Traveling the World on $2,000 per Month - Perception vs. Reality

Traveling the World on $2,000 per Month - Perception vs. Reality

When people say that they are going to travel the world for an entire year, the perception is that they’ve saved up a LOT of money to be able to afford it. That makes sense considering that The Motley Fool states that the average American is spending $1,928 for a week-long trip (per person). If we did the math, that would mean a full year of vacation would cost $100,256 PER PERSON - yikes! And, probably impossible unless you were super wealthy - thus the assumption that people think that we are rich (because we’ve been traveling the world for well over a year now). Well, the truth is, we have been spending no more than…

Three Hospitals in the Third Trimester - Having a Baby in Cape Town, South Africa

Three Hospitals in the Third Trimester - Having a Baby in Cape Town, South Africa

When we first learned that we were pregnant, less than 2 months into our multi-year travels around the world, we had two options: 1) end our travels early and return home or 2) have our baby while we were traveling.

Returning home would end our travels because, as full time travelers, we are exempt from paying for the mandatory U.S. medical insurance required by the Affordable Care Act - as long as we are outside of the country for at least 330 days out of the year. If we were to return, we would not only have to pay for our airfare (roughly $1,250 each from where we would be when we needed to return), but we would also have to back-pay for that medical insurance as we would no longer be exempt.
