Thanks guys. Being still in my 20s, it feels even more special :)

@Felipe
I don't have any advice for you on finding places, I'm currently living for 9 years in same flat.

I'm thinking about that hike. Did you make hotel reservations ahead or walk in each night?? The latter would be convenient if you didn't end up on the street often.

I never prebooked any hotels, as it kills flexibility and freedom. And by using hotels you miss one of the best part of trips like this:

This month I did four multiday hikes, to use last bits of british summer (if 5'C nighttime and 15'C daytime you can call a summer)

That's over half a year already! During this time I managed to climb Great Wall of China, hike in Himalayas, get married and did few other things. I'm doing strong, but still have some "what if" thoughts from time to time, but there is nothing to worry about. Everything can be fixed. That was the best decision ever and I will never regret it.

Life is good.

That will be two years in two weeks time since FIRE! I got few curious indirect questions how I pay my bills, haha. Life is crazy as never before. I bought some rental properties, two tiny apartments few blocks away from city center and refubrished them all by myself to do some real work and get 8% net returns, which is great.

Currently savings status: 42.7years of expenses, more than ever before, woohoo.

Just read the whole journal, inspiring. It seems your WR is quite low, so you should still be able to increase your assets over time. All that while still in your twenties - impressive. Which European country are you from? Wild guess: Poland?
