Re: Where do you want to live when you retire?

Hello Info Seeker,

 

I'm in a similar boat.  65.  Retired now.  I decided I would do my international tours and living abroad while I'm still young enough and, hopefully, healthy enough not to need help, and then find a place to live close enough to the kids down the road.

 

May I suggest International Living magazine?  It has all kinds of interesting articles written by people who are living the dream and they go into such places as pricing for food, rent/buy units, healthcare, and other things we want to know.  It's not available on newstands, as far as I know.  Look it up online.

 

Best of luck to you.

All of those things are important. You need to decide which are the most important to you? What is it that gives meaning to your life? Where can you find that?

 

For me, the most important thing was my social support network, since I have no family.

Very good question! 

I'm single, healthy, 62, and might have a modest income at retirement. I'm at the point where I have the following questions:

Should I move near one of my adult children...which one?

Should I move where it is most economical?

Should I move where the weather and amenities are best for me?

I feel like I should play it safe and be prepared ahead of time for circumstances where I might need help and resources, instead of a dream location away from family.

Thanks to everyone for their insights on this forum!

My wife and I plan to live abroad and move from one country to the next every 12-18 months.  It is pretty ambitious, but that's our plan at this time.
