We are Scott and Caroline, 40-somethings who have spent our entire lives in New York City and raised 2 kids. Our younger one is off to college in fall of 2019, so for the last few years we’ve been focused on how to achieve financial independence and retire early. We’re looking forward to a flexible, travel-centric lifestyle once we are empty nesters.
Our plan is to use places we already own in New York City, Jacksonville FL, and Tamarindo Costa Rica as our home bases, as well as rent AirBNB in the Philippines as a local hub for travel in southeast Asia.
For more on our journey to date and future plans, check out this great feature over at The Three Year Experiment.
A big part of our FIRE plan has been investing in rental real estate, which we have done for over 10 years. In the last year we have invested in three Costa Rica vacation rentals that help move us closer to the FIRE finish line!
