I was born and raised in Alberta, Canada and have lived in Alberta my entire life (except for three years as a teenager in Saskatchewan). In my late teens and early twenties I worked in the hospitality industry, then in 2000 I got a corporate job on the railroad and have been working on the railroad (all the live-long day...) Finally after 22 years of service on the railroad I handed in my badge, my computer, and my company phone and called it a day in order to pursue my dreams of a happier more fulfilling life.
Both my wife and I enjoy warm temperate climates, and found Costa Rica to be a remarkable country that we quickly fell in love with. We loved it so much that we purchased property and are building our dream home in the tropics.
I hope you follow us on our journey, and perhaps this may inspire you to try something similar. After all, you only live once, so make it what you want it to be!
