7 micro projects to work on (an update part 2)

In our post about the 7 micro projects we need to work on before leaving we talked about the things we need to get done before hitting the road in December. Let’s see how we’re doing now, shall we? Before we go, though, I have to admit that calling them the 7 micro projects was…

Transferring money with Western Union

We are trying to make our life a little more comfortable for the beginning of our trip, so we decided to book a guesthouse in Goa for our first week. Naturally, this was the engineer’s task, since I’m in charge of um.. like a lot of other things. Like, really. (Seriously, he’s the doer in…

7 micro projects to work on (an update part 1)

In the previous post about the 7 micro projects we’re working on, we discussed about the small things that always seem to take so much time to take care of, and yet still you always end up leaving them to the last minute. This typically leads to that oh-no-we’re-leaving-tomorrow-and-the-house-is-still-full-of-stuff panic, which makes hitting the road often…

The enginerd on buying tickets

When you’ve done something a dozen times, you tend to forget that not everyone else has. It may seem simple enough to you, but a first-timer could still be at a loss. Since the engineer just booked the Helsinki-Goa tickets, he wanted to tell in details how he did it. So here it comes, a simple…

What’s the plan?

So, it has become the time to finally make some decisions about where, when and how. Ask me if I’m excited! Yes, yes I am and so is the enginerd, who plays a very important role of a ticket buyer in our duo. So, here’s the plan: We are leaving in early December. We will go…

10 tips on saving money

We get asked a lot how can we afford this. We both have steady income, and are lucky enough to be financially independent, which is nice. To be honest, we did also get some nice cash for our wedding. However, we had to make saving a second nature after we realized we will be hitting…

We believe in budgeting

In the post about micro projects, we mentioned budgeting. When we planned our trip around the world, we made a rough estimation on how much we’d spend, and we did it again. And again… and again. As frustrating as it was, it really, I repeat, really helped us to make ends meet on the road….

7 micro projects to work on

We are leaving in the early December for an unknown length of time. Three years earlier, we took off and left for a trip around the world. This time, however, we have NO IDEA, whatsoever, when and if we will come back at all, how long we are going to be gone and where we will…

Master of budgets

We have made one long trip and several shorter ones. However, we do not make much money, and these trips were partially made when one of us was still a student. Yet still we are not in a lot of debt or paying back credit card bills from two years ago. The key to that…
