One couple's celebration of risking it all for the dream of living a happier life.

In this humorous and witty account, Nadine Pisani shares what it is like to follow her dream of quitting her job and carving a new life under the sunny skies of Costa Rica. Along the way, she finds reliable utilities are not that reliable, quirky neighbors are unavoidable, and tackling red tape takes the strength of a linebacker.

Much like Frances Mayes in Tuscany and Peter Mayle in Provence, it's never easy moving to a foreign country. Whether dealing with Dolores the Dog Lady, an uninvited neighbor who pees on the front lawn to get closer to nature, or Jim the Jehovah witness with fourteen aliases and two passports, Costa Rica introduces the reader to a medley of characters and situations. It turns out becoming a Central American diva is harder than it looks.

But even with its challenges, you'll learn why Costa Rica is ranked as one of the happiest places on earth—and you too may want to taste the Pura Vida lifestyle.

Editorial Reviews

Tony Ortez
"One point Nadine learns from her experience is that we are all allowed to choose how we ingest what life deals us and I thank her for reminding me. And her humor! If she ever wants to look for a second occupation, she might want to consider 'stand-up comic'" Tony Ortez, Howler Magazine
Natalie Sisson
"They knew there was more to life than simply earning money to spend it on material things." Natalie Sisson, SuitcaseEntrepreneur.com
