Travel Humor & Inspiration

Happier than a Billionaire Read Nadine’s books with a tissue handy.  You will laugh so hard you’ll cry!  You’ll also be inspired to look fearlessly at your own health and happiness, and what measures you’re willing to take in pursuit of it.  I know I was.

Liz thrives on family travel adventures and has arranged (and re-arranged) her work life as needed to pursue those adventures.  Reading her emails is like having a chat with your sister or best friend…the one who tells it like it is and keeps you laughing along the way.  Also, check out her travel course.  She’s a pro at sustaining long term travel on a budget.

Practical Help

Banking and money can be confusing in one country.  Try moving funds between countries without getting ripped off on exchange rate spreads and high fees.  It obviously isn’t free to transfer money between our US and Spanish bank accounts, but with TransferWise it is easy.  Their site is super intuitive and there is full transparency on the cost.  This is the service we currently use after exploring various options.  Let me know if you find anything better and I’ll add it to the list!

Traveling Mailbox is a long-term travel necessity.  Seriously!  I don’t know how I would handle my United States Postal Service mail without this service.  In short, all of our mail is forwarded to a PO Box in North Carolina.  Junk mail is shredded and envelopes are scanned.  I log in and give instructions for what to do with that mail.  Open and scan?  Delete?  Mail it somewhere?  Pay a bill?  It’s like having a Personal Assistant on the cheap with 24/7 access to your Mailbox.
