It has been almost 2 years in Europe with my dogs. Only now have I managed to start making some money. For the past 24 months I have survived of my rentals that I get from the eco buildings I built in South Africa and strategically selling everything I own, leaving me with a very old campervan(aka hermit) also my home and my camera with a backpack and everyday crap that is not worth selling. I didn’t mention my dogs as they would never be for sale.
I believe if the love is strong enough, there is no giving up. Anything is possible and yes it is hard. But like climbing a mountain, the effort is well worth the pain when you standing on top of the world.
