      Hi everybody

      I live in france and i cant stand it anymore, winter is coming and im gonna get burned out if i dont get out of here soon. Basically, i need sunny holidays for at least 3 months

      I just want to say im not looking for drugs and hooker but a place where i can relax, enjoy the beach, surf, practice MMA/BJJ/Boxing and play some poker

      I've got a friend in Ko Chang, Thailand and it looks beautiful. Problem: he isnt there atm so i cant ask his advice.

      I love learning new language also, atm my interest are german, russian and italian though its not really sea sex and sun over there, but i could still find a roomate or courses about that wherever i go. I also love latina and european girls so Thailand is a little meeh for me (i already had many asian gfs so its not a ignorant rant)

      So what do you think? Any country beside thailand ? Good point is its cheap and i dont have much money on the side atm.

      Buenos aires looks fantastic too but it maybe a bit too expensive :<

      Basically, i'm picturing myself on a sunny afternoon writing seated on the chair of coffee !

      Well if you don't wanna go to Asia and like latina girls then either Mexico, Costa Rica or Panama should be cool and also not too expensive.

      You sound like someone from Game of Thrones.

      I have always thought Abu Dhabi or Dubai seemed like the nuts.

      Yeah if you have 1k daily budget it can be fun, otherwise there's really nothing to do there. The nightlife is non-existant and the local girls sucks as well. Pretty much a bust for me.

      ahah sk345di I'll remember your offer when i rebuild my roll ;p

      I've been to Oaxaca Mexico and loved it but I'd like to discover a new culture even if its a new country. Besides im not that attracted to mexican girl. Maybe i was in the least sexy part of mexico, who knows?

      Panama, Colombia all those countries souds nice I'm thinking Buenos aires, Argentina at the moment. Any of you guys went there? How was it? Or chile maybe ?

      I love soccer also.

      I've been there in january this year (Argentina, I'm Brazilian btw) and their economic situation doesn't look great unfortunately.

      I don't think Brazil is an expensive country to live in, but it should change a loooot depending on where you live.

      Did you consider Spain? It's not the best economy for poker but you are already used to it being in France.

      Southern Spain is great even this time of the year. The prices are a bit lower than in France. You should be able to find a cheap place to live, too.

      It's not that far away either.

      I'm thinking Italy to enjoy the .it

      Problem with spain is they are stuck with the .es and they have nobody, most of their pro went to portugal

      What's the problem with argentina economic situation ? If i play poker it doesnt really touch me does it ? We are all in a crisis tbh, in europe there are warscene in the street of athenes and madrid :(

      I think It'll touch portugal then italiy then france. I'd like to be able to have a BR before so I can avoid WW3 in new zealand or tasmania :D

      Isn't that a good thing? All the pros have left and you're left with the fish... :f_biggrin:

      Pokerstars.es has 37 360 players online at the moment.

      In the evening it's about 80k, I think.

      There is a big economic crisis in Spain, nothing compared to Greece yet but it is coming. People are fighting against CRS (dont know the english force, its like police force but who specialised in dealing with groups).

      Besides I'm not that into Spain, i went there 3 times at least. If most of the pro went t portugal its also because of fiscal reasons.

      I'd rather go to latin america to improve my spanish :)

      Anyway, i've got to grow my roll but i wanna be in thailand for junuary eve! Before, i dont know, maybe i'll look for rooms in paris or germany !

      Australia is good, but there's only one problem. Lots of Australians live here.
