International Mel is your average everyday Midwestern girl. For the last 15 years I've lived in Southern California and worked in Corporate America full time. In 2001, I traveled to Africa and my life changed forever. I caught the travel bug. It has taken many years to work up the courage (and save enough money) to make the decision to travel full time, but I am on the verge of taking the next step in this adventure. This blog will record my transition from the safety and security of a steady paycheck to the wild world of a full-time traveler. I hope InternationalMel.com will provide travel inspiration and support for others with the bug, particularly solo female travelers, like me!
Created to help expats living in Nicaragua, especially Granada area and for those thinking of moving here. Covers every aspect of expat life in Nicaragua including diaries from the day we moved here. Diaries are in written format but recently added a blog.
We moved Nicaragua to create a business that gives back to the world. In a big way. We have calculated the risk in moving to Nicaragua and it is the best opportunity we have to start a business while being able to the live the life we want right now. They say an entrepreneur is a calculated risk taker and that’s exactly what we are. After months of analysis and crunching the numbers, we found that not only can we comfortably afford to live abroad but we can also dedicate 100% of our time there to our business due to the low cost of living and currency exchange. While evaluating our decision we realized that we could not live the life we wanted to while starting our own business right now, at age 25, here in America. So, we have taken our vision, along with our knowledge and experience from America and are using it all to create our own business and life in Nicaragua. We hope to inspire you as you follow us, to show you that it is possible to take the leap. But if nothing else we hope to just entertain you and give you a unique perspective into the life of two 25 year olds discovering the world while making a better life for those around them. We have no path to follow but our own. To learn through action and our own experiences of dedicating our lives to starting something much bigger than us. So, here we go, join us as we begin our new life out of the box.
