For this year’s Global Retirement Index, we crunched hundreds of data points and spent weeks on the ground in the field. The extra effort proved worthwhile.
Here's a round-up of some of the weird and wonderful events taking place across the globe this September.
From steaks in Buenos Aires to tapas in Madrid, some cities are worth visiting for the food alone. Below, our writers give their tips and recommendations for eating well in 10 of the world’s culinary capitals. First up is Bangkok. Bangkok’s lower Sukhumvit Road area is an oft-missed foodie’s paradise.
Visit Mexico's Colonial Highlands in festival season, travel through Panama VIP style, avoid airport "naked scanners" and get your checked baggage fee back when your luggage is lost. It's the latest International Living Globetrotter.
It’s not hard to believe in miracles once you see the Sanctuario de las Lajas, an incredible feat of faith and engineering in the municipality of Ipiales in southern Colombia. Legend has it that in 1754, a woman named Maria Mueces and her deaf and mute daughter, Rosa, sought shelter from a thunderstorm in a cave in the valley of the Guáitara River, known for its ﬂat rock formations that resemble lajas, or ﬂoor tiles.
A deserted beach that feels remote…yet isn’t… A beach where, beyond the breaking waves, white foam caps skim along the deep blue ocean. On land, a steady breeze rustles through the dune grasses…white clouds drift by and ﬂocks of birds swoosh down, ﬁshing along the coast. That’s what you’ll found in Rocha, Uruguay.
I’m in Cuenca, a provincial capital less than an hour by train from Madrid. For budding expats who dream of living in Spain, provincial cities like Cuenca are a great option. It's within 60 minutes of Madrid and offers a relaxed, inexpensive lifestyle in a scenic setting.
Even travel writers need escapes. One of my favorite getaways is Alicante, a city on Spain’s Costa Blanca.
Times were good until the economy began its downturn, crashing the real estate market. We were concerned that our retirement savings wouldn’t see us through, so we began looking overseas for a place where our ever-shrinking nest egg might last longer.
