Why do you take six weeks in your early ’30s and head out on a trip around the world?
Jen Smialek from TheHappyHomeowner just returned from her trip, which cost just less than $5k.
How did she cut costs so much?
What places did she love?
Which will she never visit again?
How does she like tear gas in her face?
What did she think of getting the same pyramid treatment that President Obama and Oprah received?
We answer all these important questions on the show….

Note: Usually, as you probably know, the Short Stack is a 10-15 minute podcast. In this case, we went a whopping 42+ minutes! Jen had some incredible stories and takeaways, so I let the tape run…and I think you’re gonna love it as much as I did. However, if you only have time for 15 minutes, don’t worry….there’s still plenty of good stuff (and most of the financial points) packed into the early discussion.

Awesome. I have GOT to cycle that road. It looks immense!
Looking forward to hearing the interview.
Great interview, but I got really hung up on one question in the beginning- is that really what I sound like?
