Why move to Mexico? Well, if you were sitting here looking out my window, you wouldn’t even ask that question!
But, since you’re not, I’ll explain …
Besides the amazing views (the photo above is me sunbathing in our backyard), we chose Mexico for a lot of reasons. Actually, M. (my hubby), chose Mexico before we even met. And I, thankfully, benefited from his brilliant choice!
Top 5 reasons we moved here:
5. To give our kids an overseas experience (and have our own, too!)
4. To get out of the “Rat Race” (which leads to #3)
3. To be able to live off less money than we earn (which leads to #2)
2. To buy a sailboat and learn how to sail (which leads to #1)
1. To travel and recreate our lives!
When M. and I met, he told me about his dream (well, re-dream, really) to move to the west coast of mainland Mexico and buy a sailboat, and to eventually travel throughout the world. I’d never talked to anyone about a cruising lifestyle, so these were all new ideas to me. I told him it sounded fun and I starting asking questions. One thing led to another, and four months later we were talking about marriage and re-dreaming together. (Both of us had gone through divorces.)
Fast forward a couple years and peek through our window. You’ll see two very happy people that are enjoying a simpler lifestyle. We are nearly debt free and will own a 39′ Irwin Citation sailboat in one month (which means future blogs about our adventures).
Most of all, we have made wonderful friends and have had amazing experiences together – isn’t that what life is about?!
