Many people ask us “how do you go about living the island dream?” How do make that life changing move? My business partner Sumayyah has been here 23 years and I (JB) have been here 16 years.We always answer that question with “You gotta just do it” No over analyzing or procrastinating. You just get your affairs in order as quickly as possible. I realized the stress of running a business and a hectic life style back in the States could kill me sooner than latter. I knew I had to make a life change. So I made a 6 month plan and stuck to it by selling everything and taking the leap to Bocas that year. That feeling of unloading everything and going into uncharted waters was exhilarating, also other seasoned expats helped us along the way. There are many ex-pats here that already made the move here and hopefully you can join their ranks. Talk with us about this and maybe we can help save your life , or certainly make it less stressful, simpler and more adventurous.
Here are some island life sayings we have collected, They applied to both men and women. Life is short, Enjoy!
“It’s rare to meet a man who knows what his dream is, it’s rarer still to meet a man who’s living it” A pleasure meeting one!
“We’re all down here cause we ain’t all there”
