With Platinum Circle to Help, You Could Find Yourself Living Better than Ever Overseas… Just Like these Happy Expats…
"The first weekend I was here there was a party for the opening of the newly restored Casa Museo Remigio Crespo Toral, the historic house which once belonged to the Ecuadorian poet, Remigio Crespo Toral. There were beautiful young Cuencana women modeling period clothing for the opening reception, the museum was jam-packed with people, a lot of them older wealthy Cuencanos. There was a classical music concert in the auditorium, and a jazz band playing in the café in back... I knew straight away that this was the city for me."

"I landed in Ambergris Caye the first time I came to Belize. I fell in love with it minutes after I stepped off the 'puddle-jumper' flight in San Pedro (the only town on the island). This island would be the popular kid in school: It's the life of the party, it's non-stop fun, and yet it still holds on to a bit of bohemian character. Boats are everywhere in town and on the blue Kool-Aid colored water, you can see the waves crashing over the reef not far from shore. Downtown San Pedro's vibe is colorful, vibrant, and full of life. Thatch-roof bars line the shore and even extend over the water. Dive shops, docks, and boats line the downtown area, where rows of tables are set up by people selling everything from jewelry to wood carvings. You'll hear live music at the bars and restaurants, and the main mode of transport on the island is the humble golf cart."
—Expat Laura D. in Belize
"I like going to the beachside places, and I'm just a few minutes' walk from one. I also enjoy playing golf now and again...The weather was a factor in my moving here, but it was the beaches that attracted me. In Da Nang, even when it's raining, it's still a mild day. Now, it only feels cold if I'm on the motorbike. I've never felt that I needed to put in a heater. We tend to go to local Vietnamese restaurants. We both like banh xeo (a fried rice-flour crepe filled with bean sprouts and shrimp, squid, or pork). If there's a new restaurant, we like to go try it out—and we're surrounded by steak and seafood."
—Expat Tony H. in Vietnam
"When we left the U.S., we both had some health issues. The year before I left, I developed high blood pressure. Four months after arriving here, though, my BP was normal. No meds, no docs, no expenses. It was all due to having no stress and a much better diet. That's the Italian lifestyle in a nutshell. Most of what we eat here in Rieti comes from this valley and is not processed or altered in any way. We eat fresh, we eat healthily, and we can tell the difference. We feel a lot better. Our budget for food is $570 a month, and almost all of it is fresh and local We were charmed, especially by southern Italy, which is Old-World Italy—still very, very Italian… I still can't get over how much less we spend here. A beautiful cup of coffee is less than a dollar. You can go out for a multi-course meal for $35. For health care, we pay $236 a year to cover everything… Most people have this open heartedness that's hard to describe. It's as if they feel more like smiling and thinking of the good things in life and enjoying their lives than dwelling on grievances. Happiness is more important here."
