Arenal Volcano and Lake Arenal in Costa Rica


At FI Road Trip, I write about two passions that intersect in our family’s life: personal finance and travel.

Our family of four has been pursuing financial independence for a decade. We have learned a lot, made mistakes, and have slowly crept toward our goal.

In 2022, we made the choice to move our family from Southeastern Pennsylvania over the pond and landed in the Algarve region of Portugal. Our move was borne of a desire to expose our kids to new cultures but was also in keeping with our focus on personal finance and travel.

This blog is my attempt to provide insight into our learnings, successes, and failures to hopefully pay it forward in return for the many others who have helped us along the way.
