Cost Analysis of a Sabbatical Summer in Medellín
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.

A Gap Year Traveling the US and Abroad: thoughts and an itinerary from a family with young children
Last summer, I was a beta tester in a Montana Money Adventures’ class, along with a Coloradoan lady doctor who is half of Wander All Year. We’ve kept in touch while she (and I) both used that class as our springboard for sabbaticals. Now she’s traveling the world with her family.
For anyone who is considering slow travel with a family, this is a great guest post from her husband. It details their thoughts that went into planning a gap year traveling the U.S. and other parts of the world. (And fun fact: the lady doc is the only woman I know who had one set of twins that were born in different years!): Continue reading “A Gap Year Traveling the US and Abroad: thoughts and an itinerary from a family with young children”
Why We Moved Our Family to Medellín, Colombia for the Summer
“An overloaded lifestyle, squeezing it all in, overwhelms our time and pushes out the meaningful that we naturally crave.” Valorie Burton’s It’s About Time
Yes, we relocated our family to Pablo Escobar’s former playground for two and a half months. Once we started telling people people, we were inundated with questions, quizzical and shocked looks. When I made it public on Facebook, my phone exploded. So I gathered most of the questions (not all are related to Colombia) into one place: this blog post.

How to be efficient with your time if you have a family
In part one of this blog last week I wrote about what I learned from reading 168 Hours: You have more time than you think. Time is our most precious resource. Today, you’ll learn how to optimize time and live a fuller life while juggling work and family.

What is Success when you consciously choose to consume less in America?
If any blog is to get me hate mail, this is the one—though hopefully it’s been edited enough by my Dragon Lady that the sharp edges no longer remain in this piece.
If something I write here hits a little too close to home—rather than stopping reading—why don’t you finish the blog and sit quietly for a bit to think about why you don’t like this particular blog? I’m hoping by doing this, it will help make you a happier person in the long run.

What Financial Freedom can do for you
“We’re in this stage of life where we’re supposed to have flexible time because we’re raising children, yet none of us have this time we need because we’re all working. It doesn’t make sense.”
One of my friends from Germany recently wrote this to me in an email and I agree wholeheartedly with him. So many of us are doing life backwards : having kids and working full time, but after the kids move out, then we retire or change to working part-time.
If people were financially free Continue reading “What Financial Freedom can do for you”
Could the head of your organization be a sociopath? (DH Blog Post)
Stop and think about the organization you work for. Do the marching orders from above make workers on the front lines take responsibility for bad outcomes—while the profits are reaped by upper management—all while the higher ups have little, if anything, at risk?
Are middle managers where you work borderline incompetent?
Have you felt an odd connection with The Office television program? Continue reading “Could the head of your organization be a sociopath? (DH Blog Post)”
