Lake Chapala, Jalisco — After more than a year of work and research, the editor of the Best Places In The World To Retire resource guide is offering his resulting ebook for free.

Our Year on the Road & Living in Mexico– Adventures, Challenges, Triumphs, Lessons Learned provides the firsthand accounts of Chuck Bolotin and his wife Jet Metier after they sold, gave away, or put into storage 90 percent of their possessions and packed the rest, along with two dogs, into a big white van, leaving their comfortable house in Arizona, to travel through Mexico.

“In this one book, you can experience all the stories and lessons learned by Chuck and Jet while on the road and living in Mexico, from the border at Baja, to the border with Belize, all from the perspective of complete newbies, which is the perspective of most of the visitors to our site,” said Alan Alexander, chairman of the Best Places Advisory Board.

Jonathan Look, founder of the very popular website Life Part 2, who in 2011 sold everything he owned, took early retirement and began traveling the world, was also enthusiastic about the 243-page PDF book.

“Chuck Bolotin has a unique way of combining interesting information, funny stories and practical tips for traveling in a light and readable way,” said Look. “His collection of stories on the joys and travails of traveling in Mexico reflects not on his expertise (because he intentionally had very little before starting his travels), but rather on the proper attitude for thriving while exploring our marvelous neighbor to the south.  This is a great book for people new to international travel and life in any country, just like its author was new to it when the book starts.”

“In this book, Chuck Bolotin and Jet Metier undertake a great adventure that most only dream about, ‘pulling the rope’ so to speak, throwing ‘good sense’ and ‘caution’ to the wind,” said Mike Cobb, chairman and CEO of ECI Development and trailblazing legend in the living-abroad field.

Alfonso Galindo, a U.S. expat living and doing business in Mexico, serial entrepreneur and now CEO of North America Trust Bank, said simply: “With its depictions of entertaining people, firsthand stories and useful information, if you’re considering traveling or living in Mexico, this book is a ‘must read.’ ”
