In our last blog post, we loaned you our scar tissue from our trip to Machu Picchu with our young kids. This time around, you’ll learn about what we’re glad we did do: Continue reading “Machu Picchu: What I’m glad we did do”
If you’ve ever dreamed of going to Machu Picchu, then this jam-packed with useful information, 5-part blog series is for you.
Peru is a magical country full of gracious, friendly people. The climate is incredibly diverse, leading from an arid environment up into the Andes mountains covered in snow. Beyond is a tropical rain forest where the upper stretches of the Amazon embrace the ruins of Machu Picchu that were hidden from the world for so many centuries. (The Incan destroyed a large part of the Incan trail to hide Machu Picchu from the Spaniards).
I am so glad and thankful we took our family to Machu Picchu. We almost bailed on the whole trip because of how awful the flying experience was leading up to leaving Medellín! Tune in to the last part of this blog series for more details on that aspect of the trip. For now, let me loan you my scar tissue and share the first part of this series: Continue reading “Machu Picchu: What I wish we had done differently”
If you want to get your finances in order and don’t know where to start, then you need to be visiting the Bogleheads on at least a weekly basis. We often type “Bogleheads” and whatever questions we have into google and click on the links that come up. Just starting out and want to know the difference between FSA’s and HSA’s? Go to the Bogleheads. Want to save money on cooking? Yes, there’s even a few Bogleheads discussion threads on Instant Pots.
With that being said, DH has returned to give you all a top five picks of the Bogleheads for the month. In our next post, B.C. will return with a 5 part (!) series where we share our scar tissue from our amazing trip to Machu Picchu.

Here’s another blog from DH on how to make yourself infinitely happier in life. In response to Crispy Doc asking, “What’s the nicotine gum equivalent for portfolio OCD?” DH wrote an entire blog on habit change to answer this question as a follow-up to his blog from last week about why you should only be checking your portfolio every six months: Continue reading “How to Make Yourself Happier by Stopping Yourself from Checking Your Portfolio too Often”
Today’s post is brought to you by DH, aka “Dear Husband,” though I’ve taken to calling him my “BHE” (Best Husband Ever). The timing of checking one’s net worth was a subject we were discussing while on Sabbatical in Colombia, and he decided to put it the why’s and how’s into written form, hoping you all would benefit from his research: Continue reading “Why You’ll Be Happier if You Only Look at Your Portfolio Every Six Months”
Even if you’re not a blogger or podcaster, if you’re a regular reader or listener, it would behoove you to attend at least one FINCON . Here are the reasons why: Continue reading “10 Reasons Why You Need to Attend a FINCON”
Although I wrote this post in July, I had to wait until today to edit it as I was finishing up writing a book for y’all (more on that in a future post). And that whole moving thing has been consuming my time of late. But now that I’m about 2/3rds of the way done unpacking, I can return to the world of blogging.
Folks, there’s a reason why people who’ve been to Colombia—especially Medellín—get all excited and animated when they start talking about these places. It’s because this city of eternal Spring is incredible! DH and I were talking recently, saying we thought last summer was amazing. But this summer has easily been one of the best summers of our lives.
Since people have been asking me how much our Sabbatical cost, I thought I’d do a blog post with a detailed analysis for anyone who is not only interested in a Sabbatical in Medellín but perhaps considering Geo Arbitrage for long term living down here.
