Welcome all to our Mexican Adventure!!
I have never blogged before, but looking back on my teenage years, I loved writing poetry & stories, so now that I have lots of new free time, I think I will become a “blogger”.
It all started in October, 2016 when I took off work (as a nurse at an insurance company) to take care of my hubby, Rich when he had a difficult back surgery. Even though it was painful and tough on both of us, him more than me, of course.
We realized that we really loved our
quality time together and knew that we needed a way to get more of it!!
You see, Rich is 10 1/2 years older than me and we both have health issues, so as no one knows how much time we have in this world, we decided that we had to make some serious changes in life!!
I had been working 9 1/2 hours Monday thru Friday and we only got to spend time together for a few hours each night and we wanted more. I was in a very stressful job which was getting increasingly more stressful daily and I wanted to be “unchained” from my desk!!
I had started reading International Living articles online about living overseas in Central and South American countries for much less than we were spending in Fort Myers!!
Unbeknownst to me, many retired people have been moving to these countries for years to help make their retirement dollars stretch as far as possible and I thought this may be something that we could do too!!
When I first mentioned moving to another country, Rich said, “We can think about that later.” and I said, “we will never be any younger than we are right now…”
He agreed and so our journey started…
