International Living started with a newsletter thirty years ago which sparked a big idea. With an international team of editors and writers based around the world, International Living is a publishing group which advocates the idyllic notion that one can live a healthy, low-cost and stress-free lifestyle and retire to unspoiled seaside locations, emerging cities around the world where fewer people know about.
The monthly newsletter of International Living covers topics such as retiring overseas, international real estate, investment and travel where one can subscribe to free of charge. A daily “IL Postcard” with articles written by its team of writers is emailed to 400,000 readers.
Some interesting articles which I came across include:
- Retire in Costa Rica: Why 20,000 US expats have got it right
- Four of the best beaches in Mexico
- Why one expat opened a cafe in David, Panama
- Mediterranean Malta – the best climate in the world
- $11,000 riverside lots in Argentina
- Hunting for bargains in Tuscany
- Irish village life
- Sell your house – and buy 3 dream homes in Brazil
- Cash in on the Irish crisis
- Shanghai – China’s fast-moving cosmopolitan city
- Retire to the Philippines on $800 a month
You look out your window, past your gardener, who is busily pruning the lemon, cherry, and fig trees … amid the splendour of gardenias, hibiscus, and hollyhocks.
The sky is clear blue. The sea is a deeper blue, sparkling with sunlight.
A gentle breeze comes drifting in from the ocean, clean and refreshing, as your maid brings you breakfast in bed.
For a moment, you think you have died and gone to heaven. But this paradise is real. And affordable. In fact, it costs only half as much to live this dream lifestyle … as it would to stay in your own home!
