Each friday, Kathryn and I share those sites and articles that we are currently reading or have recently read. In this week’s “What We’re Reading”, we’ve compiled a number of articles discovered as we wound our way through the web. This week’s theme: Tips for travellers!
As we’re beginning to think more pragmatically about organizing our finances and staying on top of everything in a ‘location independent’ manner, we’re starting to compile some tips and tricks. Dan and Jillian having been doing just that, and are continuously picking up more and more general tips about travelling. They have compiled them here. Bookmarked!
