    Oh, my goodness, it couldn’t have gotten any worse but you guys got through it like troopers. You almost just have to laugh during the ordeal and just go with the flow. How wonderful that you found some very helpful people to kindly offer assistance. I hope you didn’t have perishables in your grocery bags. Thank you, for coming back to post!

      Absolutely! I often tell my kids that sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying… :) We hadn’t bought any perishables at that point because we didn’t even have a fridge yet! :)

    Wow, I hear our story in yours! I also can recall some of struggles of our first purchase in PR back in 2009. We go back every year to vacation but also to correct some of the shoddy work done during the process of constructing our home (plumbing /electrical). It had not only happened to us but to all of our neighbors who bought homes in the new development. It was very difficult to oversee construction while still residing in the states. We’ve finally smoothed out all the kinks to the inside of the house and as of this month begun working on the outside of the home, preparing it not only for us humans but also for our two dogs and three parrots. Relocating the parrots was another obstacle we had to overcome but this too has been resolved. I’ll really be able to exhale once we arrive on the island with birds in hand. Although the first home buying process was a nightmare, we bought a second time, a solar, without any problems. If we had to do it all over again we would because nothing compares to living on the island. I’ve been lucky enough to be employed with the Department of State Hospitals allowing me to take a six week vacation in PR but unfortunately my husband has not been able to do so working for the private sector. Our retirement date is getting close so just one more vacation and then the following flight to PR will be the final one. We can’t wait!

      I agree that PR is well worth any hassles we may encounter. How exciting that your retirement date is fast approaching!
