When Sarah & myself got married a year ago, we pretty much blew our nearly non-existent savings on our wedding and home renovations which came around during the same period. We consider ourselves very blessed that we somehow managed to get the money together to even have a honeymoon in perth.
One of Sarah’s wishes before we settle down or even consider starting a family was that she wanted to see the world and so the first thing I did after a little bit of research was book 2 tickets to europe on a 12 month 0% interest credit card installment plan (We paid about $2.3k for return tickets on SQ, 2 pax which works out to roughly $191 a month)
And cos we’re very fond of living as closely to a local setting of the each country we visit as possible, we know that there isn’t a better way than to Airbnb our way through. Not only is it cheaper than staying in most commercialzed hotels, I also get to live in an actual local apartment, do laundry, cook ,and even do work. Most importantly, I am always very well taken care of by my host.
In this particular case, I truly believe that I was fortunate enough to live in one of the best Airbnb’s ever apartments which belonged to a superhost name florian.
