Are any retired or retired to be considering living abroad? In my travels I've found former eastern block countries, like Prague of the Czech Republic, intriguing culturally. Also, the quality of life seems to be superb. Currently I'm considering and leaning towards the Tuscanny area of Italy. Any thoughts? By the way, in the earlier discussion about 'where to live', someone posted that Alaska is a high tax state. Not true. We have no income or sales tax. Furthermore every man, woman and child receives an annual check from our 32 billion dollar permanent fund. Last year every person(including babies and children) in Alaska received a check for $1769. Actually if one can tolerate the long winters this would not be a bad place to retire.
