About 43 Blue Doors: In 2016 we retired early from our corporate jobs to live our dream of traveling. We renovated a few foreclosed homes, turned them into rental properties, and got rid of all our belongings. If things go according to plan, our diverse investments should keep us on the road indefinitely.
Our travel is slow travel in hopes to get to know each country better and enjoy what it has to offer. In each country, we look for at least one volunteer opportunity. These opportunities allow us to give back a little, and they also give us more insight into each country and put us on the path of some pretty awesome people that we meet along the way.
We embrace minimalism and travel with only our backpacks utilizing public transportation. We love the freedom to move when and where at the drop of a hat. Occasionally, as a break from traveling, we house sit. This allows us time to relax, enjoy a home and usually a few pets. We use that time to catch up on our online activities and sometimes binge-watch a series or two.
This blog is about stories from our nomadic life. We hope that our stories provide insight into other cultures and encourage our readers to travel to new places.
Year Started: 2016

This is a blog about my journey towards financial independence/retiring early in Australia, with the aim of continuing to earn a high passive income after attaining FIRE. Many blogs in this sphere are focussed on financial independence through extreme savings and a fairly lean income at retirement, and are often directed towards those with a low to average income during working life. Those blogs are still great and that style of FIRE is completely valid! However my aim as a higher income earner is to try to attain financial independence while enjoying the journey there, as well as setting myself up for a very comfortable life after retiring from work – sometimes referred to as FatFIRE, though I prefer the healthier sounding term coined by Aussie HIFIRE. This blog therefore will be about my journey towards this goal – and the optimisation to my lifestyle that will still be necessary to achieve it! Learn more ►
