The things that are possible when you know you to save!

Some mustachians may prefer saving the money instead of traveling, but I say gather those experiences while you're young!

Looks like it just started this month (only 10 posts).

Hope it lasts, I'm enjoying it!

This was a good one: http://www.drawnabroad.ca/blog-native/2015/6/24/my-favourite-places-to-travel

(Though the one linked in the OP was the most "Mustachian.")
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with a kid.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.

she's awesome; wish i could be like her again. i used to be, stay in the cheapest place, eat cheaply; now i'm a travel snob.

i actually didnt feel comforatble staying one nigh  a motel 6 last vacation; used to be that was my goto place.

i'll still stay at relatively inexpensive places, but the cheapest place now looks to bad, even though hampton inn is just a likely to get bedbugs in a room as motel 6.

Good article.

I'm glad I followed this advice when I was in my youth, and got to explore all the places when I was young.

But there are still so many more places I didn't get to explore! Every time I see a 'where I've been' map I realize how much more I'd love to explore the rest of the world. But now, in an inexpensive, slow travel, immersion, sort of way. Not a cheap, quick glance, see everything all at once, sort of way I enjoyed in my youth.

Thanks for posting the link.  I enjoyed reading some of the posts vicariously traveling wishing I had done something similar when younger.

Glad everyone enjoyed the link. One of my dreams is to take a mini-"retirement" in a country with a lower cost of living. I think we're living in a special time when travel is unusually cheap, so why not take advantage! The costs are too bad when you're not jamming everything into 8 days
