eBook (PDF), 79 Pages
(2 Ratings)
Price: $13.99
This book is for anyone who has ever thought, even fleetingly, of making a life as a “snowbird”, or even as a full-time resident, in the warm climes of Mexico. Just what is it like to make that dramatic step? What is the reality of the dream? What should I know before I take steps to make it real, or decide it’s just not for me? There are several books that cover the physical mechanics and issues of living in Mexico. The more interesting and critical issues are those of being able to align yourself psychologically with the demands and opportunities of life in Mexico. So this book is about the internal experience of life as a foreign resident in Mexico. It looks at what drives people to come here, what surprises they found, how they cope with and grow from the experience, how reality compares to their expectations, and what they would do differently knowing what they do now. 79 pages, 13 photos

    When you prepare for a long awaited vacation you make a checklist; sunscreen, extra camera sticks, gate passes.. Kirby's new Ebook "Living the Loca Vida" prepares would-be retirees for the final vacation, retirement, by examining the mental checklist, the reasons to begin a brand new way of life in a warm, friendly and affordable country on our southern border. Not just a study in "How To" but a primer on the mental give and take one needs for foreign retirement fulfillment.

    For anyone thinking of making that dream move to Mexico,Baja in particular, this book is a must. Experience shows that if you are going to do are going to do it. Read this book and it could save you a lot of pain and/or provide you with the perspective you need to turn your dream into a joyful fulfilling experience. The author did his research so the content is factual and insightful. I know, I lived there for 9 years.
