In this book, you will find not only answers to many of your questions on retiring abroad, but will be introduced to topics you probably may not have thought about yet. You will find the more common topics on why to retire abroad, picking your destination, economic considerations, information on healthcare and security abroad, and language considerations.
At the same time you will be introduced to less well known topics like the perpetual tourist six flags theory, dual citizenship, second passports, and simple ways to lessen the inevitable culture shock you will experience. Want to take your pets with you? There is even an essay on that topic. Finally, I make my top five recommendations for places to retire.
The sections of each chapter were written as stand alone essays. The book can be read in sequence, or you can skip around to your favorite topic. I find that this is what most readers do anyway. Chapter 7 has sections on common questions like: Can I receive my social security abroad? and Expatriate banking options. Want to know how important language is to your successful move, check out the essays in Chapter 8. Hearing conflicts on which countries are best to retire in? Chapter 6 is the place to go for that. Ultimately, you will find yourself asking questions you never thought of previously.
Most people do not know what they don’t know! There is a whole world out there that most of us do not even know exists. This book is designed to give an introduction to as many of those topics as possible, providing a basis for more detailed research before you take your journey on the “Retirement Road Less Traveled”.
