Ready to travel the World? Is it time to find that new, exotic place to live and settle down for a while? Or maybe it is time to do a first trip to test out the waters of a possible location for short or long term living or retirement?
The very first thing we must do is narrow down the near infinite destinations that we could travel to as somewhere we might live (if even for a short period of time). Even before that, you have to have taken the steps to have the available money and/or income to do so, the beginning steps are discussed here and here. Of course, you could just stay at home and watch episodes of House Hunters International (which my wife and I watch religiously), and choose whatever looks good. Mind you, the information presented in that show is definitely biased (why does everyone always want an American style mega-mansion?), often over-priced, and sometimes straight out fictional. Although it is a fun show to watch, with some completely ridiculous expectations and inevitable relationship breakdowns, it is not the best source of solid information for living overseas.
So where can we start?
