Expat in Mexico

Living as an expat in any place of the world is an enhancing experience and an exiting adventure as Frances Hodgson, a famous british writer, says: “If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden”.

Is very common to run into expats here in Mexico, either visiting, in business trips or even living here thanks to their occupation, likewise we see a lot of European, American, Canadian people who have chosen Mexico as their retirement accommodation.

No doubt about, Mexico is a country that offers every little thing to make your living experience cosier, in such way that thousands of people who only come to visit, decide to stay permanently.

 

Mexicans are warmhearted people who always have their “doors open” for anyone, they welcome expats in a very friendly way with their everyday phrase “mi casa es su casa” which means “my house is your house”. They will easily open the doors of their house for new people, who quickly become friends and make them feel at home.

 

Therefore, whatever is the reason for visiting Mexico, it will doubtlessly become one of your favorite destinations, with its multicultural and colorful sites, which extend an invitation to always come back and make their proverbs your own, to which one of the most popular is: ¡Como México no hay dos! (There are not two as Mexico!!).

Introducing little Mepot to the world.

Mepot is a very unique and happy alien, this is why he is friends with every little alien in his little unique planet; however, one day his curiosity took him to another stage, and he began thinking of the possibility to go beyond every place he already knew, to explore new planets, get to know them and make new friends as well. Although he already had everything he needed for his new adventure he still had some doubts, for instance; where would he arrive? What would he do there? And whom to go to in case he needed anything? In other words, being far away from home would make him feel not only insecure but also afraid. 

Thinking about all this, was almost enough for him to give up on all the plans he had already made to explore new planets. He thought it would be very risky and wouldn´t obtain any benefits, plus he wasn´t sure about what planet to visit. When he was about to drop the idea for good, he found a friend who had visited Earth, so they talked about all kind of things he could find over there and the new adventures his friend had been through. This chat really helped Mepot to reconsider everything he had planned and make the decision to begin with his new voyage.

 

The journey was not easy at all, Mepot was not used to traveling abroad for such a long time and when he landed in Earth he became afraid again, but when he brought to mind his friend´s advice, his fears vanished and he allowed himself to get a kick out of his new adventure.

 

Nowadays Mepot has voyaged around the world to many countries such as, France, Brazil, Canada and currently he is in Mexico, where his main priority is to make the most out of each opportunity he has to get to know the country he is in.

 

Who would have thought that Mepot has been in Earth now for more than three years? And just as he overcame all his fears, he was able to make from this journey an unforgettable adventure. Therefore he has given himself the task to invite all his little friends to live the same awesome and great experience he has lived, but unlikely before, now that he knows how Earth functions, he will share with them all the info they need so they don´t have to go through everything he had to go through, and they just feast upon their stay in every country they visit.
