    Living in Foreign Countries

    If you could live now or retire in another country where would it be and why?

    I'm leaning towards Norway when I get a bit older. My backup is Thailand.
    I have a head start on speaking Norwegian, and I know the lay of the land having visited many times and having several friends there. I also have a place to build a house if I choose to live there.
    Thailand is cheap and beautiful. It is friendly to expats, and I'm also familiar with it.

    It's gonna be Greece or maybe Croatia. Possibly Canary Islands. Maybe Baja. As long as I can escape all the people I'm fine.

    Norway is cool af, but those long dark winters, I don't know. Couldn't do Flori, I mean Thailand due to the high humidity.

      Realistically, Canada. I was >||< THIS close to moving to Gillam, Manitoba at the hydro plant.

      I'd rock Norway though. Some place cold. 40º is my comfort zone.

      edit: wait, I recant my Norway claim. Iceland. Hot blonde chicks and badass 4x4s.

          Norway has the highest wages and likely the highest taxes. Should be expensive to live there? It is nice however...I know of a couple that moved to Costa Rica. Contrary to what many think, it's not a shithole, quality health care is available. The people are friendly and literate. You need to learn to avoid certain situations just like any where and of course Spanish. Set up an account with a reputable bank that can draw on funds from a USA account...

                I was gonna say we're full but I'd much rather be invaded by decreped old USAnians than all the sandjogger migrant's we're currently having leach on us.

                      Been there and done that

                      Retired in 2016 and moved to the island of Roatan. I would not change anything, we love it, inexpensive cost of living and super laid back lifestyle. Bonus, I get to see hotties in bikini’s daily at the beach

                        Honestly, I doubt I'll ever live outside of the U.S. I enjoy traveling abroad, but at the end of the day I'm an American.

                          I was just about to post Roatan but you beat me to it. Favorite place I've been. Funny because I'm typically not a beach or island person but I think it's the general attitude/ lifestyle of everyone there that makes it so appealing
