Our Costa Rica Home Building Journey: My Article Featured in International Living Magazine!


I hope you are healthy, feeling content, living in the moment, and searching

for an adventure. 👀 

James and I have been on quite the adventure of transitioning to a new life living abroad in Costa Rica. The link is an article from the July 2024 issue of International Living Magazine about finding property and building our home in Potrero, Surfside, Santa Cruz, Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

If you're considering a move abroad or simply curious about what it takes to build outside North America, this article offers valuable insights, lessons learned, and tips for navigating the process.

It was my privilege to write again for International Living Magazine, and we hope our experience can be helpful if you're looking into creating a new life in a new location abroad.

You can read the full article here.

Remember, freelancing is an excellent way to earn money by working where and when you want. If you are ready to plan your transition to what's next, contact me if you want to chat about your goals and aspirations going forward.

Jeanne: I so enjoyed reading about your and James' experience in finding Casa Camote and the build of your Casa Wabi Sabi (and reno of Casita Wabi Sabi)! This information is invaluable as we continue to debate "buy existing" or "build" upon our move to CR. Your place looks like a little slice of heaven!
