Last weekend a friend told me about some people she knew who took two years off their North American dream and worked in Saudi Arabia.
They came home and retired on the savings.
I love British Columbia. I love Vancouver. I even love (most of) Vancouver’s suburbs. But it is insanely expensive to live here. The ability to do what these people did – to live with little to no financial stress – is wildly appealing.
Except I wouldn’t do so well in Saudi Arabia.
