Finding A Viable Money Solution While Traveling- Life on the Road Finances
Just like we thought we knew how to be parents before we had kids, we were sure that all the prep-work we had done (eh-hem, Kobi had done) would make our access to finances a breeze. We still have that amazing sleeve Kobi’s mom sewed up for us to hide the most important stuff. We still have the traveler’s checks, unused, that Kobi purchased for a rainy day waaaay back in 2011. We still have our American and our Israeli credit cards. But, we also have had a lot of trouble lately using those credit cards and have found ourselves (*cough* Kobi *cough*) running to ATM machines to withdraw money for some basic purchases.
We’re clearly in a time of great change, as we struggle between backpack-hood and rolling-bag-hood. Between wanting our kids to have a great education and not feeling like teaching them because we want to other things for 20 hours a week. Between wanting them to have an old-fashion education with books and notebooks (and us) and wanting it to be simpler, lighter than carrying 13 workbooks, something online that glitters and is interactive and doesn’t involve us as much. Between loving adventure and discovering new and remarkable people and places, and just wanting a quiet place to settle down to create meaningful routines and get back into eating right and exercising regularly. Between just wanting to sit and read Messages of the Masters for five days and having all these nice people to see and stuff to do (or the other way around). And, here, too, between having as little hands touching our funding and between finding a viable solution that will allow us to travel and live with hassle-free access to our money.
If you love what we are doing, please, please share it on Google+, Facebook, Stumbled Upon and whatever floats your boat. If you want to get into the ‘inner circle’ where I sincerely bow to you who have followed and care about the details of our lives, and offer you a newsletter with crazy stuff that I just don’t publish that I still want to share- pictures, video, and text that don’t appear anywhere else online. Just join the rss or write me a note on the contact form saying you want to get the newsletter and when we start publishing that, you’ll get it with love.
We’re determined to inspire others to lead the lives they are meant to. The Saving For A Dream e-book is your first step towards making that dream come true. It is also a kind, generous donation from you to help us continue our voyage.
So, buy it for yourself or a friend. Thank you,
Kobi, Gabi, Solai, Orazi and Dahnya Klaf
