This book addresses all of the subjects that need to be considered by anyone intending to retire abroad. Continuous attention must be given to both physical and financial safety and security. Matters such as health, language, visas, income and pensions all have to be addressed. As much as possible should be done before making any irrevocable decision or final move to a new country. A brief look at history, politics and the legal system will also be of value. Social and environmental aspects of any move should also be examined. The climate, time changes and even driving rules can make the difference between a good retirement decision and cause for regret. It is impossible to learn all that is necessary from a book or from the experiences of others. First-hand information is not just recommended, it is vital. Also mentioned is an alternative to retirement to just one particular country. This is a lifestyle choice that is not for everyone but it is, today, a viable option.
