                      ★

                      ★
                          Budgetted



Monday 27 June 2011
OUR WAY
                      OF DOING IT


Monday 27 June 2011
First step
            ★
                      Figured out what we wanted in life.
            ★
                      Read ‘4 hour work week’ and checked the side info
            ★
                      Downloaded a budget planner
            ★
                      Chose destinations (gut feeling + internet available)
            ★
                      Started planning
            ★
                      & Saved money (by selling stuff + asking 4 money
                      instead of presents
Monday 27 June 2011
SECOND step
            ★
                      Figured out a job to do remotely / Checked for
                      grants / gap year subsidizing / ...
            ★
                      We went to the accountant and asked what is
                      possible
            ★
                      Went 4 cheap tickets (Airstop / Connections) and
                      checked early booking
            ★
                      We told our clients we were leaving. Prepared
                      them (and our family). Installed Skype on their PC

Monday 27 June 2011
THIRD step
            ★
                      Found a hostel / hotel / couch for some days
                      (couchsurfing.org, booking.com)
            ★
                      Went on the local craigslist for apartments /
                      checked the ads in the newspaper
            ★
                      Found locals through twitter / couchsurfing
            ★
                      Got a local mobile number + connect it to
                      nomado.eu
            ★
                      Found ourself an office / café with wifi
Monday 27 June 2011
FOURTH step
            ★
                      Lived locally
            ★

HOLD ON..
                      IS IT THAT EASY?

Monday 27 June 2011
SOME OF AFTERTHOUGHTS



Monday 27 June 2011
THE HARD STUFF

            ★
                      You just can’t do it all. You’re not a tourist, you have a
                      working life and are not on vacation. Although many
                      people think you are.
            ★
                      Tourist stuff is expensive. Very expensive.




Monday 27 June 2011
THE HARD STUFF II
            ★
                      Starting over and over again is tiring. Rather choose
                      for 6 months than 4. Don’t underestimate the
                      practical stuff you need to learn (which supermarket
                      to go, find an apartment, postal office)
            ★
                      Language is a deal breaker: we made easily friends in
                      S Africa. Thailand and Brazil turned out to be hard due
                      to the language.


Monday 27 June 2011
THE HARD STUFF III
            ★
                      Some countries are not what you thought they would
                      be. Argentina turned out very expensive. And too big
                      for weekend trips. And for that reason not that
                      exciting for us.
            ★
                      Difficulties can put your relationship under stress.
                      Most important: Keep on talking. Respect each other.
                      Give each other space.
                      (We survived and the relationship became stronger.)

Monday 27 June 2011
THE HARD BUSINESS I
            ★
                      Working needs discipline: It really helped us to have
                      an office in Buenos Aires. We became much more
                      productive
            ★
                      Headphones are a must
            ★
                      Good internet makes a hell of a difference, although,
                      not having it all the time makes you more productive


Monday 27 June 2011
THE HARD BUSINESS II
        ★
               Clients that were difficult at home, are difficult on the
               road.
        ★
               We didn’t do anything illegal, but for what we did, there
               wasn’t any real regulation...




Monday 27 June 2011
THE GOOD STUFF
         ★
                We did it! We really did it. And it worked! We had an
                amazing year.
         ★
                We were able to focus on the things we wanted, like we
                had in mind.
         ★
                We travelled a lot. Really a lot.
         ★
                And we came home with more money than we started.
