Paradise On Water ~ Talking
With Expats In Bocas Del Toro ~ By Zvia Leibler-Danon - There has been
a lot of talk over the past few years about Bocas del Toro, located on
Panama's northwestern Caribbean coast. A number of expats are now fulfilling
their dream of living in a tropical paradise by buying property in Bocas.
Find out what it takes to make it in Bocas and what is daily life like
for expats who have made it their home. The water, the sun and the forest
are attracting people all the time. See if Bocas is a place you might want
to settle down in for a couple or years or a spot where you might want
to own some land.
perfect sincerity is expected, perfect freedom must be allowed".
You Never Imagined A City Like This ~ Having
Fun In Dubai ~ By Scott Sutton - A lot of people think that living
in the Middle East means having to live in great austerity, but this is
not true in the city of Dubai. The nightlife, the desert and the international
outlook of the people make it an attractive place to spend time in. And
the architecture looks interesting as well.
Travel In Your Own Backyard ~ Exploring
The Garden ~ By Bernie Tetrault - Some great photos in the above article.
Bernie takes you through his backyard in Thailand and introduces you to
some of the beautiful animals and butterflies that inhabit his garden.
It's interesting what you can see in nature if you just take a little time
and look around you: the photos and the writing in this article will help
relax you and may send you off in search of what lies in your garden.
In Chile ~ Part
II ~ By Jon Steele - This is the second article in a two-part series
about living and working in Chile. Can't say enough about what a nice place
Chile is to live in and how interesting the people are to socialize with.
If you travel by bus to the north of Chile look for the sculpture of a
hand rising up out of the desert and if you head south make sure to visit
Torre Paine National Park. There are also the mountains above Santiago
where you can go skiing and the vineyards of the central valley. For the
expat Chile offers everything you could want.

In The Dominican Republic ~ Quite
A Change After The UK! Part 1 ~ By Malcolm Couch - There are
a lot of people who have asked me lately about what's it like to live in
the Dominican Republic, and from what I understand from those who know
the country well, it is a little tropical paradise with all the good and
bad that you associate with living on a small Caribbean island. The parties
are great, the people friendly and the beaches beautiful. There's always
the problems of traffic and electrical cuts but that's par for the course.
Everyone tells me that in the end you have to love the place just for its
Money Overseas - Writing eBooks For EscapeArtist.com -Write
eBooks for Profit - What we're looking for are ideas, not Pulitzer
Prize writers. Ideas are what fuel our magazine and our website.
Now we want to expand that concept into eBooks for expats. You don't
have to be a professional writer to submit a report that provides important
information - - information that you yourself have learned by having been
there and done it. That is exactly what our readers are seeking, facts
about living overseas from people who've done it, facts about buying a
barge and sailing down the Danube, what it takes to migrate to Argentina,
how to open a business in Prague, buy an island in Belize, get a job in
Paris, start a farm in Mozambique, run an internet business out of the
Dominican Republic, run a rent-a-scooter shop in Mauritius.
Yacht Broker - Boats,
Barges, Ships & Yachts From Around The World - We know there
are a lot of expats living on barges in Europe, and an even greater number
living on yachts in the Caribbean. It seems like a good idea to provide
a low cost way to put buyers and sellers in touch with other on an international
basis. It's in keeping with the thrust of our website; international lifestyles,
international living, unique lifestyles, living overseas. What could
be better than living on a barge in France? The only thing I can
think of is living on a yacht in the Caribbean. ...or how about Brazil?
...or Tahiti? If you don't want to live on your yacht, but just park it
in front of your house, we suggest you visit our new Caribbean Real Estate
website and buy yourself a waterfront house in the Netherland Antilles.
You Need To Know About Living In El Salvador ~ A
Forgotten Beauty ~ By Phil Davies - El Salvador is one of those countries
that most people either ignore or know nothing about or are fearful to
visit. And then you talk to people who can talk about nothing else but
El Salvador and why you should visit or move there. The country does have
some stunning spots and the economy has picked up as the political problems
of the 70s and 80s have faded. Now might be El Salvador's time.
on Isla Margarita, Venezuela ~The
Essentials ~ By Daniel O'Brien - This article is very informative because
it gives you the kinds of hard details that you need to know before moving
to a country. And in the case of Venezuela right now that is important.
Daniel O'Brien moved with his wife from Canada to Isla Margarita in the
1980s, so he knows what it takes to set up shop on the island. The island
is connected to Venezuela, but experiences little of the political problems
that face the mainland. People from Colombia and Panama tell me that Isla
Margarita is one of their favorite beach resorts and looking at the pictures
I can see why.
Journey Into Undiscovered Andalucia ~ A
Stone Cottage And Beautiful Landscapes ~ By Mark Medley - Living in
the mountains of Spain just beyond the sea sounds like a wonderful experience.
Mark Medley reports from the mountains of Andalucia and lets us know that
there are some great old stone cottages in the abandon towns of Andalucia.
Internet service is available in these remote regions and most other services
are nearby, but you still have the old rural life of Spain going on around
you. More likely than not you will have to refurbish your cottage and there
are plenty of people who can help you do this. And as anyone who has visited
Spain knows the people, the parties and everything else that has to do
with Spain is great fun.
Estate In Ecuador ~ Beachfront
And Mountains ~ By Jorge Loor Zambrano - Another place that people
have been asking me about lately is Ecuador. People want to know about
buying real estate in the mountains or down on the beaches of Ecuador.
Most want to know something about the economy and what is happening with
the political situation within the country. From what I hear the new president
of Ecuador is tough but many feel this is what the country needs on the
short-term. If you think you might want to buy something in South America,
Ecuador might be the place to check out.
Forest Magic ~ US$1
Equals 0.89 Euro ~ By Steenie Harvey - Nice article on traveling through
the Black Forest region of Germany. There are some great houses and vineyards
to see as well as waterfalls and spas. The Black Forest always brings all
kinds of images into people's minds and if that is something that you've
always wanted to explore, then a trip this summer to the Black Forest region
might be the trip to take.

Surgery In The Dominican Republic ~ Inexpensive
And Excellent ~ By JoAnn M. Roselli - Latin America is the king of
plastic surgery because its so cheap compared to North America or Europe.
If you want to have some surgery done and don't have a lot of money, then
maybe you should check out what the the prices are for the surgery you
want in the Dominican Republic. Safe and inexpensive might help you find
the figure and self-confidence you have been looking for over the years.
The above article will give you the inside track about what is involved
in having surgery in the DR.

great tales. In this installment he talks about his prized car and what
it's like to explore the Bolivian capitial of La Paz. If you ever thought

And Spain By Train ~ Like
Drinking Café Olé ~ By Maxine Schur - Great article about
traveling through the Costa Brava on Spain's northeastern border near France.
This is an area that became popular with artists in the 1920s because of
its great climate, people and food. If you want to know a little about
the towns that dot this area then the above article has some great resources
for exploring Costa Brava.
The South Of Madagascar ~ Among
The Harsh Beauty Of Isalo ~ By Rabenilaina Harinia Cyrille - The south
of Madagascar is blessed with great beauty and that is nowhere more evident
than in Islao National Park. There are animals and vegetation that can
be only seen in the Park. There are hidden pools and jagged rocks. Old
hotels and brilliant sunsets and walks through the moonlight. Time to go.
Coffee, Tea, Maté ~ An
Exchange Student's Escape ~ By Abby Consadine - The history of Patagonia
is rich with stories and mysteries. The gaucho's who populated the region
in the 19th century were some of the fierces fighters ever, and they lived
off a land that gave little. The massive wave of immigration that brought
thousands to Argentina from Europe at the the end of the 19th century also
changed Patagonia: there were Welsh communities and German communties that
mixed with the local population, but kept most of the traditions of their
homelands. These communties are relatively unchanged up to the present
day. The desert in the south is endless and traveling across this landscape
you feel as if are standing still rather than progressing forward. The
above article gives a little glimpse into how people live in Patagonia
and what they do to pass the time away in one of the most remote regions
known to man.
And Investing In Panama ~ What
To Look Out For ~ By Matthew Atlee - If you are thinking about moving
overseas then Panama might be the right place for you. Panama is a great
place from which to do business with other countries in Latin America:
banking, services and recreation are all things that are highly developed
in Panama. You also have the dollar and a great international airport that
can take you anywhere you want to go in South America or North America.
You should visit Panama just to see what the country has to offer.
