(FIRE. Financial Independence Retire Early).
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHERE TO GO?
You want to live an affordable cultured life, with a slower pace with time for friends and community, that is easy on your pension and investments.

In these conversations, no one pipes up with any facts to balance out the greener grass syndrome, or just to help someone get to the facts to make a proper decision. I tell you this to show you why I help people just like you FI-RE earlier and better at home or abroad.
WANT TO F.I.R.E. EARLIER AND BETTER BY LIVING OR RETIRING ABROAD?

It says there has been 182 incidents of violent crime in PDC. A city of 245,000 people.
