As some of my dearest readers may remember... Gustavo and I built a house. We were COMPLETELY in love with the house and PICKED everything... Long story short, after many missed deadlines and an unsightly tree...

We decided that we no longer wanted the house.
My heart was BROKEN! I had everything shipped and ready to move in...

THEN- We found a second house that honestly, was not everything we wanted... But it was ok. In the end, Gustavo talked me out of that house too! (Thanks Babe!!! Good Call!!!)

I am getting closer to the DIRTY THIRTY and I am feeling the need to SETTLE. I am looking for the 3 S's (Safety, Security, Stability)

One thing that I love about Gustavo is that he is like me as far as adventure, travel and taking the easier but not so traveled road!

We have NO intention of returning to AMERICA. Not to live.

We are setting our sites SOUTH of the border to Central America!

Most people just look at us like we are crazy when we tell them that we are going to Nicaragua; but heck, we are used to those looks!

Here are our main reasons:

1. Low cost of living: 1 USD to 24.40 Nicaragua cordoba

2. Low MURDER rate (13:100,000) Steady for 5 years:)

3. Beautiful weather, cheap medical and a fresh start!




  1. Sounds like a brilliant idea. I've concluded 'home' really is where the heart is. You can easily settle and be happy anywhere in the world as long as you're surrounded by those you love. I'm so happy for you both!! Wishing you all the best.

    1. AG- You are SO right! It is just that we have been away so long! I know that no matter where we end up, that things will work out. We just have to have faith!

  2. Exciting idea. Love your since of adventure. Will you open a business as well?

    1. You are an ADVENTUROUS woman as well! Are you going to end up staying in Kuwait? Am I getting invited to the Wedding? :) I am sure we will open a business. We are planning a trip now to go and check it out!

  3. I will definitely visit, looks beautiful. You know me i saw the pics and thought about the awesome pics I could take there! lol
