How to move to Ibiza and feel good about it
Every morning I listen to Morning Sounds on Ibiza Global Radio. The music is perfect for getting ready for a new day. Happy and enjoyable tunes are broadcast there. When preparing breakfast I am always humming along with the songs, but I never listen to the lyrics really… until last Wednesday when I heard a song that brought me right back to The Netherlands again. The singer sings: ‘How does it feel when you wake up in the morning and you look outside your window and it’s raining again… raining again?
Hello Summer in Ibiza!
Another month has passed by and summer has really hit Ibiza! With temperatures above 30 degrees and high humidity, it is lovely sticky weather. Since I have lived in the north of Europe for a long time, I’m used to running around, doing as much as I can in one minute without feeling the heat. One of the reasons why I came to Ibiza was to slow down: to stop running around like a fool and to enjoy life a little more while relaxing. Well, that didn’t work out as well as I hoped it would. Granted, I wasn’t running anymore, but still did some sort of jogging, until summer started with the warm temperatures. There was no escaping it anymore. I HAD to stop running! And that’s a huge blessing, so thank you Ibiza.
Are you ready to give up everything for your move to Ibiza ?
At the time I am writing my blog I am enjoying another warm evening in the campo and think of what kind of advice I can write, if you want to live on Ibiza. Actually, that’s very hard to think of. Of course I can write about where to do the cheap grocery shopping, where to learn Spanish, how you get your NIE or residencia, how to buy a car and so on. However, I think that the first step is to find out if you really want to make the move to Ibiza. Do you want to give up everything? Do you want to quit your job not knowing whether you will find one here? Give up your friends, family, social life, work and all your everyday habits? Can you let everything go and plunge into the deep? If yes, you could be ready to go. For us, it took us almost 6 years to reach this point in our lives.
So once we made the decision to go, we started to fantasize how our life would be on Ibiza.
believe in your decision and dreams
So once we made the decision to go, we started to fantasize how our life would be on Ibiza. We visualized the house, the feeling, the climate, everything really, but without expectations. We looked at 15 houses and found one that we dreamt of before. And now, we are living the life we have dreamt about. We thank Ibiza every day for it. It’s amazing how everything flows and how easy it goes when you are positive and believe in your decision and dream. And that’s exactly my thought when I was listening to this song on Wednesday morning. I almost forgot the feeling what it is like to wake up in the morning and it’s raining again. And if it does once in a while, I am still happy, because I am living my dream and I feel intensely happy.
Now it’s your turn
We love to hear your dreams and experiences about your move to Ibiza. We hope that we inspire you to follow your heart instead of your mind. It is never the right time to take action so we always say just do it and enjoy the path of making your dreams a reality. When do we see you in Ibiza?
