Hindsight is always 20/20.
Truth be told, I felt that the language barrier was too much to overcome to go to Brazil. I went to Europe, it all failed/backfired but did it?
I didn't want to be hooked up to a single mother with two boys, that's basically why I didn't make a bee line for Helibron, Germany when I should have; there are few sure things in life, that was one of them.
It took me eight years to finally go to Brazil.
If I had gone to Brazil in the first place, chances are I'd still be there. I am going back in Sept/Oct.
For myself I have decided real estate is how I'm going to generate passive income. I am preparing myself (building credit) for a real estate collapse in Latin America and in the US.
This was my goal around a decade ago although meeting foreign women wasn't one at the time but a few years later soon became one. Quietly confident about quitting my job and practically retiring by the time I'm 46 which is only 11 months away. A very good constant income without the hassle of dealing with people and minimal overheads was the main objective and things look very promising at this point. I can do this online too which means I'll be able to live abroad if I so wish. It's been extremely hard work though.
Creating a YouTube Channel and living abroad seems to be quite common. There are quite a few guys doing this in the Philippines centred around their life in the country although one admitted he only makes around $80 per month. I suppose you'd need to have millions of hits to make this a worthwhile venture.
Freelancing is another great way to make money whether abroad or stateside.
If you try reducing your hours at most companies in the U.S., you'll be fired quicker than it would take to fly to the Philippines or Eastern Europe.
You can book in advance but you have to be very quiet about it. The minute word goes out, everyone will pressure you not to go. You're right, just book in advance. When the day comes, just leave and don't say a word.
If you get disappointed with one place, you are more than free to visit another. If you get bored or disappointed again, go to another. You are free to go wherever you want. You are not a tree.
