Youtube: Reserve: Ex-pats
I just stumble across a series called “Ex-pats” on the Reserve Channel on Youtube, where Jimmy Buffet’s daughter bounces around The Caribbean and elsewhere interviewing expats about their relocations. Readers of this blog might be particularly like this episode about a New Yorker who decided to move to Bocas Del Toro, Panama after buying Mondo Taitu Hostel while on vacation (he’s since moved to Panama City to rehab buildings in Casco Viejo). Also of interest is this one about the couple who opened and run Rumfish in Palcencia, Belize.
Poke around. There are a couple of episodes set in Costa Rica and one about college friends who opened a micro-brewery in The Virgin Islands. It’s reality TV fluff and everyone lives in far better houses than we ever have in those countries, but The Girlfriend and I still happily watch while we long to get back to the sand.
