no comments

The busy streets around Times Square in the early evening. The streets are full of pedestrians and the iconic New York yellow cabs.

There’s no denying that New York is a great place to splash the cash. With more billionaires than any other city, and high end shops adorning many of its grand boulevards, it may seem difficult to enjoy a budget break in the Big Apple. Thankfully, this couldn’t be further from the truth. New York is… Read More >>

What Is the Cost of Living in Canada?


A pretty skyline of the city of Calgary, Canada. The city looks very modern and surrounded by parks.

With its strong economy, excellent healthcare, and one of the most positive immigration policies, Canada consistently ranks as one of the top places to reside in the modern world.

Why, they asked repeatedly, would anyone relocate to Colombia? After all, most argued it has such a nasty reputation for crime. Again and… Read More >>

What Is the Cost of Living in Mexico?


The colorful streets and shops of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. The street is calm and souvenir shops line the sidewalk.

Reading the Washington Post last year, I laughed aloud when I read the story about Mexico’s immigration problem – namely, American retirees. It seems that roughly one million Americans elect to take a “Residente Temporal” visa each year, one of the driving reasons being the low cost of living in Mexico. I had spent more than… Read More >>

Bewitch Me in Savannah, Georgia


It’s been called the “Most Haunted City in America,” and with a history dating back to 1733, there is no denying there’s something special–something mystical, even–about the little Southern gem that is Savannah, Georgia. It was a long time ago that an uncle invited me there–I was but a young boy back then–and my recent… Read More >>
