    Spending summary for 2019

    I know that many people are thinking about jumping into digital nomad lifestyle and they often have a lot of questions. One of those is what is the cost of living in such and such country. I have been a bit obsessed with noting every single transaction for years, so obviously I continue doing that during our travels. It's also…

    New Year in Kuala Lumpur

    It was the beginning of December when we had to leave Sri Lanka and finding a fairly cheap flight and accommodation was a bit difficult due to incoming Christmas and New Year. The cheapest option was Malaysia again. We've been there a few times before and we feel comfortable in Kuala Lumpur so it was no brainer for us to…

    Rainy Sri Lanka

    Our trip to Sri Lanka didn’t start well right from the beginning. First, our flight was 3 hours delayed. Then, when we finally arrived someone asked us if we need a taxi.

    3-month spending in Malaysia

    This time in Malaysia we cooked more meals at home but our groceries were done mostly in big shopping malls so definitely not the cheapest ones. Although, we didn’t really have much choice since all the places we stayed in were far from any local markets. Similarly, any restaurants that we visited from time to time weren’t the cheapest ones…

    Johor Bahru Malaysia

    We went to Johor Bahru mainly because we wanted to make a fast one or two day trip to Singapore. When you look for an accommodation in Singapore on Airbnb many are in Johor Bahru anyway so we thought it's a good way to save some money (Singapore is quite expensive) and visit two places at the same time. A…
