My last Blog encouraged any and all "Baby Boomers" out there to investigate the possibility of retiring abroad. Fact of the matter is it may or may not be for you.
Some people never move past their own neighborhoods their entire lives. The alway wish to be in their "comfort zones". That is fine for some, not so for others. There thenis the group that do what many of their parents did, that being make it as far as Florida or Arizona each winter. That also is fine, for them.
For me and millions of others there are desires, and needs, to push the envelope a bit further. Financially there can be large advantages. I think the greatest majority desire adventure. For some that may be challenging the expressway to get to the nearest music festival. For others it may mean finding another country that offers "new. By "new" I mean "NEW". New climate, new culture, new foods, new adventure,......."NEW". Most have spent 40 years + doing what they were supposed to do. Plenty of ups and downs and challenges. Raising children, caring for elderly parents, and driving down the road of life with all it's curves, bumps and accidents.
The internet is an amazing source of information. Most have anywhere from a year to several before you are scheduled in your own mind to retire. Investigate the possibilities the world has to offer.
Now it is time for you! Life is short, live it!
