Mandy & Me

Leaving behind a large network of girlfriends and starting over in Nicaragua hasn’t been easy. Regardless of how much I enjoy spending time with my husband Gord, being with your significant other 24 hours a day isn’t healthy for any relationship. And although Gord tries, he just can’t seem to relate when I complain about having a bad hair day.

That being said, I’m so thankful to have crossed paths with Mandy.

Moods Nightclub - Managua, Nicaragua

Mandy is originally from North Carolina. She’s been living in San Juan del Sur for the past four years with her husband Cory and she is my new Nicaraguan bestie.

Mandy is an animal lover, shoe-aholic and Mom to one dog, one cat and two parrots.

Aside from Jack Daniels, Diet Coke is her drink of choice. She loves Eskimo ice cream and pool days just as much as I do.

It wasn’t long after meeting Mandy I realized that her personality matched her appearance. She’s a true beauty.

Mandy is fun to shop with and easy to be with. I love how she says “y’all” and appreciate that she helps me with my Spanish.

Moods Nightclub - Managua, NicaraguaThis brown-eyed babe can usually be found at Republika (the bar her and her husband own) mixing mean drinks or popping caps off ice cold Tonas.  Whether you’re a traveler passing through or new to the expat community of San Juan del Sur be sure to stop by and say hello. I guarantee she’ll greet you with a warm and friendly smile.
