I'm a writer and make a living in marketing and sales of international real estate, tourism and investments. I write about living internationally, which I have since 2006, as well as about income and lifestyle investments in real estate and other real assets. Sounds boring, but I love the people I meet and the flexibility it gives me to live wherever I want. I frequently am in transition, and often my plans aren't firm until the last minute -- but they always work out for the best. This year I've lived in Mendoza, Argentina and Coronado, Panama, traveled in Colombia and expect to visit San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and Sonoma County, California before returning to Mendoza.
