We are a couple of Americans who have decided to retire to Panama, specifically David in Chiriqui Province. I have made this blog to document our experiences so we can remember everything, keep friends and family updated, and maybe it will help someone else doing the same thing or considering such a move.
I’m Kris, retired RN. I’m married to Joel, musician and construction guy, the guy who could remodel and fix pretty much anything in a house. Before this, we lived in Sarasota, Florida. We thought about making this move for a few years, visited three times and loved what we saw, and decided to go for it! I arrived in October 2012, and Joel followed in November.
Together, we are making a new home in our new country. Follow our blog and I’ll take you with us on our adventures!
