land/lots/hut livin

« on: June 19 2009 16:06:00 »

I want to leave Canada and just live on a simple stretch of beach, build a simple hut, and surf everyday till the day I die. I only get 2 weeks out of the year to travel to Tofino and it isnt near the amount of time I would like to spend on riding. I dont want anything too fancy, i'm planning on having around 60000 canadian before i decide to do this. will this be enough money to live simply on after buying some land? I know this might sound crazy but i think in the exact opposite of most greedy people. For instance, the amount of money I make here is worth more other places is it not? Im just sick of how much money is wasted for so little when all that money can retire me in another country. I've been lookin at lots on the net but know there are cheaper places. Any locs wanna help me out here?
