    1. I wouldn't say I'm a minimalist, but travel does open one up to the idea of getting rid of the big house and all of the stuff that comes with it. The idea of living in a few different studio or one-bedroom apartments around the world sounds better to me than living in a palace in one country.

      1. Thanks Andrew! Yes, crash pads around the world sounds great :) As renting gets easier and more convenient with sites like AirBnb, the advantages of owning anywhere are reducing so perhaps you wouldn't even need to own the crash pads to have that lifestyle.
