Loophole Lifestyle is all about traveling abroad, smart and safe, and making the most out of every stop along the way.
The main focus of the site is Southeast Europe but sometimes touches on other major tourist destinations as well such as the most popular spots to see in the USA, Western Europe, and other foreign places.
Regardless of what region we are writing about, we discuss the best places to see and visit, including where to eat, drink, sleep. We also do our best to warn you where and what to avoid.
Jordan and Zvjezdana
In 2016 these two love birds met by a seemingly random stroke of luck (thanks Facebook!) and quickly fell in love.
The next year, Jordan (formerly Quinn) moved to Croatia, from the USA, where he and Zvjezdana (formerly Farkas) wasted no time tying the knot and merging their last names into one (Quinn Farkas).
An avid traveler, Jordan couldn’t wait for his Native European wife Zvjezdana to show him around Southeast Europe (in 2018) and the couple began taking as many trips as they could afford.
Since then, Zvjezdana gave birth to their son, little Ivan, the light of their life. They also gave birth to this website as well after taking numerous trips to exotic locations like Nova Sad, Zagreb, Pula, Osijek, and Mostar.
The ultimate goal? To share their experiences, living the “loophole lifestyle,” with the world and help those who wish to do the same.
Now the couple writes reviews about coffee shops, restaurants, lodging, tourist attractions, and all of the best things to do and see in the region.
How Loophole Lifestyle Makes Money
Jordan and Zvjezdana both have “real” jobs in addition to working on Loophole Lifestyle.
Jordan is a stay-at-home dad and a professional writer, and Zvjezdana works in the public sector.
In addition to their “normal” income, they also make a bit of extra cash with the help of their online efforts.
For example, Jordan makes a few bucks each month selling independently published ebooks on Amazon Kindle, and Loophole Lifestyle is (or plans to be) part of several affiliate programs, such as the Amazon Associates Program.
That means, from time to time, posts on this site may include links to Amazon products.
If you click on these links and end up buying something, Loophole Lifestyle is eligible (or will be in the future) for a small percentage of the cost of the item (at no extra price to the buyer).
The site may also display ads that are sponsored or work in a similar fashion as affiliate programs. Meaning, when someone clicks on an ad displayed on the site it may generate a small amount of money.
These systems are in place (or will be at some point) to generate enough money to cover the expenses of running the website and potentially some for their time and efforts.
That way, Jordan and Zvjezdana are free to continue sharing a wealth of valuable knowledge about traveling in southeast Europe with their audience at little to no cost.
