Hard working and trying to hold together the money until takeoff 😉
Also we were lucky to find a pretty affordable condo on Maui where we are staying most of the time. But still we had to check if the condo is available, are there any cheap flights during that period which are suitable for two small children. So quite a lot of coordination and researching at the evening.
Speaking of that: we are both not working 100% in order to be there for our children. But living in Stuttgart is not that cheap and traveling to Hawaii even worse. So we both started a side job where we are working at night when the children sleep and don’t need us anymore. We started this shortly after the birth of our first child (now 3 years ago) and luckily we were able to extend this during the last year.
