One of the great pleasures of my job is the opportunity to interview expats for our “hometown” series on expats living in Mexico.
I’ve interviewed dozens of expats from all over the world during the past several years for our MyInternationalAdventure online magazine, my two books on expat life abroad and now for Expats In Mexico. I love interviewing you because, frankly, expats are the most interesting people I’ve ever met. You generally are well educated, adventurous and not afraid of going beyond your comfort zones to try on a new lifestyle and culture in another country.
So far we have covered Puerto Vallarta, Lake Chapala and Guanajuato and are working on San Miguel de Allende, but our goal for our “hometown” series is to cover every expat community in the country.
The series was created to bring a sense of what living in Mexico is like through the eyes of the expats who call the country their home. We’ve long believed that the best way to discover and learn about a place is by hearing or reading about the day-to-day lives of those who know the area best: those who live there.
This is especially important for those aspiring expats who read our online magazine and live in the United States, Canada, the U.K., England, France and other countries. Most are considering or planning a move to Mexico. They want to know what life is like from expats already living in the country.
Take Jerry Barlar, for example. Jerry recently posted this comment for our “The Expat Life Along Lake Chapala” article featuring Judy Dykstra-Brown. “Great article, my wife and I are visiting for the first time this November and plan to move to the area Sept. 2017. Reading the advice and comments of those that have already moved is very valuable.”
Whether you’re planning a move to Mexico or thinking about moving to a new location within Mexico, we think our “hometown” series will help you discover a wide range of new and interesting places to live.
The success of the series, though, will strongly depend on identifying expats who would like to be interviewed. If you love your “hometown” and would like to be considered for an interview, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let us know a bit about yourself: who you are, where you came from, how long you have lived in Mexico and what you are doing (retired, working in real estate, etc…) We’ll get back to you right away.
