10 Reasons Why Retiring Abroad May Not be for You

vacation travel

Do you plan to be that person sitting in that beach chair? If you are thinking of retiring abroad you must be aware of the pros and cons and seriously them both into consideration. As such I came across an article in the latest edition of Escape from America Magazine that I think deserves your attention. It talks about the downsides to retiring abroad – specifically the article’s author gives 10 reasons why retiring abroad may not be for you.

Here is a list of the 10 reasons given by the author:

1.  Homesickness

2. Loneliness

3. Healthcare

4. Affordability

5. Integration Issues

6. Cultural Differences

7. Accessibility

8.  Language Barriers

9. Alienation

10. You Like Your Current Life…

I think I don’t speak foolishly when I say that you owe it to yourself and your family to seriously consider all these reasons. Have a look at the full article for the details of each reason given above.

I hope you found this post useful.

Best of luck with your retirement plans!
