The definitive guide for anyone dreaming of a move to paradise.

Whether motivated by a desire for adventure, or the need to make the most of a diminished nest egg, more and more Americans are considering an overseas retirement. Drawing on her more than three decades of experience helping people relocate happily and successfully, Kathleen Peddicord shows how living in an unconventional retirement destination can cost less than a traditional home in Florida or Arizona. Peddicord addresses all of the essential issues, including:

-finding a home to own or rent
-researching and understanding your tax liability
-obtaining health insurance and medical care
-avoiding common mistakes and pitfalls
-opening a bank account

Whether readers are interested in relatively unknown havens like Nicaragua, well-traveled areas in Italy, or need some help deciding, How to Retire Overseas is the ultimate guide to making retirement dreams come true.

Great for thinking about the possibilities -- though I am far from retirement, I found the author's list of things to consider and tips for research to be thought-provoking. Certainly by now the list of places may be hopelessly outdated, but again, the list serves as a group starting point.

It uses some essential criteria (example: cost of house rental) to grade 14 cities in the world. Although not large choices of location, it provides guideline to evaluate other areas. However it did not mention much about the safety aspect of the country or community (example: crime rate, political unrest).

Now this is highly recommended reading if you are planning on living overseas. It is written for US citizens, but still very useful for anyone considering moving far from home. I would buy this book when I get serious about retirement to my villa in ??
