All of my blog posts lead off with a quote that is relevant to the subject of the post. I also frequently post quotes on my Facebook group page: Long Term Traveling and Living Abroad Over the Age of 50. This page of quotes is from my blog and Facebook group page mostly. However, I have added a few extra of my favorite travel-related quotes.

As part of my research for my blogs and seminars over the past 15 years, I have talked to over 300 American and Canadian expats in Mexico, Central America (particularly Costa Rica), Europe (mainly Italy), and Thailand. These expats generally are happy they made the move but found both the challenges and the benefits of living abroad vastly different than expected.
