Hi Eureka,

Thank you so much. With such a bad experience, precautions are needed. No worries.

I tried to reschedule for today but without luck, sorry. I'll join you next time.

I hope you had a great meeting today.

See ya!

Hi guys

I have been off the board for a while. Sorry to see that I missed the meetup scheduled for today.

I would love to join the next one.

That was bad timing, cbroenning. Today's meetup was insightful and fun, so better luck next time. Hope to profit of your tax knowledge one day.

Hopefully I'll be able to contribute with that the next time around.

Already looking forward to it.

Hi,
I love in Aarhus, so going to Copenhagen for a meetup is not really a viable solution financially. I gotta' stay frugal :)
Any chance anyone of you takes notes, have a blog, record a song about it anywhere, so that it is possible to know if anyone shared something incredibly insightful?
I run a blog on my journey towards FIRE in Denmark www.frinans.dk in case anyone is interested.

Hi supersune,

Being frugal does not mean that you have to live a boring life. You just need to be a little smart.

You are most welcome to join the next Copenhagen meetup. All you need to do is to rent a private car for the day for say 250 kr (e.g. through gomore.dk) and book your ferry tickets from Molslinjen early enough to get the 'billigbillet' discount (that is 2x249 kr). On top, you will need max 150 kr for gas, totalling 900 kr for the round trip. Then you sell 3 seats of 150 kr as shared rides each way (also through gomore.dk) and you have your 900 kr back plus a free round trip to Copenhagen. And should you manage to get 4 passengers on one or both ways, you will even make a nice profit.

Hi ERE Copenhageners,

Our next meetup is in a week! Anyone who knows any details? @rmb is everything under control? Who is coming?

Here is my suggestion for a preliminary agenda. Input most welcome.

1. Welcome to new people and short since-last-time round

2. Investing in equities, index fonds, bonds ... (anyone who has an article we could all read beforehand or who can do a little presentation to open the discussion?)

3. The ERE Copenhagen group: what do we want to do with it, format of future meetups

4. Groups
A: Housing (purpose of ones dwelling, buying, renting, sharing, subletting ...)
B: Kids (costs, kids savings accounts, raising to frugality ...)

5. Plenum: final exchange of ideas and next meeting

Looking forward!

Meetup will be July, 15 at 13.00 - location is approx. one hour south of Copenhagen (send PM for address).

Program is not fully planed but I think it would include:
* pension plans
* traveling

And since it's a summer edition this meetup will include a bbq :)

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 of travelling to something, if say you want to learn something and the teacher lives somewhere else, but away from your life or your home base in order to get away??

So be prepared to be challenged on this one by me, if 'traveling' stays on the agenda of our next meetup.

Anyway, looking forward a ton and hoping to meet a lot of old and new Danish ERE folks on 15 July!

No arguing there!!
The challenge is just how to go about it so that you can:
1) Be where you want
2) when you want
3) doing what you want
2) with the people you want to be with

Looking forward to finding the solution to this and all of life's other conondrums at the meetup! :mrgreen:

Hi guys.. Great initiative that I'm reading about for the first time just now. Would have loved to join in but summer vacation plans are spoiling that party for me. And since "happy wife = happy life", then no quitting that in the 11th hour. Anyways, would have loved to join in. Next time is hopefully better for me :-D

Enjoy!

Thanks for a good meetup yesterday!

Inspiring presentations on travelling hacks by @rmb and entreprrneurship by @milton, a concise recap of systems thinking by @fbeyer and thoughts on pension by @badhorse. On top of great discussions by all and wonderful hosting and bbq by @wizards.

I feel sorry for those who missed it, but the good news is that there is already another meetup in the pipeline in September/October.

That next meetup will be on 30 September, in Copenhagen. If interested feel free to write here and we can take the practicalities as we get closer.

Hi all,
I would be interested in joining the meetup on 30 September, as I'm also from Copenhagen.
I'm new to this group and to the FIRE idea, although I have always been quite frugal in my living and due to my job as legal advisor has been able to save a decent amount already (but I have not yet begun investing them - apart from paying extra into my pension scheme). I saw the 2016 article in Berlinske about ERE, but have only recently read the book and started to follow a couple of FIRE bloggers.
