    Nope. Not one bit.

    I will graduate next year and whilst my friends worry about buying houses with their girlfriends (or the single friends who worry about buying things for their many cats) I'm sat here worried about the next place I'm going to travel to. I've already travelled extensively on my own, with randomers, with family etc but there are still major places I need to cross out.

    The linear paradigm that is A levels > uni > job > career > kids > divorce > nice car bores me and I can already see my friends going down that route. If that's what you want - fair enough. But if you're not happy at any of the stages then re evaluate.

    Next stop,

    The sunny beaches of Brazil.

    I googled Wizard Sleeve and Urban Dictionary came up with an interesting response. Is this the same definition you use??

    Holiday's have no measurable value.

    I would rather have a mortgage and a nice house than holidays which simply fade away in our memories.

    Than again, I am partial to the odd trip to the continent now and again.

    What price range are we talking for your 'nice' house?

    Every experience, ever, simply 'fades away in our memories'. Whilst we lie on our deathbeds...that's exactly what is going to happen.

    You probably aren't having very exciting holidays if they just fade away in your memories.

    I also travel a lot except I have two mortgages/buy to let properties and essentially they're paying for themselves I rarely take anything out of my salary to pay them (once or twice). There are smarter ways to do things after they're paid off I essentially will have 3k of rental income a month - taxes/bills/upkeep and it's still a lot of free cash. Honestly having lived all over the place in east asia (I worked remotely for a time) most of the backpackers I know are dirt poor and in for shock when they get home. Depends what one is looking for I suppose but a house is never a poor investment even if the housing market were to freeze.

    Best of both worlds.

    Most young people can't afford houses nowadays.

    I consider myself quite lucky as I've got a house of my own worth about 150k.

    I'm not rich or anything.

    I'm just average, but young people my age are still living with parents and have a mortgage, so I guess I'm quite lucky

    That's highly inappropriate. Are you doing it on purpose ?

    There appears to be some sort of esoteric in-joke here that I don't get. :nothing:
