That's a great article and of even greater interest to me because I would love to travel or live abroad while making money online. It never occured to me before, since I hadn't really started online business last time I was abroad (in China) but making a small amount of money which may lead to trouble in LA could be a huge amount of money living somewhere else.

It always helps to know more than one language. I can speak fluent German and I did a lot of translating while I lived in Germany. I did correspondence between England, USA and Germany.

It definitely helps a lot to learn more than one language.
This me with my 2 kids and husband. Wow, I'm fat!!!

W: It certainly does. How did you make money when you were in Germany? Did you only work as a translator? Or did you do something else too? Isn't it hard getting a job as a translator as you need a lot of experience and credentials?

I did translations of documents in private and also where I worked. I worked in an Accounting office. That's while I was going through college too. I didn't do a translation job just on its own, it was tied into my job because of dealing with German and Austrian companies. The pay is so much better in Europe too.

I have been speaking Japanese for ages, but I certainly don't want to live there. It's one of the few places more expensive than living in LA. I want to go some place relaxing and cheap were a small online business will ammount to considerable comfort.

Wow!! Japanese??? That's impressive. And YES, Japan is very very expensive. I have never been there but I have heard that. Plus, I have dated a Japanese man before too. One of my biggest dreams is to travel to Asia one day. As much as I love Asian Culture, I have not had the opportunity to go to Asia yet. Funny isn't it?

I guess probably somewhere in South America would be a good place to live and operate a small online business because the cost of living is not so high. Somewhere like that anyway.

Thanks to Winston, I am planning to check out the Philippines as well. I also might try Brazil for a spell and see how that is. There are so many opportunities out there.

I'm surprised you haven't travelled to Asia. I love hanging out there. My time in China was immensely fun. I have never had an experience like it before or since.

Why didn't you use your fluent German skill to me, Dianna? :?: Was I too boring for you? You are the one with attention issues, right?
