Dear Overseas Opportunity Letter Reader,

Let's take a step back this morning and regroup.


Global Property Investing

Coconut Profits

June 3, 2011, Fortaleza, Brazil: Fortaleza, Brazil, can be an ideal place for an investment in productive, agricultural land.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

I've written in the past about my general concerns related to the Brazil real estate investment market. Not because I don't think there's money to be made here, but because it's a difficult market to navigate. You've got language issues, currency issues, and issues to do with moving money in and out. Bottom line, this market is more complicated than the typical small investor is prepared for. The costs of investing here, in terms of both time and money, can easily eat up any profits you might otherwise realize.


Travel In Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova

A Thousand Years Of Culture

June 2, 2011, Transylvania, Romania: Travel in Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, and Ukraine is an opportunity to discover a thousand years of culture that is largely a mystery to the Western world.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"My friend Ivan and I were traveling in Transylvania, Romania," writes Intrepid Correspondent Paul Terhorst, picking up where he left off yesterday.

"We met many people who spoke English, especially in restaurants and hotels.


Travel In Suceova, Romania

Historic, Romantic, Pretty, And Cheap

June 1, 2011, Suceava, Romania: Suceova, Romania, is an historic, romantic, pretty, and cheap travel and retirement haven.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"My friend Ivan and I crossed the border from Ukraine into Suceava, Romania," writes Intrepid Correspondent Paul Terhorst, continuing his East European adventures.


Travel In Lviv, Ukraine

The World's Best Travel Base

May 31, 2011, Western Ukraine: Western Ukraine could be the world’s best travel base.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"My friend Ivan and I were on a bus in Ukraine," writes Intrepid Correspondent Paul Terhorst, "Ivan in front. I was sitting a few seats back, and found myself in the middle of an emotional drama. An elderly couple boarded; the woman sat next to me.

"The man--call him the husband--carefully placed her bags where she could get them, made sure she was comfortable. But she stared straight ahead all the time, without any sign of affection, without even a sign of recognition. Still, the husband stayed on, looking at her, waiting for a response, any response.

Primarily, I appreciated the sincere and honest approach of the organizers and all the presenters, as well as the obvious desire to give participants complete, accurate, timely, and appropriate information and to answer questions thoroughly."

"Thank you for all your hard work. You have made a lot of people dream and a lot of dreams come true. I enjoy all the e-mails from all your staff living all over the world. I am always telling people about you and how you started your publications years ago. In fact, I just today told my banker about how honest and smart you are, letting us know where to go. Wish I had listened to you more years ago..."
