I enjoyed my 18 years working as a veterinarian. It was a stressful, demanding, but very rewarding career helping animals and their humans. The down side was that I had to be at a certain place, at a certain time, on a very regular schedule. Now, I live in Mexico and work on my own time. Over the past year I have lived in two different cities in Mexico...one in Guatemala...and visited every country in Central America. I was able to spend as long as I wanted getting to know the places that I had become interested in over the years.
My fascination with Mexico’s various cultures, wonderful people, and its simplicity began on a two-week vacation. It evolved into so much more. And because I wanted to fully experience everything Mexico has to offer, I ended up selling almost everything I own and finding a way to turn my career skills into a portable income.
