It's not just Florida anymore! This definitive step-by-step guide helps anyone to find, relocate, and save on a home away from home

The effects of the economic downturn on IRAs, 401(k)s, and other retirement savings plans have forced thousands of people to rethink their plans for retirement. But Kathleen Peddicord offers a cheaper option with all the benefits of a stateside retirement: liv­ing overseas.

Retiring abroad has never been more accessible or appealing. In addition to a sense of adventure, the allure of an idyllic locale, and the excitement of learning a new culture, Peddicord shows readers how living in an unconventional retirement destination can cost less than a traditional home in Arizona. This prescriptive guide answers every essential question potential ex-pats have, from instructions on setting up bank accounts to tips on locating great restaurants.

Peddicord has more than twenty-five years of experience helping thousands of people successfully and happily relocate to the retirement of their dreams. From remote and relatively unknown havens like Nicaragua to well-traveled areas in Italy, How to Retire Overseas is the ultimate guide to retiring abroad.

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 Certainly by now the list of places may be hopelessly outdated, but again, the list serves as a group starting point.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 ??
