Let’s take the latest retreat as an example, the seven-day jaunt in the French castle: $2,500 = 2,500 baguettes = 1,250 Ricards (cheap and tasty French liquor) = 500 kebabs = 250 concerts = 83 new harmonicas = 35 metro passes for the next 3 years = renting a house in Portugal, on the beach, for eight straight months.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
