Snowbird Soliloquy

5 years ago

The subtitle blog is The Best of Both World on Both Sides of the Border and Beyond! The blog focus is on reflections and recommendations for retired boomers who are interested in improving the quality of their retirement years by exploring short term residency in Mexico and other Spanish speaking countries. I've spent three winters in Mexico, two in Ajijic, Jalisco in the Lake Chapala area, one in San Miguel DE Allende and am cutrently IN San Miquel de Allende until the end of April. Don't like winter? Why suffer in silence waiting for spring when so many countries welcome North American jubilada/jubilados? You, too can be living the dream for a whole lot less than you can imagine!
