Hedonism on a Budget

Imagine taking a month long holiday to the tropics, enjoying fabulous food and sinking yourself into the luxury of 20 massages over 20 days. You could do it for less than $2,400, including airfare from Canada or the U.S.  A guest post that I wrote for the Vancouver based blogger at Young and Thrifty is meant to tempt you….really tempt you.  …read the article

  2. It's my wife's birthday today, so I wanted to honor it with a photo of her on a great Thai beach! We're off to do some water skiing and stand up paddle boarding in about half an hour….to celebrate, of course!

  3. Your wife is beautiful! Is she a teacher as well?

    Happy Birthday to Mrs. Hallam!

    And thank you for your beautiful guest post- I am inspired and very excited for Thailand.

    Have a great day water skiing!

  4. Thanks Young,

    My wife teaches Spanish at the same high school I work at. And she's even lovelier on the inside.

    She's also practically fearless, and up for any adventure….which makes our lives a lot of fun!

  5. Nice post Andrew over at Y&T.

    A very HAPPY BIRTHDAY Pele!

    I would love to visit Thailand someday! Hopefully my wife and I can make some part of Asia, our next trip!

  6. A happy belated birthday to your wife!

    Your guest post at Y&T was tempting indeed and like others, I greatly appreciate the invitation to meet up and spend time together in such a gorgeous location. I would really like to meet you one day Andrew.

    On a related note, MOA, Dividend Ninja and a host of Canadian bloggers will likely be attending a Canadian personal finance conference in Toronto next fall. If I recall correctly, you're taking a year off to promote your book. It would be such a great opportunity to see you there if you could pull it off. Who knows, maybe the organizers (Preet & Krystal) would invite you as a guest speaker! God knows you would add value to such an event.
