Lisbon -- from Int'l. Living
Yes, it's late, but here it is. My Friday Favorite is INTERNATIONAL LIVING MAGAZINE.
Maybe you've heard that I want to retire to a stone house somewhere in Europe? International Living Magazine is the key to my escape. Not only do they send a monthly magazine, highlighting the best, the warmest, the cheapest locales available on the globe, but every year they create a master list of the 100 best places to retire.
This year France was #1. I would love France...8 months out of the year, but to me weather is a huge concern. No worries though. I can just scan the detailed scorecard and find the country ranking highest in climate. Are you more concerned about safety and hospitals? Those criteria are scored too. There are nine or ten criteria in all, including infrastructure and culture.
If you're at all interested in living overseas at some point, this magazine is a MUST. If you just want to dream...it's still a nice mag to have.
