Airlines.

    The time has come to take our long-anticipated Europe trip to Cyprus and Dubrovnik via Norwegian Airlines. Most budget airlines, like Norwegian, offer incredibly low fares while trying to up-sell you on literally everything. This is why we think you could use our guide on how to survive Norwegian Airlines & other budget airlines. To give you a brief rundown, we practically robbed Norwegian Airlines by booking flights from NYC to Larnaca, Cyprus for $275. Just to drive home why this is such a big deal, this trip is typically over double that for the same time in May. We also booked flights from Dubrovnik, Croatia back to NYC for…

    Booking Free Flights To Europe…and Why I Cancelled Them

    In this post I’m not going to tell you to cut out your coffee, sell your SUV, or even how to cut the cord on cable. Here comes the fun stuff. Consumerists rejoice! I’m going to explain how you can get free flights anywhere in the world. Would you like to fly to Europe for free? Or would you rather pay for the same trip? At face value, the answer is an easy one, but after my explanation you might change your mind. So, Mrs. RRR, and I like to think of ourselves as travel aficionados. We prefer taking less frequent longer trips to Europe as opposed to multiple shorter…
