Quick tips today

When you’re in a new locale, remember to learn as much as you can by asking others, exploring, (including making wrong turns) and getting outside your own comfort zone.

1. Take the public transportation: here it’s a blue bus and/or a silver taxi.

2. Ask your new friends what’s their favorite dish soap, floor cleaner, grocery store and movie theater. While I love the exploration of it all, this may cut off some “research” time.


3. Make as many friends as you can and trust they will leave the area one day. As an expat, there are two rules: love all and love quickly.

I adore my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free please), and belly-laughing. My mantra is "HAVE FUN EVERY DAY." I've lived in five US states and two foreign countries. I am grateful, blessed, and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I enjoy sharing my creative and crazy Empty Nester life and inspiring others to have FUN thus staying young.
