Totally Submitting to Thailand’s Charms

Saturday, March 11th, 2017   3:39 pm |  Category:   Life, Retirement locations   |  2 Comments  | Author:     bio

It’s only been a few days, but I’ve already settled into a very comfortable routine here in the Little seaside town of Ao Nang Beach, Thailand.   Let me start by saying that everything is astonishingly affordable in the “land of smiles”. And this fact invariably affects the spending choices you make.   For example, …more

I received an email from an expat living in Spain’s Costa del Sol last week, who was understandably concerned and angry about the falling pound. Basically, he was asking what the UK Government was going to do about it. Apparently, both he and his wife are now having to seriously cut back on both food …more

A New Expat Life or an Extended Holiday?

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016   9:03 pm |  Category:   Life, Retirement locations   |  1 Comment  | Author:     bio

A new survey of retired British expats has produced some interesting, but not surprising results.

Section 107, Row 23, Seats 22 & 23.   There they were! Sitting on my desk in two neat folders. Two sets of fifteen tickets. Each in three gleaming, colorful perforated sheets. It was exhilarating to see them there … next to a pile of bills, a couple of pieces of scratch paper with some …more

Return migration by retirees

‘My dread is that I will die before returning’. I read this heartfelt proclamation on a BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) website message board, which had invited responses to a TV programme about ‘The ten pound poms’ – British citizens who emigrated to Australia in the 1960s and 1970s under the assisted package scheme.  Clearly, one …more

Have you ever gone to a place that leaves you speechless?   Have you ever seen something that makes you stop what you are doing and causes you to sit up and take notice?   Have you ever turned a corner and suddenly found yourself muttering “oh my God” under your breath?   The setting, …more

For Nature and Wildlife Lovers – off the beaten path in Australia

Monday, November 23rd, 2015   6:58 pm |  Category:   Retirement locations, Travel   |  4 Comments  | Author:     bio

I was born and raised in Australia, started travelling overseas in my early twenties, and in my early thirties (over thirty years ago) I emigrated to Canada. Almost all my exploration of Australia has been done with my husband over the past five years when we expanded family visits to include seeing the country. We …more

Mesa, Arizona!   My wife and I have been coming here for the last twelve years now and we love it. The weather is warm. The sun shines most of the time and there’s lots to do. When the calendar turns to October and the days start getting cooler, that’s when we know that our …more
