Citizens of the world do not be afraid to jump outside of your home country. It’s as simple as buying a plane ticket and landing in a country with freedoms you didn’t expect to be available to you. It is a waste of your time to let other people’s politics consume you. Being a nomad is freedom, lack of expected regulations and 100% legal. Some may not understand the whats, whys and hows of what you are about to accomplish but they will soon see the benefits. You will feel confident in knowing that you are keeping more of your own money. And when a country or aspect of living no longer meets your needs you can simply move on. It’s a financial, not an emotional decision.
