About Me
I am a 43 year old expat from Toronto who moved to Panama to escape the rat race and to seek a new lifestyle and a lower cost of living.

My husband and I flew our Piper Cherokee 6 to Panama five years ago with our two cats and belongings. Five years later, we are still very much enjoying our new adopted country.

I am a Real Estate advisor for Inside Panama Real Estate and we own a B&B on Contadora in the Pearl Islands called the Contadora Hibiscus House.

We have experienced challenges and find that everyday is a learning experience but know we would not trade a day in Panama for a day back in the corporate race in Toronto.
