Sitting here Memorial Day weekend 2014, this is a good time to reflect on what led us to decide to pick up our belongings and move to Costa Rica. In a nutshell, we have grown more and more dissatisfied with the direction the U.S. is heading, and we’ve simultaneously discovered a beautiful, inviting country just to the south that is calling our name.
We don’t feel the need to lay out our complaints about the U.S. here, since many folks are more than happy with what has happened over the past 10-15 years. And to borrow from Pharrell, if you’re happy, we want you to stay that way! That’s what we’re shooting for, after all.
Costa Rica offers our family a remarkable opportunity to focus on the things that have become so important to us…real freedom, healthy diet, friendly people, and a beautiful, scenic country. The past few months have laid the ground work for our big move, and the coming weeks will see our preparations ramp up to full speed.
What do I hope to accomplish with this blog? I’d like to share the process of moving to a new country with our friends and family, and keep everyone posted on the progress. Check back weekly, as I’ll have regular updates.
Thanks everyone. I’m happy to have you along for ride!
