Travel

I’m back in the Bay Area, enjoying some good weather and sunshine. In the process of being back home, I’ve been making efforts to reconnect with friends, readers, and basically anyone who wants to talk shop about early FI, travel, and investing.

Just this past weekend, I had a string of meet ups and like always when I’ve been gone for awhile, It takes me time to continue reading at Steemit

Just a little over one year ago, I quit my engineering job so that I could pursue a life unscripted. For months prior to letting the mic drop, I contemplated my options and worked on figuring out where I wanted the journey to take me next.

After much deliberation, I ultimately [click to continue…]

I’m back in the Bay Area! Well, at least for the next few weeks or so before I hit the road yet again. It’s a little too early to say, but right now I’m making tentative plans to go visit Phuket in Thailand… And I know Chiang Mai is a very popular destination for digital [click to continue…]

One Year Ago Today

in Hong Kong, Progress

HK - 1

One year ago (6/29/16), this finally happened…

Early FI.

The culmination of a lot of: hard work, sweat, blood, tears, luck, persistence, determination, more luck, and a whole lot more…

I spent all day today traveling, but I finally arrived in Puerto Rico! This is my first time out here, and at first glance it kinda reminds me of Miami.

When it comes to early FI (and well, I guess life in general), it’s human nature and tendency to look at things from a linear perspective… I think that’s probably why when somebody actually gets to early FI and then reflects back they’re kind of left scratching their head and wondering:

Oh shit, what the hell just happened?

I can vouch for that because that’s kind of how it went for me… I was just some regular [click to continue…]

I’m still in the Bay Area, and it’s gloomy days like today that make me reflect back and think of the good times chilling out by the beach. No, I’m not really complaining much at all — The weather out here has been just fine and dandy, but today just so happens to be extra cloudy…

Anyway, I did realize that I never got around to uploading some recent pics when I was out in the [click to continue…]

As readers know, I’m back in the Bay Area now… and having one hell of a time trying to make ends meet here! When I checked out of the game for good last year, at the age of 31, I had a pretty good inkling that it would be really tough for me to survive out in the Land of High Tech (let alone thrive), so within a matter of a few months, I had booked my ticket out to Hong Kong and said “peace out” to Silicon Valley…

Bay Area – Living out of a Suitcase

by FI Fighter on March 30, 2017

in Bay Area, Travel Updates

It ain’t easy (or cheap) trying to make ends meet in the Bay Area… That might be the understatement of the last few decades! But alas, it is what it is…

If I had a crystal ball and knew a few years ago that certain regions [click to continue…]
