Welcome To Ocho Sin Coche!

The name comes from a three month trip we took to Southern Spain in the Fall of 2019. My wife and I took our six kids and traveled through nine different cities, all without renting a car (or minibus!) the whole time we were there.  “Ocho sin coche” = “eight without a car” in Spanish.

A little more about me:

  • I’m a software engineer, working for a startup in the information security field.  All of my views reflect are my own and do not reflect my employers views
  • I have 6 kids, ages 18 to 7 (as of July 2020)
  • I love all things investing
  • I love optimizing things financially

Why am I blogging? I like talking about financial matters a lot and this gives me an outlet to explore my thoughts.  Additionally, I’ll sometimes get asked about a particular topic, and sometimes it’s easier to point someone to a blog point for followup. I’m semi-anonymous, sharing my posts with friends and family, and shy away from sharing too much detail for that reason.
