Relocating from the U.S. to Ecuador. This will chronicle our adventures (and misadventures) as we learn to live in a foreign country. "The worst day in Ecuador is better than the best day at work."
We repacked our bags, simplified our life, and headed for Cuenca, Ecuador. This is our story!
Moving abroad is not an easy decision or process. And, truly, becoming an expat is not for everyone. I hope you find the experiences and observations I share of our life in Ecuador to be helpful, informative and entertaining!
What is so great about Cuenca Ecuador? How about the friendly people, the mild weather, the cost of living, the wholesome food, the love of family, the freedom to live as you please, the splendid nature, the Andes mountains, the beautiful coasts…
My mission in publishing this blog is first to provide a living history of my visit to Cuenca, and to provide myself and the reader with a journal account delineating my reasons for why I have chosen to settle in Cuenca. Second, the posts are my way of staying in contact with family and friends,and to provide them with an understanding of a country and culture that most North Americans have little knowledge and awareness. Third, the blog is open to one and all who wish to compare and contrast the experiences of expat bloggers living in Cuenca, so that you can determine whether or not from your perspective Cuenca is an appropriate move for you. Fourth, my blog provides another example of how expats view and interpret life in Cuenca. Ecuadorians and Cuencanos who may read this blog are especially invited to post comments that may enhance all expats understanding and appreciation of Cuneca and its people, or to correct any misinterpretations in my assumptions and perceptions of Cuencano culture. Finally, I hope I can convey the feeling of love and appreciation that grows within me each passing day for this heavenly city
This is all about my transition from an American lifestyle and culture to my newest adventure, life in Cuenca, Ecuador. I'll be recapping some of my day-to-day experiences (and mishaps) to highlight what it's like to live here.

This is our journey to retirement in Ecuador. As "expats" we are learning as we go by reading other blogs of those who have made the journey before us. Enjoy the ride and experience this new adventure as we travel along step by step (and hopefully you'll decide to join us!).
