Ever thought about retiring overseas? If you answered yes, you need to read this great article by Kathleen Peddicord (of Live and Invest Overseas fame). In Kathleen’s HuffPost write-up, David and Cathy Thompkins tell their story of how a rock-solid western US couple moved from Northern Idaho to Cayo, Belize just a year ago.
If you’re going to consider retirement overseas, you should probably make a few test runs first. Spend some extended-time in the locations you’re considering. This is a good rule-of-thumb even if you’re considering a domestic move right here in the good ole USA. Just a few of the big challenges that David and Cathy faced included; What to do with all their stuff back home, where to find food, and how to build new relationships.
As you can imagine, the people in Belize are great – and things seem to be working out swimmingly (pun intended) for the Tompkins’. If you’re looking to retire in Belize, or anywhere else for that matter – Do your homework.
