Retire overseas and escape from your dull, monotonous, mundane and ordinary lifestyle. Escape to a world full of exciting opportunities and experiences.
At times it will be a bit daunting. At times you will wonder why you've done it and yet at other times wonder why you didn't do it years ago.
It's a life changing challenge but with all the support available from organisations and people who've already "done it"... it's actually pretty simple and easy.
The 9 Great Reasons
1. When moving to a cheaper country … either less First World or "developing" you will live a better lifestyle for a fraction of the cost at home.
2. A relaxed "laid back lifestyle". No more long commutes or endless traffic jams. Retire overseas to simpler, happier, healthier, stress free life.
3. Near perfect weather. Where you never again have to heat your house, shovel snow, or scrape ice from your windows. Where every day it is comfortable and cool to go for walks, play golf or read in the shade of a tree.
4. Get away from the growing unemployment and negativity, and where work has become a day to day drag. You can escape the 8-to-5 drudgery of a day job and work for yourself. There are many opportunities to completely overhaul and reinvent yourself, or not work at all if that's what you choose.
5. Many overseas countries are looking for skilled people to develop their economies. As a result they make it very attractive to immigrate and to start your own business. They understand the attraction of a country where you'll pay less taxes and keep more of what you earn.
6. Retire overseas to a developing country which is about to take off. Theopportunities to share your expertise and make money is great. By getting in on the ground floor you will be in a position to profit.
7. Live your passion or dream. If you move to an exciting exotic location you may actually see a lot more of your family … and have great quality time with them. Write the book you always thought about writing … whether as an aspiring J K Rowling or just because you always wanted to. Spend your leisure days hiking, playing golf, fishing, or snorkelling.
8. Get your money's worth out of your taxes. The finances of many First World countries are a mess. They have wasted vast sums of money building empires and shoveling funds into basket case economies. All paid for by unfortunate tax payers. If you feel this way this is an excellent opportunity to rearrange your financial affairs to your benefit.
9. Last but not least … one of the best reasons to retire overseas to is kindle a spirit of adventure. To follow the footsteps of our forebears who went out to discover and explore a new world. It may be a chance to learn a new language, make new friends and to expose ourselves to, and experience, something completely different.
Do it the 3-6-6 way. Start with a short 3 week visit, then if you like it, a longer 6 week stay and then the final live-in of 6 months.
So what do you have to lose? Take the first step by easing out of your rut. Ignore any naysayers and create your own experience by just living the experience.

I took on the iconic 4 day 3 night Inca Trail Expedition a month before my 70th birthday. It has a number of physical challenges but acclimatization, or acclimating, is very important.
