How to Retire Comfortably for Under $1,500 a Month - Yahoo! Finance
I found this to be a very interesting article about one couple who explored their options and chose to retire in a foreign country. The comments at the bottom list many pros, cons, and alternate ideas.
There are many 1st generation immigrants who come to America, work until retirement and then go "home" and live on their social security income and other investments. I know some that have been quite prosperous doing this. Sorry I don't have the numbers to share but I have heard many conversations along these lines and know people who have done it.
We don't usually consider ALL our retirement options. What's your opinion? Is living overseas something you would consider if it meant living a more comfortable lifestyle?
