Looking for rental property in the U.S.

We are way behind on the blog entries because I have been in the Florida the last couple of weeks looking for investment properties. We are expanding our financial horizons to possibly include rental income from either Indiana or Florida. It has been interesting...
Belize

Belize

May 24 – June 20, 2016. After spending 6 incredible months in Mexico, we crossed into Belize on May 24, 2016 and explored the small country for about a month. Just before reaching the border we were getting ready to leave our camp in the Mexican town of Chetumal...
Back to the underworld

Back to the underworld

Leaving Asheville

Leaving Asheville

  Well, I am quickly approaching the end of my stay here in Asheville. I have to say, this is one cool town with big city amenities and an earthy organic core. Since, I am essentially looking for a business to buy, and will remain an absentee owner, price does...
Yaxha

Yaxha

Close to the famous Tikal ruins in Guatemala lie the lesser-known Mayan site of Yaxhá. Despite being only 30km as the quetzal flies from its famous neighbour, the drive is a little longer. As a result far fewer tourists make the journey to explore these amazing ruins....
