This episode is part of a series in which Dan and Ian attempt to answer one of the fundamental questions that many location-independent entrepreneurs eventually ask themselves: If I can live anywhere, where should that be?

On this week’s show, they will be focusing on two countries in Southern Europe: Spain and Portugal.

To learn a bit more about Portugal, Dan reached out to Dr. Shannon Weeks, a Natropathic Doctor and Applied Kinesiologist, to share his experience about establishing residency in Portugal and his home city of Lisbon.

You’ll also hear a little bit of Dan’s own personal story, as both he and his girlfriend have recently established residency in Spain.

Listen in as Shannon and Dan give their perspectives on visas, taxes, culture and more.
