One thing that is consistent with almost everyone with whom we speak. . they agree that it was scary. . it was hard at first. . to arrange all of the things that one needs to arrange when moving to another country. Just think how hard it is to move your family across town. . and then multiply that by 100 or so!

​ When it's all over. . when you're sitting in your new abode in some coutryside location in Costa Rica. . watching the sun rise with a brand new day ahead of you. . sipping your coffee that was prepared with the beans that grew less than 50 miles away from where you sit. . it was all worth it! Sitting in silence in a TOTAL RELAXATION MODE, being entirely at peace. . this is your reward for a job well done!

​ When you're hiking in the jungle, listening to the sounds of nature being broadcast in stereo. . when you hear the howler monkeys in the morning acting as "NATURE's ALARM CLOCK". . when you're laying on the beach, listening to the ebb and flow of the lapping waves. . when you're laying back at dusk, waiting for the sun to set. . these are the times that you know for sure that all of your efforts were worth it.
