Is 2013 the year you start thinking about retirement, or even making serious plans? If yes, then you may be interested in the recently released list of top international retirement venues.
International Living has compiled its annual listing of the best places to retire abroad in 2013, as outlined in a recent article titled, “The World’s Top Retirement Havens in 2013.”
Maybe it’s been in the back of your mind for a while, and maybe it’s just never even occurred to you to look past the U.S borders, but either way it’s something worth considering. While retiring abroad is simply not the same as retiring in the States, that’s precisely one of its draws. On the other hand, the devil is always in the details and the differences can be significant.
For example, were you living abroad, would there be something or someone of importance to you that would be state-side? Similarly, is there something important to you and your family that couldn’t be taken abroad, or even owned from afar?
Retiring abroad can represent an opportunity to finally go back out into the world, make some new discoveries, and maybe have a few adventures. Either way, when it comes to retirement, now is the time to plan for your time later.
