About Us

After 4 years of expat life, we’ve moved back to the U.S. We learned a lot, made wonderful friends, lived a dream, and healed just a bit after certain physical issues. As important as it was to depart, for urgent family reasons, we will always miss Medellin Colombia, and the amazing people we met there. As far as we can tell Colombia has the most generous, kindest, most courteous, and certainly the most accepting people on the planet. Our love and admiration for all of them. Fuerte abrazos!

Back in the USA, we’re catching up, renewing old commitments, getting used to US prices—yikes!—and settling into our Iowa City home. Thanks for reading our posts, and comments are always welcome.

    Hello and great blog! With just a few years to an early retirement, my wife and I are planning to trip to Boquete for August. I was wondering if you had any recommendations on a hotel in Boquete? We’re not looking for spa fancy but would enjoy clean, comfortable and close to town.

    Best wishes,
    Chuck and Bina

      Chuck/Bina: Thanks for checking in with our blog, nice to have you. We’re admittedly short timers in Boquete at this point, exploring and planning and finding our way around. We leave here May 7th, back to Columbus, liquidate everything and hopefully back in beautiful Boquete in September. As for places to stay, I’d highly recommend a little AirBnB place we used called Casa Los Naranjos. Here’s a link: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/791387?s=VRCNKwBk. Katarina and Pedro are terrific hosts, the house is very warm and welcoming and the breakfasts are great. If you want a real hotel, the Ladera is pretty nice, close to town and clean, though I don’t know prices there. The Montana is also close to town, again no idea of price. Depends on when you’ll be here, I suppose, though August is low season, so… Good luck. Thanks again for reading the blog. There’s more coming. Best. BE
