Internet Marketing allowed us to make a dream come true

( Back after a *long* break... )

Here's the story: It was always mine and my wife's big dream to move to Southern Spain. I always dreamed how great it would be to do IM while you are sitting at the pool, under the Sun.

On September 1st, we made our dream true. With some luggage and three cats we hopped on a plane and moved to Southern Spain, near Alicante.
( We also found a mover's company for the rest of our stuff, big screen TV and so forth.

I need to say it was one of the best decisions of our life, weather, sun, everything is just amazing.

Although not "rich" by a long-shot, being in internet marketing, totally independent, being able to work whenever and wherever you are made this possible and i am very proud of it.

There was some fear first because i did not know what would happen with my web sites. They need to be maintained and rebooted occasionally. What if the sites stop working, things like that... The other problem was that we didn't know how long it would take to get Internet in Spain and how reliable it would be.

All turned out well since it took them less than a week to install our internet, and for the temporary time where we didn't have internet there was an internet cafe just around the corner...

Thanks to IM, you can live everywhere, especially if you have passive money coming in from web sites. You can literally make money while you are laying out in the sun ...

    Congrats on achieving your dream, and to me there is no official definition of "rich."

    For some, it might be doing what they love doing when they want to do it, and internet marketing certainly provides that opportunity.

    Great story George.

    We moved to Thailand as charity work is what we love doing.

    You are so right!
    That's the beauty of internet marketing. I was just discussing this with someone earlier today, about how much I love the fact that I get to travel whenever I want and work whenever I want. Wishing you all the best!

      George,
      That is sooo great! I'm sooo happy for you!

      I want to move to the Caribbean and do exactly the same thing. But I've gotta wait til the short people reach the height of 18 year olds.

        Congratulations! I'm so happy for you

        It's great that only money was holding you back from moving.

        I'm too attached to some people here that probably aren't good for me in the long run but I just couldn't imagine moving away from here.

        I guess everything is just a short plane flight away those days but ugh I just can't stand the thought.

          Thank you!

          I lived in the states for about 8 years before, moved back to Germany. This is when i "really" started with IM. No kids, not really any ties except that my sister and dad live in Germany. Wife is american, doesn't really speak German but speaks Spanish fluently. So many things speaking for that move.

          The flight is amazing, it's barely 2 hours, crossing the Alps, mediterranean Sea...wonderful. So basically, if we want to visit back home or anyone coming here they can do that in 2 hours, and the flight costs less than the cab to the airport...

    The independence and flexibilty is what makes this so amazing. I'd rather make $6k a month this life style than $30k a month but be tied down to a clock watching job any day.

    I love this post. Everything about it says that your current circumstances are so 'right' for you in ways that it's impossible to put a price on, and that with the right attitude and all the amazing resources available to us online, everyone else can achieve their own idea of paradise on earth in the same way.

    Lovely. There aren't the words to convey the 'feelgood factor' that this one has generated here. I hope everyone else is feeling the same awesome 'Waltons Mountain-ness' of it too Thanks for this one, George, and congratulations to you and yours
