Some Statistics Regarding Taiwan; or, What Can $100 Buy You?

Is this the face of an uberpro traveler? You be the judge, have a look at these condensed spread sheets

For the entire 80 days in Taiwan: (“Stalls” refers to street food, fruit shops, peanuts, etc.)

For my 11-day “Huan-dao” trip around the island:

Met new people, saw great sights, ate new foods, got cuddly with nature*, took nice pictures, had some bizarre adventures, and came out on the other end healthy and happy. No carbon emissions, no buying tickets, no doing anything I didn’t want. In other words, bike travel is a superior mode of transportation. Nay, of living! Seriously, think about the last time you spent $100 on something. Did it make you happy? For eleven days?

I thought not.

Seriously, get some investments going that generate $300 a month and you could be doing all of the above without depleting your savings.

Then, COME JOIN ME.

Or do it on your own.

Either way, dump the grind and hit the road.

      Nothing special, just index funds that give back 5-7%. The secret is saving like a madman during normal times and keeping only the bare minimum in low-interest checking/savings accounts.
