Saudi isn't too bad. (probably not as bad as you would think).  Since the only thing to do here is going to the mall (which we detest!) We can save 80-85% of our salaries.  We live on a secure compound and it is great for young children.  Very good during the accumulation phase.  We live on the east coast so Bahrain is only a 2-hour drive door-to-door to the hotel we go to.  It is also centrally located to Dubai and Istanbul (major hubs that can take us anywhere).  The biggest hassle with travel is that we can't fly to Qatar.

Hi! So happy to discover this treasure trove of inspiration and information! I sent you an email, Curry Crew, with a query about helping edit and fine tune blog posts. This is a heads up, since I think you check these forums more often than the email. The subject line is "Offer to help edit posts"  :)

Hola! everyone from sunny Mérida, Mexico. Moved here about 4 months ago, after our weird type of FIRE... I'm 56 my wife 50 and son is 13. I never planned on retiring as I own my own business(es) that I LIVED for (classic entrepreneur / workaholic personality), but after realizing that I was missing my son growing up, decided to take the plunge... Found this site, and powering through a lot of the info... Thanks for having me!

Hi all, I joined a while ago.  Long time reader of the blog and forum.
First post is the hardest...

Jeremy, thanks for all the valuable education over the years from your blog!  Without your wisdom helping to guide me, I probably would not have retired last month.

Cheers!
LK

Hello everyone,

I've been following Jeremy and Winnie's blogs since 2013. I first discovered FIRE through them and had been trying to save half. last year finally convinced my hubby to FIRE, sold our house and 1 of our cars since then.

registered the forum last year and this is my first post.. (did I hear someone say the first post is the hardest?)

Thanks!
Sandra

ps. it's currently Father's day in Taiwan so happy father's day to Jeremy and big congrats on the new member to GCC family!
