Surviving Franklin 

The Yucatán peninsula was inundated by a Tropical storm system named Franklin. As Franklin made its way across our region it spoiled Paradise for awhile. I feel sorry for the tourists that came for their vacation with their dreams of tropical blue water and skies that were ruined by Franklin. Hopefully as the storm moves on its way the beautiful norm will return and then everybody can emerge from their hiding spots and enjoy this tropical paradise.

Paradise, Where Else

Another reason why you should move to Paradise, crystal clear waters all around. Everyone knows about the beautiful waters in the tropical areas of the world, but until you actually swim and take them in is when you really appreciate them. Come see and feel the waters for yourself in Paradise.

Expat Quiz: Answers

Hey my fellow Friend’s and Blogger Buddies! It’s time for the answers to the expat quiz posted earlier this month.

  1. Can you use your driver’s license from home to drive? Yes. You can use your license from home to drive a rental car or your personal vehicle.
  2. Do I have to speak Spanish to be able to get by? No not really…if you have Google translate you can make it just fine. I’ve been here a year and I’m about 25% Spanish able…
  3. Am I able to get my prescriptions filled in Mexico? Yes. My Wife has had no problem with her medication. Actually we save about 50% to 60% than back in the US.
  4. What type budget is needed to support 2 people and 2 pets? Well we live a modest lifestyle and we are comfortable but everyone is different on this subject. We budget around $1200 USD a month all included everything we need. This fluctuates depending on the exchange rate at that time.

I hope this helps someone out there. If you need more in depth information just contact me and I will be glad to provide more details.

Raining in Paradise

Hello again my blogging friends and followers! Yes, as the title says, it’s raining in Paradise. As I look out my window at the rain and see the birds at play, I can sense the plants and animals sighing in relief from the heat wave that has been over the region for a while now. This rainy break gives you time to catch up on all your “To Do’s” that you’ve been putting off around the house. Most of the time when it rains it is only for a short spell then it moves off, and then the beautiful blue skies return again, but lately this major weather front is hanging around and giving us soaking rains. Don’t get me wrong raining in Paradise is a part of life we all must endure. As for living in a tropical climate, it is expected, and most local people just go about their normal activities in life and others take the time to enjoy playing in the rainfall. I’m sorry for the vacationers that are here now, as they won’t get the blue sky tropical Paradise feel that is the norm around here. Better luck next time in the future for your next trip here to Paradise!
