What Would You Do With 1 Million Euros?

Last week I read a fantastic blog post published by Mr. RIP from Italy, titled what would you do with 1 million euros.

Apparently this post began last month in the UK FIRE community, where people would run a thought experiment with the following question:

What would you if you got given £1 Million?

Since I’m in continental Europe, I will take up the challenge in euros instead of pounds. In the end, I don’t think it makes a difference anyway.

The article by Mr. RIP was very well written. My mind isn’t that clear yet on this topic, that’s why decided to participate in the experiment, and post in this new category Thoughts on Tuesday. Writing helps me to structure thoughts, so please find below my answer to the question “What would you do if you got given €1 million?”


Refinancing My Apartment to Lower Interest Payments

This week I finally did it. I signed on the dotted line, and promised the bank that I will pay them back a crapload of money. I have been busy refinancing my apartment.

After all the considerations, spreadsheets, and thinking I knew this is a good idea. When you see the official paperwork, and the amount you owe, it’s a different feeling. Suddenly it seems like a lot of money. However, I guess a lot of people wouldn’t consider the mortgage I took out as a high mortgage.
