March: The beginning of the travel expenses for the Big Tran-siberian Train Trip – including $20,000 first-class plane tickets for $300. Plus, a dentist visit.
This month was marked by high household expenses, new bike brake pads, and pretty low restaurant spending.

I’ve been posting my new years resolutions online and then reviewing my success at the end of the year. 2016 was a giant cluster of crazy where absolutely nothing worked out the way it was planned. 2016, in a nutshell, was unpredictable: 3 totally different careers, a jump into self-employment, moving house with a week’s notice, a crazy presidential election, and, well, we’ll see how that did in the resolutions:
