Sitting on white sand beaches, eating exotic curries, sipping a delicious cocktail, surfing on perfect waves, exploring picturesque mountaintops – all of these things are available to you. The best part is that these places do not have to be a once in a lifetime dream vacation either, once you have achieved a very moderate level of savings, living in your dream vacation home can be a daily reality.
In almost half of the world, living on under $30000 US ($37000 CAN) for a couple per year will give you a very decent lifestyle. Will this be drinking champagne and eating caviar every night? No, it most definitely will not. But will it be cutting coupons and eating cat-food to survive? It won’t be that either (not even close!)! In fact, many people are surprised at what level of comfort that $30000 US brings, and that it is on the higher end of the spectrum when it comes to living overseas.
