Financial Independence Europe Podcast Appearance

Financial Independence Europe Podcast Appearance

Hello again, everyone. These are busy times in this corner of the interwebz. Today I can happily inform you that a couple of weeks ago I was invited to Europes’ best Financial Independence podcast. It is a great honor, especially that this is the only podcast which I am following ever since the beginning. Needless to say, I was super anxious as this was my first occasion speaking “publicly” in English. I was lucky as Araminta is very professional, super…

When necessities become luxuries

When necessities become luxuries

When someone mentions the word “luxury” the first things which come into mind are a holiday villa, a Lamborghini, a big pool with a bar serving fancy cocktails, champagne, and caviar. Simple things like tap water, central heating or common cars would probably not appear on that list. Despite these things became common only in the last century we are taking them as granted without a second thought. Then something happens and we are facing an unpleasant reminder that these…

Wrapping up the year with gratitude

Wrapping up the year with gratitude

Howdy fellas! Long time no see. As anyone can tell, this second half of the year wasn’t my most productive period in terms of blogging and otherwise. Don’t get me wrong, I am not apologizing and have no regrets. Many times I exchanged “blogging time” for simply hanging out with my wife or playing late with my daughters. Life is about priorities and we all have the same scarce resource of time which we decide where to invest. After all,…

Deadly Finance

We are already done with the triduum of Halloween, All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. While the Halloween part got more and more popularity at our ends only in recent years the other two days were always the occasion for us to visit the graves of our loved ones. This melancholic time of the year is perfect for remembering and reflection. As the weather turns colder, the days darker, and nature slowly slips into its hibernated state our thoughts…

America is No Longer The Land of Opportunity

Today I am happy to share you the second guest post on this blog. To be honest I asked my friend, MSF a couple of months ago if he wants to write the first guest post for my site but back then he was busy enjoying a sneaky blogging break and pretending that he is dead after a scary post about his health. For over a month he was in the state of Schröedinger’s cat for us but fortunately, it…

Prepping for Non-Preppers 101

Let me present you the first guest post on this blog. I follow many blogs (not enough but still more than I should) but only a handful of them rise above the others because of the character, personality and/or writing style of the author. This first guest post was written by one of those three bloggers whom I adore because of their interesting writing style and special way of thinking about the things of this crazy world. If you still…

How to get over your financial hangover

How to get over your financial hangover

I have revealed some details about our current landscaping and “relawning” project. We made good progress so we thought we can have a day of rest and having fun. Some friends came over and we had a grill party. Recently, I acquired two bottles of homemade Rakia (a spirit, which is very popular in my country) so we went on with some tasting. Long story short, we had a good time, but unfortunately, I lost my sanity and the night closed…

Call the man or be the man

Call the man or be the man

The past two weeks were extremely busy in the [HCF] household and we are still looking forward a lot more to come. Maybe some of you noticed that I was AFK since Good Friday. Living in a country like Serbia while belonging to the largest minority group has its advantages and disadvantages. I was experiencing the former lately in the form of unexpected holidays. The vast majority of citizens are Eastern Orthodox Christians (~85%), and the second one are Catholics…
