We’re in Transit. Well by the time that you read this we might be posting on our new blog and we are inviting you to join us over there. Where is there? http://OurLifeInMexico.com is the new place for information about living in Mexico. The word “Retirement” does not really fit our lifestyle here in Mexico. We though it would when we headed this way a while back but soon found that there is so much to do, see and experience that retirement is not really the best description for our blog post.
Those of you that have visited this sight in the past are aware that there were over 200 blog posts about retirement life, as well as Mexican food and recipes. Well that all got wiped out when my host and I were making some changes. They are lost in space. Because we must start from scratch, we made the name change to better fit our lifestyle.
There are those that retire to Mexico, buy a house or condo and settle into a more relaxed lifestyle, perhaps over looking the ocean or even in many other areas of Mexico, The idea of an afternoon or evening spent with friends sipping a cocktail or two before or after dinner is a perfect retirement plan..
We have other friends that live here in Puerto Vallarta and run their businesses in the United States and Canada. They have set it up in such a way that they can pretty well manage the business via smart phone with only a trip up north every few months..Not retired yet but still enjoying a life on the beach a few days a week.
As for us, I am a retired executive chef and my wife is in healthcare. However here in Mexico, I tend to grill lunch or dinnr for friends where the focus is on the food and the drinks are in second place although not forgotten. My wife helps people care for their animals, makes sure there is food on the table for a few families we can help and works in our ‘Garden” around our property.
Our “garden” has an area for growing our own herbs, some vegetables and of course peppers. When we got here the property already had two large mango trees, 1 coconut tree, 1 plum tree and 12 banana trees. We have added 1 guava tree, about 9 papaya trees, 2 lime trees, 2 avocado trees, 1 starfruit tree, 5 coffee plants, and maybe a couple more. I might have lost track because it seems that my wife is always telling me to grab a shovel because we are going to plant something,
So as you can see, life in Mexico, even retirement life in Mexico can mean something different to each person.
