Since this is a finance journal, let me reassure you that I had budgeted and planned for all this way before we went travelling. For example, we got a great airbnb in the middle of Taipei and just 5 minutes away from Taipei's super efficient MRT. So we were able to save up on taxi fare and eat some of our meals at the Airbnb. You'd be surprised that the most expensive of all the vacations was the one in Bohol, as we spent that during holy week where the resort charged us double the going rate (it was 15k a night).
All this time spent with family, specially with my kids growing up so fast is ultimately, priceless. So really doesnt matter to me if it hits my NW goals a bit. Speaking of NW here's my latest update:
Would you believe I only had a little more than a million pesos as NW when I started this blog? Time really flies and focus really pays off.
