>HOW ARE WE DOING ANYTHING ILLEGAL??? Can someone answer this??

I answered that question in the post you quoted.

I said:

>The points being made above...........and what you must research.....is whether the type of work you are proposing to do in the countries you intend to visit is allowed on a visitor visa (or a visa waiver in the case of the UK/Ireland, Australia and the Schengen countries).

It may be, it may not be...and if it isn't allowed, it is illegal.<

I'll put it more simply: if remote working (even for yourself) is considered by border officers in a particular jurisdiction to fall within the concept of 'working'...and it may, or may not......then doing so on a tourist/visitor visa is illegal. You will be breaking the law. Whether you, I or anyone else think about that is irrelevant. It is as it is.

You perhaps do not realise that each and every country (including those within both the EU and the Schengen Area [they are not coterminous]) has its own laws and its own processes.

In any country (including the USA) it is the border officials who deal with you on the day you arrive who may decide to question you further. They have every right to do so, as they wish. They have the right to ask detailed questions about your intentions and ask for documentary proof. They have the right to refuse you entry, regardless of whether your citizenship does not require a visa, or you hold a visa waiver, or a full visa. That is the reality.

If your plan is to be successful you obviously need to fully research the requirements and relevant laws for each country....and that is what people have been advising.

I do hope that clarifies.

That is awesome! I'd suggest maybe adding Portugal to that list as a free place to live, it is one of, if not the cheapest country in Europe. I was just there and can not speak more highly of the people, culture, food, and all there is to do.

That is really a good sugestion. I don't know about it being the cheapest in Europe, having travelled through Serbia I would say that country beats it by 60%;). But it certainly ins't an expensive country and cheaper than Spain. Lisbon is a beautiful city, full of history fantastic food and bar scene, a funky art culture and would make a great base to explore the country. Portugal isn't that big, you could do a lot in three months based in Lisbon.
