“Kathleen, I bought your book and enjoy it, as I do your e-mails every day. I will be retiring in a few years, and you have given me lots to think about.
“One thing I’ve noticed is that almost everything seems to be geared toward married couples. Have you thought about doing something for single retirees?”
— Janice W., United States
Point taken. I’m working on the outline for my next book now. A section on the single adventurer and retiree sounds like a good idea.
“Kathleen, I am a Slovenian living in Brazil and have been reading your e-letter for a long while now. I just want to say that I really enjoy to read every letter from you. Your descriptions are so alive, so incredible.
“The first country I have visited on your recommendation as one of the best retiring places is Medellin. In short, exactly as you described it. I agree with you 100% on this place.
“Next place I shall visit will be Belize, but I feel it is not going to be for me. It is too quiet and too small, but I just want to see it!”
–Mitja P., Brazil
“Kathleen, I hope this reaches you. I would love to live for a while in many of the places you have mentioned in South America. But I would love to do so knowing someone with whom I could pal–a little less lonely. I’m not interested in anything romantic. Just a friend. Do you ever get such requests?”
–Lois W., United States
We do, and my recommendation always is to consider joining our Overseas Retirement Circle, which is a community of like-minded folks considering all these ideas and opportunities to live and invest overseas. This is the best way I know to connect with others just like you thinking about doing the things you’re thinking about doing…and all interested in finding ways to do things together.
“Kathleen, I just read my latest e-mail from you, and, for the first time in 10 years of reading your products, I noticed you offered a bit of advice about single people looking to not be single in other countries. Thank you.
“I’ve often wondered why you haven’t incorporated some small help for single people in some of your programs. I’m glad to see I’m not the only single person considering a move to a foreign country.”
–Charles C., United States
We’re working on a special report focused entirely on helping singles plan for new lives overseas. Watch this space.
