Here are some reader’s comments on content that we’ve created over the years. This content was initially published on GringosAbroad and now is part of Storyteller Travel.

  • Monte Montana: “Dena and Bryan write one of the most interesting and THE most credible blog about being an expat and ways to improve one’s life in a new environment.”
  • Veronica Pelaez: “The information that Bryan and Dena have provided over the years has been beneficial for the obvious reasons, such as daily life details that can only be known with “boots on the ground”. But even more than this, what I have truly appreciated has been that the information presented has been with the truth of the entire situation. Though many aspects of Expat Life are rosy, many are not, as in “real life”. Knowing the truth of the muddier bits helps me to prepare emotionally and intellectually, so that when the time comes for me to make my move, I will have more tools in my belt to get me through the rough spots! Thank you Bryan and Dena!”
  • Bruce Wilkinson: “Once we decided to retire abroad, my wife and I read everything we could find about destinations and the implications of such a life-changing move. In the information-gathering stage our single most helpful discovery was Bryan and Dena Haines’ “GringosAbroad.com.” That occurred eighteen months before we left Bozeman, Montana and moved to Cuenca, Ecuador, where we have now lived for over two years, and from that day to this I’ve read every article the Haines have published and have found their blogs to be balanced, practical and accurate portrayals of expat life as I have experienced it, as well as trustworthy sources of useful information. The Haines cover both the expat and host communities with a positive, refreshing and honest appreciation of the struggles and joys of adopting a new country and culture that we have found invaluable.”
  • Alli, Joseph & Ella Hawley: “Your website has been my family’s go to blog for two years now! Whenever we have a question that needs answered correctly and quickly we always pull up gringosabroad.com! Having a child ourselves we know you look at locating to a foreign country through parents eyes! Keep the info coming!!”
  • Pauline Howes: “I’ve been following your blogs for almost two years now. Living in Ottawa, Canada, I was excited when I first discovered your family blog.  You struck me as brave, adventurous souls.  You’ve proven time and time again, anything is possible if you put your mind to it and plan a little. I’ve learned most useful information from real estate to buying the best coffee!”
  • Magali Ipina: “When my Ecuadorian husband manifested his wish to return to his beloved country, I was excited and nervous at the same time.  I wasn’t sure if we were making the right choice for our family, it felt like a big leap to take.  When I found your blog and saw that a Canadian family like ours had done it, without having any connections with Ecuador, it gave me the courage I needed!  I found a lot of useful information in your articles before we left, and when the big day came I felt ready!”
