There’s been a mass of posts recently with the ‘idea’ that if millennials simply eat less avocado toast, we’ll be able to afford to buy houses quicker. I’m not going to link, because they’re a waste of time. Thankfully, the general consensus is that these articles are bullshit and written by entitled people who managed to buy their first house with the help of the Bank of Mum & Dad, but… View Post

As many of you know, I’ve been travelling Asia since the beginning of this year. Although Pete and I have successfully secured work to earn money on the road (certified Digital Nomads, don’t you know), travelling on a budget and finding budget accommodation is still one of our main priorities. I’m a firm believer in budget travel being one of the best ways to experience a new culture. Street food,… View Post

If you’re a long time reader of this blog, you’ll know that health & fitness are one of my biggest passions.

Don’t get me wrong, this is not an article telling anyone who’s paid of their debt that they did… View Post
