Show Notes: About Tim Leffel

Have you ever considered living abroad? Are you looking for a better life for half the price?

There are so many reasons to live abroad, one of the main ones is that it makes the ordinary extraordinary, offers a more immersive travel experience with rich memories, and can often be soooo much cheaper. 

If you’re going to be living anyway, you might as well make it cheaper and better right?

In this podcast episode we discuss the benefits and value of living abroad with expat Tim Leffel.

Tim Leffel is an award winning travel writer and author of The World’s Cheapest Destinations, and the living abroad book A Better Life for Half the Price.

He has spent years living abroad and currently resides in the Mexican highlands.

We discuss:

  • A day in the life of an expat
  • What better kind of life can we expect?
  • What kind of half the price are we looking at
  • Important things to consider before moving abroad
  • Great places to live abroad
  • Logistics that can make or break your choice like visas, and making money
  • How to tell if you are cut out of this kind of life (it ain’t easy)
