Peering into a webcam, her face intermittently frozen over an iffy Skype connection in Medellin, Colombia, Lizz Quain was explaining not long ago why she uprooted her 9-year-old twins almost a year and a half ago to travel the world. Ms. Quain, who is in her 40s, owned a childrens play cafe and preschool near Seattle before she renounced her American middle-class existence in August 2016, fed up with what she described as a stifling, consumerist culture.

We left the US when Bill Clintdog was reelected. How come nobody ever did a story on us?
She fled “Trump’s America” in August 2016?
I’d want to leave Seattle and San Francisco too, but wouldn’t blame all of the U.S. for what the Left Coast has done to buying a home. Or paying for a nanny.
If all you have to have is 60K to roam around, how is that 60K not put to better use investing in a home in the U.S.? All they had to do was move away from their uber-progressive, uber-expensive areas to get some financial relief.
The good things mentioned is entrepreneurship and spending time with their own children. Maybe they’ll learn something after all.
Quote from my beloved Mexican wife from Mexico.
“It is easy to be a Marxist if you are rich.” She left Marxism many many years ago.
The real evil of Marxism is as written it is most noble and just. It does not work. It always turns into totalitarianism without exception. Just look at what happened to the most prosperous nation in South America. That nation was Venezuela which today is a failed state.
For those that leave our nation due to Trump that is okay. You can only afford your travels due to the underlying economics of our great nation that afford your leaving. I would most suggest that you go to Venezuela for a year.
I lived in Venezuela in the 70s. It was good but corrupt. No person was hungry and today hunger is common. I must mention that today my nation the USA is equally corrupt at the highest levels.
Great, more MAGA! Now, when will the NY Slimes finally leave the country it hates so much ?
Forgot to add this.
My ophthalmologists assistant is from Venezuela. She is a lovely charming lady. We spoke about the problems in Venezuela as I lived there in the past. I asked her what she does for her family back home? She said she sends food. Being familiar with the Postal System of Venezuela I was surprised as anything of value gets stolen. I asked, “do they get it?” She said yes. I asked how do you send it? She said, “Amazon. com”
Yes, please take your fatherless spawn out of the country where someone else can deal with the consequences of your outrageously irresponsible choices.
“Single mother”, vast majority of the cases = unbearable bitch-slut and child abuser.
Don’t come back, y’all, ya hear?
Ironic isn’t it? And the election was?
“She fled “Trump’s America” in August 2016?”
The fake media is not even sentient.
They wallow in their shame!
If my memory is correct, in August of 2016 the mere thought of Trump actually becoming the prez was a joke among libs and considered a long shot by true conservatives.
If this leftists lib was tired of America in 2016, it certainly was not Trump’s fault. It’s amazing, the NYT trying to blame stuff on Trump before he was prez. They must have finally realized blaming Bush for everything was just plain tired.
10 years from now, even less people will notice that...
It’s nice to live off “inheritances and savings”. Let’s see a followup on this in ten years. I suspect many of them will be broke and insisting on US government handouts.
And she heads to Medellin?????
These people are heroes to some and yet if illegals are deported, it's almost a crime against humanity to uproot children from the only life they knew.
Liberals are such hypocrites.
Which they can only do in the freedom and prosperity the country they despise so much, provides.
This article is disappointing. These people didn’t leave the USA. They are just on extended vacations.
I would applaud them if they revoked their citizenship and left to become citizens of some other country. But no, they are largely doing this on the trappings (money and belongings) they accumulated in the terrible “bourgeois, capitalist country”, their campers, computers, trust funds, houses, etc.
What a bunch of pathetic posers.
No such plans anymore since the country went to hell in a hand basket and was taken over by the drug cartels. If he could sell it, he'd only get a fraction of what he paid for it.
As for me, I've found a whole new life in retirement, immersing myself in all the sports I enjoyed as a kid. You couldn't pay me to leave this country now unless the country of choice had all fun stuff available to me that I enjoy today.......
She’s now a psychic in Columbia? LOL. Lizz with two Zs is FOS. Only in the New Yawk Times. America’s Fake News HQ.
