We are a middle age (but forever young) couple who decided to go on an adventure moving abroad from the cold (but great) Sweden to Palma on the sunny island of Mallorca. We are trying to live an awesome, free and happy life through financial freedom (FIRE), frugality, healthy habits and daily adventures. With us on the move to Spain we bring two two little offsprings with all the love and chores that includes.
Our past life
Before moving abroad we lived in a small house close to one of the major cities doing full time work charades (doing the full rat race kamikaze style) with way too little time for actual living*. It was definitely time to change our lives! The realisation that the little bastards will grow up to become big bastards and leave us sitting there wondering what the hell happened with all those years when they were small and lovely little creatures made the situation even more critical.
What we believe in
We strongly believe in living a life with more focus on free time and less on material things. We rather spend more time doing the things we actually love and get inspired by and not what society so intensively feeds us with. As fellow moustachians*** we don’t believe in full retirement but want too be able to choose what we want to work with and how much.
“In the end, we only regret the chances we did not take”Lewis Carrol
What we want to share
The upcoming year(s) we will share our experiences moving abroad to a small paradise island searching for the perfect timeout (or life long adventure) to reassess our old lives, investigate what is required for a life on FIRE on Mallorca and in general all the little nasty and wonderful surprises that life brings along when moving abroad with a family. You can choose to follow our FI-adventure as a whole or just use our learnings to plan for your own life adventure.
Why the “Snow family”? Well, i was out of imagination and we are a family from way up north and only consists of bastards! GoT:ya!
