About Us

Welcome to Epicurean Expats!

A Little About Us

We are not 20-somethings trying to hit 30 countries before we are 30, and we are not retirees with a fixed income and time on our hands. We are a working couple who found a way to live our dream in another country before retirement age.

Is it sometimes a struggle? Yes.

Has it been worth it? Most definitely yes.

We met 11 years ago over wine…Tom owned a wine shop, and Tiffany was a wine rep. She walked in, and that was it! We lived the American Dream for awhile… 70 hour work weeks, limited vacation time, and heaps of debt. TIffany had worked in the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas before the big Recession hit, so she knew there was more to life than this constant grind. We both wanted more out of life than this.

About TIffany

A former animal trainer, Tiffany spent 13 years in the animal training field and 10 years in the conference industry.  Her passion for wildlife leads us to more adventurous locations.

About Tom

Tom has worked every position in the wine industry and is a marketing genius. His passion for food has determined many of our travels.

 

Our Story

Lots of people dream of living overseas, but how do you make that dream come true? Every blog, article and interview talks about how “wonderful” life is, but how did they get there? What steps did they have to go through? What obstacles did they encounter?  We all love hearing about the “happily ever after”, but there’s more to the story than rainbows and butterflies. And that’s what we’re going to share with you. The good, the bad, and the ugly, and a few surprises along the way.

There will still be travel, hotels and foodie envy within Epicurean Expats. We want to become your eyes and taste buds on the ground! Our focus will mainly be in the Colonial Highlands of Mexico, specifically the states of Queretaro and Guanajuato, but we’ll also be sharing trips from other parts of Mexico.

And don’t worry. Our trips around the world have not stopped, they just won’t be as frequent this year as we discover what Mexico is really like from a local’s point of view. We feel this will help us better serve you on your travels with observing the “real life” of unique destinations.

    We have been to the highlands of Mexico many times, but this upcoming year would like to explore Queretaro. Is there a local online newsletter where folks post house sits? We did a housesit earlier this year for 2 1\2 weeks in Patzcuaro and loved it. Or alternatively, are there short term stay situations other than air bnb?

    Gracias por su ayuda

      Hi Carole! Yes, there is a housesit website specifically for Mexico called HouseSitMexico. I have seen Queretaro listed twice since I joined this year, but hopefully more will be listed during the dates you need. Ajijic by Lake Chapala seems to be very popular for housesits.
