About: 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
I started writing my blog months before I finally published it on September 1, 2018. After discovering the FIRE movement, I read numerous blogs and loved them, but I couldn’t find any written by single woman. It seemed like everyone was married and/or worked in tech and that didn’t represent me.
Even though I found my favorite blogs incredibly informative and so valuable, I knew others could identify with me and I wanted to write for them. The post here embodies my thoughts, feelings, and experiences around the time I started this blog. The responses I received assured me I was not alone in this struggle and that plenty more shared my thoughts and feelings. Learn more ►

I created this blog to enlighten, educate, and entertain fellow physicians and other people who may have similar circumstances (high-income, late start, educational debt, etc…). My aim is to help those who want to help themselves and share some unique insights from the perspective of a practicing physician. I hope to leave you informed and inspired to look at life a little differently than you might have before. Learn more ►
To start with, let me tell you a little about myself. I am a mom to two boys and a daughter. My husband and I came to America in our twenties and together we have been blessed with opportunities. I came with 2 suit cases, $200, lots of wisdom, hope, vision and dreams. He also had 2 suit cases, although more money; $500 that he borrowed and had to pay back.
Through this blog, I hope to grow and learn with you through my experiences, written literature, tried/true ideas and…maybe some experiments :-). I promise you no one will get in trouble 🙂 . I will share some of our parenting tips and ideas as we raise our kids and teach them how to make money work for them. Through this experiences, we can face the challenges that confront our generation, change the negative perspective about money, rewrite our stories and spread the message that financial liberty is for everyone. Come along and lets journey to ABUNDANCE with LITTLE. Learn more ►
This site was inspired by my family’s journey to live life to the fullest on less. But what does that look like? It involves budgeting and meal planning, a little minimalism, a strong backbone, and a lot of faith. Learn more ►
