Re: JollyScot's Journey Starts

Is it Japan or Tokyo you want? There are organic farms and off the track communities where you can live and eat for free if you hang out and help a bit. And villages where you can stay rent free in an old house if you just live there and maintain the garden. The country is huge, the opportunities en...

Re: An ERE-er in the news!

Victor K, elitist or not, to me ERE has been a huge inspiration as a way of living that does not focus on how much money you need/have but on how you actually chose to spend your time and your ressources. It might be worthwile to notice that one of the E's in ERE stands for 'exteme' and that there a...

Re: Journal From A Dane

Have you considered living in the vacation house during (some part of) summer and renting out your usual home during that period? Eiher Airbnb or just to someone who stays for the full period. It will easily provide you with more than 7.5k DKK

Re: An ERE-er in the news!

Saving a million and retiring in her thirties does not make her ERE. I didn't read the article, but is she aiming at reducing her imprint on the planet and into systems thinking? A million is also way more than the typical ERE goal, why does she want that much? I think it is essential to keep in min...

Are you aware of the meetup we have next month on 15 July? It is about an hour south of Copenhagen, but most of us are from Copenhagen and it is a good opportunity to get to know likeminded souls irl.

Jacob, you are even worse off than that.

Re: Living in Denmark: tips, challenges and questions

OMG, this country seems like a huge control freak. So much regulation to try to force people to work more. And to stay within the country all their lives. I wonder if we will see an increased number of people who take charge of their own lives and themselves decide when and where and how much they w...

Aloha Friends, Somewhere @knap82 wrote about "a trip away from the normal everyday life" and somewhere else @badhorse wrote about needing a trip as "an escape" from xxx. But, hey, isn't it preferable to organize one's life so that there is no need for escapes or trips away from it? I see the point o...

Re: Thought Experiment/Question

I would take courses in how to direct and make documentary films. And then start making some, including hiring staff.

Probably also attend more long term yoga workshops.

Re: CreativeGirl´s road to freedom

Seems you are so much on the right track. So when do you expect to quit working full time? Judged from your total networth it could be very soon.

If one of my friends were telling me the stuff you just did, I would encourage him to quit looking for the spice to life and go for life itself. What is the point of living for the future if the present is a nightmare? Reconsider your priorities, your web of goals, and figure out what each of your a...

Re: lilac's journal

Congratulations! It sounds wonderful. And as someone wrote somewhere in another thread, worst case scenario is that you might have to get another job some day. So I would say, go for it, enjoy fully and then take life from there.
