I Got Her...Now Back To Work!

Last Update: June 27, 2014

For those of you that have been following me for a while you know that was planning to move to Cape Town, South Africa to be closer to my girlfriend! It has been over a year since I first met her and the last time we saw each other in person (You can read more about it in my previous blog).

Well, the last two weeks I have been absent from Wealthy Affiliate and my personal website because I was making the move to the other side of the world! After about 5 days of traveling, including a stop in St. Louis for a good friend's wedding along the way, I finally made it into South Africa.

This was my sweet ride for the 11 hour plane ride from Munich, Germany to Johannesburg, South Africa! It always amazes me how gigantic these airplanes are...look at the size of the workers compared to the plane!

Customs is always a nerve wracking experience for me but I made it through without a problem. My girlfriend had my place all ready and set up for me with furniture and everything! It took a while to get internet set up but eventually they came and installed it.

Now that I have internet it is back to business. Time to remind Google that I'm still producing content for my site and to follow up with all of my notifications and comments here on Wealthy Affiliate.

The cool thing is that, while I've been away from my site I have still been getting a good amount of traffic, both direct and organic! I take that as a great sign and am excited to get back to producing content on a regular basis!

Finally, here is a picture of my beautiful girlfriend and me:

I'm glad to be back and see you all around and to continue working on my website!

Dustin, I have just gone back to read your post 'Stick with the plans you have' and your story is so motivating! Now, just in case I am wondering... and I am.... what is her name?

With your plan and your work ethic you deserve lots and lots of happiness. May God bless you both.

Wow, you moved from Germany to South Africa? ow did you meet your girlfriend from so far away?
Reply
DustinG Premium
Well, I moved from the USA to South Africa. Germany to South Africa was just the second leg of my trip. Went from Chicago to Munich and then Munich to Johannesburg then Johannesburg to Cape Town.

I was in South Africa in May of 2013 and met her then. She was a friend of a friend and we ended up hanging out quite a bit!
