The Story:

Living in the USA, the media bombards you with stories telling you that you should accept immigrants, or that you should be afraid of immigrants stealing your welfare benefits. When trapped in a limited media FOX/CNN right/left propaganda paradigm, it may be difficult to overlook the fact that more and more people are deciding to leave the USA and never come back. Some of them are looking for the principles of liberty and opportunity that made America great. Some of them are increasingly concerned about political risk. And some of them just want an opportunity to break their daily routine, leave the ordinary life behind, and find what mysteries the world has to present to them.

Naturally, some of these adventurers have decided to spend some time in Magical Mexico. Kurt’s neighbour Taylor Alan is one of these gringos that decided to explore the world, if only by accident. On a month-long family trip to France, she met a charming local and decided not to leave.

In this episode, we interview Ms. Alan and find out how she managed to survive France barely speaking the language, her easy-going attitude, and how she ended up in Mexico.

Join us on another exciting, world-shattering adventure on… The Paradise Paradox!
