Coming Of Age In The Caribbean

My first visit to the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize, I climbed down the stairs of the eight-seater airplane, grabbed my bag from nearby on the runway where it'd been placed by the pilot who doubled as the landing crew, and carried it with me across the dirt road to the hotel where I had a reservation.

A Pastoral Land Where Time Stands Still

May 16, 2011, Western Ukraine: Western Ukraine, formerly the breadbasket of the Soviet Union, is a pastoral land of farms and villages that seem lost in the 19th century.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"My friend Ivan and I were on a bus rolling through the wheat fields of western Ukraine.

Condo Hotel Investment

Turn-Key, Hassle-Free, Double-Digit Yields In A Proven And Fast-Expanding Market

May 13, 2011, Panama City, Panama:

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

I was reminded of the simplicity of investing in a condo-hotel unit during my most recent trip to Medellin, Colombia, where I toured such a unit in a completed hotel. This unit is currently available directly from the developer, as the original buyer couldn't complete the sale. The hotel is already up and running, making this particular property especially attractive. The developer wants to move it quickly, of course...and the buyer would be investing in a very turn-key asset. My Marketwatch members will hear more about this apartment and other current rental investment opportunities in Medellin next week.
