Everyone Loves a Bargain
- excerpt from The
Adventurer's Guide to Destination Choices
and Akaisha Kaderli
I’m a world
traveler and I’m here to help. Grown adults from the
U.S. and Canada can find themselves shaking in their
boots, confused, frustrated, or even angry when it
comes to bargaining for goods in foreign countries.
It’s safe to say that most Anglos find it
distasteful, yet bargaining is inherent in many
cultures around the world. Native peoples have
developed this communication skill for centuries,
exchanging live chickens for bags of rice, avocadoes
or woven cloth.
VIDEO - Back
on the Beach at Chacala, Mexico
mesmerizing, Chacala Beach calls over and over.
Watch a paddle boarder, see the yacht harbor where
the fishermen dock their boats. Sailors come and go
in this peace-filled harbor, listen to the waves.
The Plain of Jars,
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli
Although the cool breeze was
a welcome change from hot, dusty Vientiane,
the approaching storm felt ominous. Our
first stop was inside to the officials where
we waited for our papers to be stamped, and
for our luggage to arrive from the plane.
Meanwhile, the local touts swarmed all over
us to get travel tour business for the
Is It Work or Is It Passion?
taking a break from the sun and surf,
relaxing in my hotel room in a tiny beach
town on Mexico’s rugged Pacific Coast, my
cell phone rang. ‘Howdy, Beautiful!’ my
friend of four decades shouted from snow
country, thousands of miles away. "Been watchin’ your website for years and I read
all your stories. Love ‘em. But I thought
you were retired!"
Mexican High Sierra
Billy and Akaisha
exciting colonial towns are to the north of
Guadalajara so we took ten days to visit
them. Our trip through the High Sierra in
Central Mexico brought us through 4 Mexican
States: Jalisco, Zacatecas, Aguas Caliente
and Guanajuato. Leaving the Guadalajara bus
terminal this time on a 1st class Ejectivo
Bus with movies, comfortable reclining seats
and refreshments made for a hassle-free
journey to our first stop, Zacatacas.
Touring a Macadamia Nut Ranch
We are spending time in an
enchanting colonial city of the old Spanish
empire, a place called Antigua, Guatemala.
From here there are several small mountain
towns of interest, easily accessible by bus.
Locals kept telling us of an amazing rancho
where macadamia nuts are grown, employing
many of the families in the area. We had
never seen a 'nut farm' before, and decided
to take a look.
Paul and Vicki Terhorst
We met up again with Paul and
Vicki Terhorst in the northern city of
Chiang Mai, Thailand on our latest trip to
Asia, and there was lots of catching up to
do. The world has changed, and we have all
added a few years onto our count, bringing
in different concerns so we asked them if
they would mind doing an update interview.
Fantastically, they said yes.
We’re Still Here! An Evolutionary Tale
and Akaisha Kaderli
We did not have our
retirement life scripted to purchase a house
in a community, buy the last car we’d ever
possess, and settle down. We let our
retirement lifestyle unfold, blossom and
develop into what it is now. Our style of
20+ years of financial independence was
never planned. It evolved on its own.
We met Kalli and Jacob in
Panajachel, Guatemala as they were passing
their time in a tiny town called Pasaj Cap
on the caldera's edge of Lake Atitlan.
Impressed with this young couple's travel
resume and joie de vivre, we asked that they
tell our readers about their location
independent living style.
