tricomi, one thing you must consider if choosing to retire overseas is health insurance. Medicare will NOT cover you outside the US and the territories.

You may want to consider cultural differences as well as language. If one chooses to live in a country, one should be prepared to learn the local language. Many Americans are choosing countries south of our border in Mexico, Costa Rica, Belize etc. One would worry about safety, but we aren't all that safe in our own country any more (if the gun grabbers have their way, it will only get worse). I have lived in several foreign countries but was always glad to get home. I don't know how I'd feel about it after we were retired. A slower pace would certainly be more acceptable..hope these opinions help. Florence
