Retiring abroad has never been more accessible or appealing. In addition to a sense of adventure, the allure of an idyllic locale, and the excitement of learning a new culture, Peddicord shows readers how living in an unconventional retirement destination can cost less than a traditional home in Arizona.

Whether you’re in the ‘what if?’ stage, or have graduated to an investigatory visit, or are now seriously intending to live overseas… the book How to Retire Overseas will be one of your essential resources.
