Florida Expats Learn What FAMILY Really Means When They Move To Cabrera Dominican Republic

T Le Mont and Karen

T Le Mont and Karen Are Glad They Made The Move

If you grew up in the United States or Canada and can still remember what it was like years ago when you actually knew your neighbors and when it was safe to let your kids play on their own… then you may appreciate what T Le Mont and Karen have to say about what they discovered down in Cabrera Dominican Republic.

In this series of video interviews the T Le Mont family share their experience in moving to a strange country where they did not speak the language or understand the customs.  When you think about it, there are so many things that can go wrong when you pick up your family and head off into a strange land, yet what the T Le Mont family actually discovered was a new family where people look after each other and where you care about your neighbors and they care about you.  You will hear about their experience with a healthcare emergency in a foreign land and challenges in the customs process.  But you will also hear loud and clear that having a ready made family to get you through the challenges is the key to a smooth and pleasant move.

T Le Mont Is A Funny Guy

T Le Mont Is A Funny Guy – Welcome to the Family

It is kind of funny when you hear T Le Mont and Karen talking about the role that these little DR Escapes YouTube videos had in making the transition to life in Cabrera just a little bit easier.  They have said that they already felt like they knew people and had long lost friends as soon as they came to town.  That is one of the reasons we do these interviews with other expats.  We would like for you to meet them and quickly feel like you are part of the growing family of like-minded people that are discovering this little piece of tropical paradise in Cabrera.

In this video, T Le Mont and Karen tell us what family means to them and how their new Cabrera family is making their transition smoother and more pleasant.

Way to go T LeMont and Karen,good insight into what to expect when you make that move in your life. When i first came here i did not understand that the people were just being nice, like TJ and Joshua i thought they were after something, let me be clear here nothing is perfect and you get good and bad everywhere.Here in Cabrera and the city of Nagua i have developed wonderful friendships with the locals and even in Nagua which has a population of around 100000 including the surrounding villages of the countryside there is a community feeling.Jumping from one house to the next to see your neighbor for a coffee or a drink.Awesome feeling to have.I will not be going back to the UK, this is my home.Regards johnsteven

Awesome feeling to have , i will not be going home to the UK soon

What a great interview with T LeMont, Karen family! We had the good fortune to join “the family” for a fabulous dinner at the Acosta’s when we were in Cabrera last month. Part of this great experience was meeting this family and breaking bread with them. We should all be so lucky to have friends and neighbors like T LeMont and the rest of the locals who embrace you like you’re an old lost friend. We truly look forward to the winds of change that will afford us the opportunity to spend a lot more time with our DR friends. Keep the light on for us Barry!

Getting more difficult to do each month. I’m very sad to finally admit its lights out sooner than I originally thought. I guess those new mercury filled bulbs don’t last as long as the manufacturers claimed that they would. Ah the trouble with guarantees eh?
