The Answer May Be To Get New Friends
Oct. 14, 2011, Panama City, Panama: If your friends don’t understand your interest in living, retiring, and investing overseas, try to get them to take a trip overseas with you.
Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
Unfortunately, looking at this, I had to admit, this representation is not far from how most Americans view the rest of the world. Only about 30% of Americans have passports...and 50% of those use their passports only for travel to Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.Obviously, you have a different view of the world or you wouldn't have signed up for this e-letter. But maybe your friends don't share your perspective...and maybe their response to your interest in living, traveling, investing, and retiring to another country ranges from shock to dismay, even paranoia.
