Outsourcing my retirement


As soon as "Riverbend" is sold I'll outsource my retirement to Bali. It's almost like the India in this video clip but without the elephants.
And this is the place I've chosen to retire in:


A small hotel with just four exquisitely appointed bungalows which can be rented for a whole year for less than the annual upkeep of "Riverbend" - and, yes, that includes breakfast! I may even rent all four for total privacy ☺

Let's see what happens. All I know about the future is that it will be different. "Everything will be alright in the end. So if it's not alright, it is not yet the end."

If you want to retire in Bali, then you must read this e-book:

The book covers all aspects of moving and retiring in Bali, to help you plan your move and avoid costly mistakes. It gives an honest account of all of the positive and negative aspects of living in Bali. Living in Bali is not always a bed of roses and the guide will help you to prepare for problems you are likely to face in Bali.

Not only does the book include the essential information on visas, insurance, shipping companies, medical care and property, but it also includes interviews with expats who have already retired in Bali. Their stories and advice are an invaluable source of information.

Retiring in Bali is not just about warm weather and a low cost of living, Bali has a rich and fascinating culture. The religion is strongly intertwined with daily life. Bali has a very strong community life and Balinese are welcoming to newcomers. For people that get involved in village life, you just cannot help to be touched by the people and have a deeply rewarding experience.

The book should put your mind at ease, as it answers many of the typical concerns people have about retiring in Bali, such as visas, finding medical insurance, health care, cost of living, dealing with the government and police, safety and buying or renting property.
