A granny flat is a mini apartment on someone's property. Usually where someone has rebuilt their garage. We live in a one bedroom granny flat that used to be a bigger garage. We have our own entrance, kitchen and bathroom.

I've been very fortunate. Being Swedish we get a lot of support from the government when we study and I was also working part time. Any job in Sweden is legally required to pay a wage big enough to live on. So between everything I made enough money to travel to Australia once a year, travel in Europe whenever I had a long weekend available, and once I graduated and started working full time to save up for a visa to Australia. I've managed to travel to 54 countries this way. But I was also extremely frugal with everything else. And my fiancÚ was supportive every step of the way.
Together since 2010. Waiting since 2013.
