Over the last few months I’ve endeavored to share the goals, experiences, insights and challenges for potential Boot-Strap Expats. We covered all kinds of topics; from Expat motivations, planning, liquidating assets, my K9 Masters, essential gear, original art and Real Food for Real Life. But what do you want more of as we move forward with this adventure? Let me know in the comments or send me an email directly.
