Barry, can you explain how most (adv.) expats do banking? What banks do the people of Cabrera use? Are ATM’s close by? Thanks for the videos, they have been very helpful!

Great videos. Just listened to your interview on The Borderless Network and followed a link to your site. My wife and I are seriously looking at expating within the next year(we’re in Edmonton). I watched your introductory video on the Home page but there was only a blank spot to the left of the Signup Here button and this was the only other place I could find on the site to communicate with you, other than signing up for a tour. Can I sign up from here or can you provide us with a link for signing up? Sorry to go round to the back door to communicate:-).

Hello Robert, Always nic to meet another person from Edmonton. Funny thing it was a little dive shop on the South Side of Edmonton where things initially too off. If memory serves me right it was on White Ave. but thatwas so long ago and a lot of miles have passed since then. I would really encourage you to go back into the archived articles and watch sveral of our YouTubes. From there I can connect you to several folks who you could gather information from. Our deal is if we help you the you help others. Sign up by going back to the site and on the top tool bar click on join or contact us. Hope this helps and thanks for reaching out.

Thanks for replying so quickly Barry. Went back and checked the join and contact us both and found only some welcoming text but no entry forms, just the video at the top of all these pages. Under the video, as it plays, there is a red arrow pointing to the left to what probably should be some sort of form to subscribe or join but in my case is just a blank,white space. If I am the first person to report this problem to you, don’t sweat it. I swear I was put on this earth to act as a training aid for anyone trying to serve people on the net :-). I’m at a loss as how to progress from here. At least the videos work and I expect that we would be able to sign up for a tour when the time comes.

No problem just email me at soon as I have a moment I will reach out.
