Alright guys, you can all breath a sigh of relief. I tried something and it didn’t work out.. it happens. In my quest to monetize the blog, I installed adf.ly on the site. It was supposed to give me money for each view/click on a link. Well, I’m now rich as I made a whopping $0.10 per day from it! Since it ran for 4 days… I made an incredible $0.38!!! A piece of gum is on me today – but only one. Really thought, it’s too much of an annoyance on us...

Ave from “Made in Canarias” and I started a new website – Home Life Abroad. It’s all about our experiences living abroad, as well as advice,  all sorts of articles, reviews and giveaways, and more! Please support us and follow the site! I also just published an article there about my 20 kilo weight-loss (yep! 20 kilos -> 44 pounds).  It’s a little odd to post about something so personal, but Home Life Abroad seems like the appropriate place...
