How To Retire At Any Age—
And Guarantee Yourself A Richer Lifestyle

Plus, Revealed Inside Your Free Book:
13 Top Places Where You Can Live The Good Life From As Little As US$700 A Month


What is your Panama dream? Come, let us help you realize it…

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

I’d like to send you a brand-new book… with my compliments.

That is, free.

It’s an actual paperback that you can hold in your hands and stack on your shelf.

In fact, it’s my newest book… hot off the presses from Penguin Random House.

And it gives you the secret to retiring at any age… while, at the same time, guaranteeing yourself a richer lifestyle.

It also reveals the 13 best places today for living the good life… places where you can retire “up”… on a budget of as little as $700 a month.

More on this in a minute.

First… some context…

A recent survey revealed that 42% of baby boomers don’t have any retirement savings… nada.

Meantime, 46% of baby boomers expect they’ll need at least $45,000 of annual retirement income to stay comfortable.

That’s a lot of catching up ahead for those with zero savings.

Another report predicts that, by 2024, more than one-third of America’s 65- to 69-year-olds will still be tied to the workplace.

Many, unfortunately, because they simply have no choice.

But the good news is that you don’t have to be that person working until 69 and beyond…

There is a way out.

A way for you to have more freedom… to live a better lifestyle… and to do it all while you’re still fit and healthy enough to enjoy the best things in life…

Retiring Overseas

I’m talking about retiring overseas.

And, since you’re paying attention here, I figure you’ve at least been considering this idea…

Maybe, though… understandably… you feel that starting a whole new life in a foreign country is beyond your reach.

In fact, I’d content that moving overseas is a lot easier than you might think.

Every year, I’m getting more and more personal accounts from fellow Americans on the move—all from different walks of life… of varying ages and personal circumstances… and operating with a wide range of budgets…

I’d like to help you join their ranks… to show you how to get from where you are now to living the lifestyle of your dreams… in a place where you’ll be welcomed and supported… safe and comfortable… far from the frantic pace of workaday life… enjoying the best this world of ours has to offer…

Enjoying great weather and a low (sometimes absurdly low) cost of living…

This idea comes with very big advantages…

And it all begins with addressing the plan for your future retirement in an entirely different way.

To get started on this journey, here are three critical questions to consider…

#1: What If You Could Retire
Right Now?

While the majority of Americans approaching retirement today are stuck in a waiting game, you could retire now.

I mean right now… if you wanted.

And I’d like to help you fully explore your “retire-now” options.

There is no perfect age and there is no perfect time to make a move overseas.

But there is a right time—and that is: When you want!

Chiang Mai

Take my friends Paul and Vicki Terhorst, for example…

Paul and Vicki retired at 35—walking away from the corporate world for a life of perpetual adventure and fun. Over the more than 35 years since, the Terhorsts have travelled the globe as their imaginations and their wanderlust have inspired them.

The couple has lived in Buenos Aires, Paris, Chiang Mai, and beyond… forever on the trail of discovery.

Of course, a life of perpetual travel isn’t for everyone.

No problem… because this idea is infinitely customizable.

Take Rob Burrows, for example.

I love Rob’s story.

As Rob tells it…

“I was living in Ohio but vacationing in the Caribbean all the time.

“I was working 50 weeks a year… suffering through winters… counting down to every two-week vacation in the islands.

“That meant 14 days a year I was happy.

“What if,” Rob finally thought,“I were to move to the Caribbean?

“Then I’d have two days each weekend to enjoy being in the Caribbean. Even without taking a vacation, that’d mean I’d be happy 104 days a year!

“I’m no math wiz,” Rob admits…“but it seemed like a no-brainer to me.”

Crazy Canucks in Ambergris

So that’s what Rob did. He moved to the Caribbean. Now, five years later, Rob is living on Ambergris Caye, Belize, running “Crazy Canucks,” a beachside watering hole that’s a favorite among both visitors and local gringos.

I can honestly say that I’m a truly happy person here,” Rob says.

“People often ask if I’d go back to the United States…

“No way! I’ve gotten way too used to my 15-hour work-week.

“I love the water, so I spend all my free time sailing, surfing, snorkeling, and fishing. Why in the world would I leave my beautiful island home in the Caribbean?”

Or how about Alyson Sheldrake…

Alyson wasn’t looking for a new life in the Caribbean for her retirement…

Alyson dreamed of retiring to the Old World… and, six years ago, that’s what she and her husband did.

The couple reinvented their lives on Portugal’s Algarve coast.

How is that working out for them?

“Every day brings new delights and new things to enjoy,” Alyson says… “new moments that make you stop and relax and enjoy the slower pace of life here, the fabulous landscapes, and the people…

“We’re living in the small town of Ferragudo. We don’t fight traffic. We don’t even drive most days. I can honestly tell you that we have no stress in our lives at all.

“We wander cobblestoned streets and wave to the shopkeepers we pass. They all know us and smile and wave in return.

“We shop at the market each day for fresh produce and seafood and then prepare meals together each evening. We take long walks on the cliffs and along the beaches.

“We’re outside all the time, enjoying the sunshine. We didn’t make this move with the specific idea that we wanted to live healthier, but that has been one of the biggest benefits of our new lifestyle here in the Algarve. It’s hard not to eat healthy and it’s hard not to get exercise naturally each day. It’s just how you live.

“We’re living such a richer life than before we made this move… and for much less cost…”

You can have all this, too… in your version of paradise… doing the things you love to do.

Of course, it can be daunting to think about starting over in a new country.

But, after going through three international moves with my family, I can tell you that once you’ve settled into the new life of your dreams, you’ll wonder what in the world was ever holding you back in the first place…

they wished they had packed their bags sooner.

In fact, among all the expats I’ve met around the world, the one resounding regret I’ve heard is that they wished they had packed their bags sooner.

So… no more getting hung up on your age… or waiting for exactly the right time… or until you have a certain amount of savings set aside…

No more worrying about any of the other reservations you may be harbouring either…

Whatever concerns you have… set them aside.

Today… right now… I’m here to help you begin making your plan for where you’d like to go and, as well, to help you work through everything you need to address and accomplish to get yourself set up in your new home… maybe in as little as 6 or 12 months from this moment…

Before we get to that, though, here’s the second critical question you need to ask yourself when approaching this whole live- and retire-overseas idea…

#2: What’s Your Idea Of An Ideal Life?

In my 20 years living overseas—and more than three decades spent mixing with expats the world over—I’ve come to understand that retiring overseas is not as simple as finding a super-cheap place where you can stretch your income.

In considering your options overseas, you have to think about what each place has to offer you.

Because, really, the point of this opportunity is to uncover a richer lifestyle—whatever that means to you

You may wish to follow in the footsteps of Bill and Anne Piatt, for example, who live part-time in a charming Caribbean beach town—the perfect escape from running a busy bed-and-breakfast in Virginia…

What is your Panama dream? Come, let us help you realize it…

Or Darren and Wendy Howarter who simply couldn’t face another winter of Illinois snow. Today, as full-time expats in Medellín, Colombia, this couple enjoys year-round, spring-like temperatures in a cosmopolitan city where they can enjoy a cocktail on their balcony as they watch the sun set each evening…

Or Stephanie Calcott who—fed up of being on the road for work too many weeks of the year—longed to spend more time with her husband and young son. This California family sold everything they owned Stateside and set off for a big adventure on Portugal’s stunning coast…

All of these expats would tell you that they live on lower—in some cases far lower—budgets in their new homes overseas than they did back home.

However, I’d say that a lower cost of living is not really the biggest perk of going overseas… and I know that all of the real-life expats I’ve been telling you about would agree.

This discussion about the idea of retiring to a new country usually begins with cost.

Sure, we’d all like to live for less… and to stretch whatever nest egg we’ve got as far as possible.

For some of us, it’s a critical matter. Some folks nearing retirement simply don’t have enough to retire on.

Fair enough.

But once you get into this… once you begin looking more closely at the prospect of a new life in a new country, you realize that a reduced (maybe way reduced) cost of living is only the beginning of the upsides.

As important… in fact, I’d say, in the long run, more important… is the improved quality of life that I promise you is waiting for you just on the other side of this.

Your new life in whatever destination is calling your name could be fuller, richer, more interesting, more diverse, and more full of adventure, discovery, and fun than your old life ever had any chance of being.

Moving to a new country is a chance for reinvention… for starting over…

In a place where you’re part of a new community, contributing, learning, growing…

Here’s how Stephanie Calcott describes the changes she’s seen since her family’s move:

“In California we were always in a hurry, always rushing. We never seemed to have time to just enjoy life and each other.

“We now spend our mornings exploring the town or having a meia de leite (espresso with milk) on the beach. We take Portuguese lessons twice a week. We have family dinner every night, which we never had time for back when we were living in the States.

“The back-to-basics lifestyle has given us exactly what we wanted… time together as a family!”

What is your Panama dream? Come, let us help you realize it…

For the Calcotts, it was the Algarve that ticked all the boxes.

Does the idea of living on one of Europe’s most stunning coastlines appeal to you?

Or do you have something entirely different in mind?

Perhaps you’re keeping your options wide open…

Wherever you stand, I have you covered.

Which brings me to the final critical question you should be asking yourself at this stage…

#3: Where Could You Go?

This is the point where many would-be expats and overseas retirees get overwhelmed…

Ok… so take a step back…

There are 195 countries in the world.

Not all of them are places you’d want to live… but a handful of them offer irresistibly tempting lifestyle options right now.

Start with a list. What are you looking for?

Here are some suggestions… to get your imagination flowing…

Maybe you’d like to find:

  • A high standard of living (at an affordable cost)…
  • Plenty of opportunities for culture and leisure…
  • Loads of sunshine…
  • A strong, reliable infrastructure…
  • High-quality health care…
  • A welcoming community (with an established expat presence)…

Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

I could right now point you toward 13 countries that measure up according to these criteria.

I introduce each of these world’s best places to retire—some where you could live the good life on a budget of as little as $700 a month—in Section III of my new book.

Before we look more closely at your best options for where to think about reinventing your life overseas, let’s back up a little…

Remember life before GPS? Those times when you started out on a car journey with a sketchy idea of where you were going… and, after a series of wrong turns (and an argument with your spouse or travel companion), you arrived at your destination… tired, stressed, emotional, and wishing you’d never left home?

That’s just scratching the surface of how I felt during my first international move.

Leaving behind Baltimore, Maryland, where I’d lived my whole life until this point, for little Waterford, Ireland, I had no idea what lied ahead.

I consoled myself by reminding myself that I was moving to an English-speaking country. How difficult could this be…

Well… more difficult than I imagined, I discovered.

When you’re living out of a hotel room, with a homesick 8-year-old, while searching around frantically for an apartment to rent…

When you’re trying to train up new staff who sometimes seem more concerned about their tea-breaks and holidays (protected by law) than the looming deadlines…

When your charming new Georgian country home has to have its walls torn down and whole floors removed… thanks to Ireland’s “rising damp”…

That’s when you realize that every paradise comes with challenges.

What is your Panama dream? Come, let us help you realize it…

I’d like to say that my family’s second international move—to Paris—was smoother. But this time around I had a new language to contend with… not to mention the infamous French red tape to navigate (the French, remember, invented the word for “bureaucracy”)…

If I’d known then what I know now, I could have saved myself a lot of time, money, and sleepless nights.

But, back then, there was little to no help available for the rookie expat.

In Waterford, Ireland, and, later, after our third international move to Panama City, Panama, we were among only a handful of pioneering expats in town.

We figured everything out, day by day, through trial and (lots of) error.

This is not how I recommend you approach your own international move.

Not only because it’s costly (we’re talking tens-of-thousands-of-dollars costly)… but also because those first few months—when you should be enjoying your new life—go by in a blur as you try to figure out the most basic things.

As the Founding Publisher of Live and Invest Overseas, it’s my mission to help you navigate your move as smoothly and as painlessly as possible… so that you savor—rather than survive—your early days in your new home.

It is in that spirit that I speak with you today…

As I mentioned, I’d like to send you a free copy of my new book, “How to Retire Overseas: Everything You Need to Know to Live Well (For Less) Abroad.

Published by Penguin Random House, this 330-page book introduces you to the top 13 escapes worth your consideration right now…

While also sharing my no-holds-barred insights on moving, living, investing, and doing business overseas… based on 30 years covering this beat and 20 years of first-hand experience.

Recently updated and expanded for its Second Edition release, the book lists for sale on Amazon for $16. However, today, in an effort to share this opportunity as far and wide as possible, I’d like to put a copy of my book in your hands… to arm you with both the knowledge and the confidence you need to begin taking action toward realizing your own live- and retire-overseas dreams.

To give you an idea of what you can expect from your free copy of my new book, I’d like to give you a sneak peek inside…

“For anyone considering retiring overseas, this book is a must..”

–Chicago Tribune

First, though, I should probably take a minute to introduce myself properly.

About The Author

Again, my name is Kathleen Peddicord. For more than 30 years, I have been exploring the world for fun and profit—and reporting back about my discoveries for hundreds of thousands of readers.

My family and I have been living overseas for 20 of those years—originally leaving the United States behind for our first adventure in Waterford, Ireland. From Waterford we moved to Paris, France, and from there, in 2008, we made our third international move to Panama City, Panama…

Most recently, my husband Lief Simon and I have returned to Parisian life. Now we divide our time between France and Panama.

In total, I have traveled to more than 75 countries, invested in real estate in 24, established businesses in 7, and renovated properties in 6. I’m interviewed and quoted regularly by The New York Times, Money magazine, CNN, and beyond, and I think it’s fair to say that I am considered the world’s most well-respected authority on overseas living and retirement.

I have written several books on these topics… including the brand-new edition of “How To Retire Overseas” that I would like to send you free today.

The only way to approach this very big idea of relocating to a new country is to break it down into manageable steps.

Specifically, as I detail in Section I of my book, I recommend that you begin with these 10 steps… all of which you can begin to take action on now, from home.

Here goes… here’s how you begin to set yourself up for a successful move overseas…

Start with:

(Pages 13-24.)
  • How To Get Started Focusing In On Where To Go. We’ll dig deeper into the world’s best places to live later, but here I share the 4 things you need to know as you begin your search. (Pages 24-28.)

  • How To Save Yourself Thousands Of Dollars In Taxes Every
    even live tax-free… depending on where you choose to relocate… and how much of the year you spend in residence. (Pages 33-38.)
  • How To Find The Best Health Care And Insurance Plan—including the 3 top international health insurers for Americans overseas… as well as the big potential upsides of “going naked” in your approach to local medical services. (Pages 39-46.)
  • How To Buy Your New Home Overseas… if you decide that’s what you want to do… and when it makes more sense to rent instead. Plus, the secret real estate agents overseas hope you never find out… and the 12 things to know before you even think about signing a property purchase agreement. (Pages 46-56.)
  • Sell It… Store It… Or Ship It? Ready for a yard sale? You’ll be surprised how little you actually need in your new life overseas… how much cheaper certain items can be overseas… and 3 items I recommend you definitely do not bring with you. (Pages 56-63.)
  • How To Create Your Own “Portable Office.” Learn how to stay connected with friends and family… manage your banking and bill payments… and get paid by your clients from anywhere in the world. Also, the best way to receive mail in your new home overseas. (Pages 63-68.)

Following through all 10 steps that I’ll walk you through in this section of my book will lay a solid foundation for your move.

Then, these issues addressed, you’re ready for the next step… the most exciting part of the process…

The search.

Here’s what other readers have said about How to Retire Overseas: Everything You Need to Know to Live Well (For Less) Abroad…

“Very well-written guide to retiring overseas. I’m certainly considering doing exactly that and I think more and more people will be doing likewise in the next few years. Kathleen Peddicord is, of course, the ‘go to’ source for this kind of material and I think her gift is making it sound do-able and she writes in a warm, encouraging tone.”

Helena C.

“An excellent, comprehensive guide for those considering retiring abroad. Can help to avoid mistakes and risks you never thought of!”

Brenda F.

“I subscribe to Kathleen’s internet information letters. It’s nice to have it organized and in one place. I recommend it for anyone traveling and looking for places affordable for longer vacations or to establish residency outside the USA.”

Kathleen K.

“Not only does the author provide useful tips about living in numerous countries, but she also has a scale for rating different elements related to taxes, cost of living, and other crucial consideration factors. In addition, she provides insights into various cultural and geographic areas that help paint a picture of what life might be like in a particular country. I highly recommend this as a resource for anyone trying to decide if and where they might want to retire in the near future.”

Robert W. L.

“I think I have tried figuring out retirement overseas backward. But it is a journey and everyone has their own way to research. Starting over again, I would begin with a really good book on the issue, and this book is one of those books. Since she has been in the business for many many years, she knows what people need to find out. She also asks questions, like a pop quiz to gauge just where you might be in deciding what to do.”
