In a brutally honest and painfully funny voice, the reader is treated to an entertaining account of a couple’s decision to do what many of us may consider at some point … to pack up and move to another country in search of the “good life.”
In meticulous detail, their initial “scouting” trip is recounted in Part One. Their introduction to a new culture is a treat for the armchair adventurer. In Part Two – the dollar and sense pros and cons of becoming “Intentionally Unemployed” is explored. And Part Three describes the reality of “Life in Paradise” - from budget concerns to living so far from family members at times of crisis.
This book is a delightful blend of life anecdotes, adventure story, travel guide and relocation guide - all told with a healthy dose of humor. It is packed with tips for those considering the same possibility of leaving the “rat race” for their own Paradise. It is also a wonderful read for those of us content to experience this life changing adventure vicariously through the author.
The exotic settings sound so beautiful (minus the bugs), that even if one is not tempted to uproot and move to Costa Rica, it will certainly become a temptation to vacation there. Something for everyone in this gem – it is entertaining, poignant, informative and brilliantly written. BRAVO! Five stars!
The book is full of humor and straight talk. Greg's love of Costa Rica is apparent, but he doesn't gloss over the very real challenges of living there. Because I've lived in Grecia, I can attest to the accuracy of his account, and my husband and I share his love of Grecia and understand the sense of humor needed to deal with life in that little coffee town.
The book was hard to put down---well done!
This book tells the story of how they made their move.
Easy to read.
I feel like I know Greg and Jen even though we have never met.
Highly recommended for anyone thinking of heading to Costa Rica.
