All Things Money

Let’s face it, unless you’re a lottery winner, you’re going to be keeping a close eye on your spending during your trip, as well as considering ways to generate a few Euros to help fund it.

We’ve brought together here all the financial lessons we learned as we travelled, and afterwards, to help you get an idea of how affordable this type of lifestyle can be.

Financial Education

The Money Muppet
We came back to the UK after two years on the road in order to set ourselves financially free. Our goal is to travel where, and more importantly when, we want. In order reach this goal we needed to earn enough money to sustain us outside of the rat race. As Jay (the Money Muppet) began to financially educate himself, he soon discovered that as well as working to earn the money, we needed to make it work for us.
