I do not really know, but I hear about it all the time. In fact, just this morning at my yoga class I met a couple from Sweden who got here 4 days ago and they already talk about staying.
Sounds familiar, I was quite happy to realise that we are normal……or maybe we are all nuts?
So what is it? What makes all these people want to stay?
Lets start simple….it is the weather. It is absolutely gorgeus here every single day! It has been almost a month and the sun was behind clouds for maybe 2 hours total. Pretty good I think compared to most places in the world. We all know how sun makes us feel and it is scientificly proven to almost eliminate depression:-)
Maybe it is the affordability? The prices here are hard to beat for sure. I mean mostly you pay about a third for everything of what you would spend in USA, Canada or Europe. It is nice to know that your dollar goes much further here so even if you come here on vacation you simply can afford more.
„It is affordable to try out your dreams here” I heard not too long ago. The girl who said it was a graphic designer in NYC and her husband was getting a doctorate in Anthropology. Do you want to know what they do now? She is a co-owner of a children play place/center and her hubby is a DJ at a local hotel.
Yeah, people redefine themselves here. To this moment I thought that we came here by an accident but now I really start to wonder. Since the purpose of that trip was not only „physical moving from one place to another”, but mainly an inside journey I feel like I am getting inspired.
Did I ever mention that I always swore I would never express my thoughts on a blog?!?!?
