Hello world!

Life Of A Gringo Expat Living In El Salvador Blog


About Hugh Talley — Retired  

 Hello, (Hola,) My name is Hugh, I am 68 years old and have spent a great part of my life traveling the world. I spent 14 years in the United States Army which gave me the opportunity to visit and live in many countries. I have worked most of my life in logistics and fleet management. I retired in October of 2011.

My wife, Elizabeth is from El Salvador, we retired and moved here in November of 2011. We built our home and live near Cara Sucia.

I came for my first visit to El Salvador in March of 2004 and fell in love with the country right away. Elizabeth and I would visit the country 2-3 times a year and I would always feel peaceful, calm and revitalized from the visit. We love what the country has to offer, the wonderful people, the beaches, the mountains, the beautiful sites and the history to name a few.

After we retired in October, we relocated here in November of 2011 to start our new life. I think that  El Salvador has a lot of potential and opportunity that are over looked by many people.

Our Blog discusses the life, sites, issues and opportunity in El Salvador as we see them. I hope you will join us on the journey of our life in El Salvador.

  1. Hola!
    Since I just got our new blog linked to Expat Exchange I thought I’d check out some of the other blogs listed. I enjoyed reading yours on El Salvador and, you’re right, most people from the US think of the civil war, the mass of illegal immigrants coming to the US, the gangs and drugs. Hopefully, your blog will help change that perception for some people (although expats and travelers in general definitely seem to be more open-minded anyway!).
    Good luck to you and your wife in your new life-I’ll check back in to follow your adventure.
    Hasta Luego, Anita
    P.S. You might want to check your link with Expat Exchange – I couldn’t get it to work until I noticed that the colon sign was missing after http. You deserve more readers!
