About Me


new picHey There!

Living in David Panama for almost 4 years. It took almost a year to feel really settled in. Now I know the ropes and hope this blog will help you do the same.

I feel blessed to have this adventure and love to share it with you. As a single gal here, I have forged alone in the last 2 years! I have learned many new things and met many new wonderful Panama friends. As a single gal going it alone now I still don’t regret the move here.

This country, its people, history and culture continue to excite and fascinate me. I wake up each morning feeling blessed to be in such a wonderful place.

If I can inspire you to think outside the box of traditional retirement, I think you will find a life full of great possibilities.

Doing what your heart tells you is the most rewarding experience. Be open to change and it will change you for the better!

    • Sorry about that. Chiriqui is definitely quieter than PC. In many ways, David is still a small town. We are growing by leaps and bounds though. New construction is everywhere from commercial to residential. We are booming. If you get a chance to come, spend at least a week. There is lots to see and do.

    • For some yes, for others no. I know that does not answer your question. I live in David and never use the AC units I have in my home. Many expats here do the same. We have gotten used to the heat. It gets really hot around 3-4 then because the sun goes down at 6:30 or so, it starts cooling off again. For others who live in Boquete and have gotten used to the “cold”, yes David seems warm. I also think it depends on where you are from. Personally I can’t live in Boquete, it is way too damp, windy like crazy and cold. But some like it there also. I always recommend that you stay in a place a year to experience the 12 months of the place before making a committment.
