  1. I just read your story in a website and found your blog . You are awesome ! The life style that you have (planning for retirement before 40 , going abroad for vacations and even having a cat ! ) is my and my wife dream. We are living in Winnipeg now and we spend almost the same amount of money. However, I almost got disappointed about living in Vancouver by reading those stories about how expensive living there is , but you ignited my hope again and thanks for that !
