Canadian "baby boomer" will be traveling to various Asian, East Europe, and South American countries (Sept, 2018 - whenever I find right spot) . Focus on culture, living costs, and lifestyle to explore and find best option to set up my retirement home. I welcome companions to share in the adventures as well as local contacts to "hang out"
guide, and possibly stay with , while in their area.

There are a few youtube vloggers that cover retirement in Asia quite extensively (probably other continents s well).
'retirecheapjc' is one of the most informative ones, but there are loads more.
From 'Kev in thailand' through 'life beyond the seas' and 'Gordon Tickle'.
Personally I think Thailand is the best option at the moment, as it's set up for foreigners and is an amazing mix of 1st world and 3rd world. They also have a 'retirement visa' system but you need to be careful about visa info as it's the same as all other Asian countries. It can change day to day with little (if any) notice.... from application perspective rather than a 'during visa' change.
Good luck.
