We are just blessed to have fantastic weather here.

Yes...I have worked in silicon valley quite a bit. In 90 I was living in Campbell for 8 weeks and was able to take weekend trips as we could not work on weekends back then. I went up to heavenly valley and reno and places like that. I was back and forth to california many times for work. Usually silicon valley.

And EUR3,000 after tax per month would be a VERY good salary in Germany. That is 36,000 per year after tax which would put you on EUR65,000 or so depending on tax rates in your area.

I can tell you that is a LARGE salary in germany. You are talking senior IT person for that kind of money. Salaries are FAR lower in germany than the UK for the same position. Mainly because cost of living in germany is much lower too.

good info - thanks

gsjackson wrote:As for a visa in France, my understanding is you can get it with a certain amount of income from out of the country. It's a bit more than Germany, but I'm guessing $3,000 a month should qualify, even for a family. I mention the southwest part of the country because that's where you probably could live on $3,000. To make it in Paris or some other parts on that, you'd have to ditch the family.

This article confirms what you said here. ... arter-kit/
