This post is a sequel to Money: The first 4 months. Please see the first post in order to understand the following information better.
Here’s what we spent for the second 4 months (120 days):
For the first 5 weeks we lived in Granada, we stayed about 4 km outside of the main downtown area. After touring Nicaragua with our visiting family, we spent our final 9 Granada days right in the center of town: one night at an AirBnB and then the rest of the time house and pet sitting. Our house sit home was lovely, with an open air kitchen and dining area, two balconies, two ensuite bedrooms, and another half bathroom.

My Committed! post provided only our starting point (Quito, Ecuador) and no further travel details. Not surprisingly, many have assumed that we are moving to Ecuador, which is not the case. Our plan, and I use that word loosely, is to be nomadic, in other words, to stay somewhere until we decide it’s time to move on (within the constraints of tourist visas, of course).
