Your Future, Your Dreams: How to Retire Anywhere in the World

Your Future, Your Dreams: How to Retire Anywhere in the World
What are you going to do when you retire?

Sure, the idea of not going to the same job day after day is appealing, but what are you actually going to do?

Many of us live a fairly stationary life, creating a home base and not wandering too far for very long. But after retirement, new options appear on the horizon. You have the freedom to wander and see all of the beautiful worldly locations you never got to explore as much as you wanted, living in a world of deadlines and limited paid time off.

More and more Americans are retiring abroad and are intrigued by the prospect of a new life. A change in scenery and culture is just one of the many reasons people choose to retire overseas. Other common reasons include better weather, retiree incentives, a lower cost of living, or making a reality out of a dream. Regardless of the reason, leaving behind your old life can be scary but it can also be exhilarating.

Do you dream of waking up in time to watch the sunrise over a tropical beach?

Does the idea of re-establishing yourself on foreign shores sound more than a little exciting?

Have you spent your entire life wishing you could be somewhere else?

In Your Future, Your Dreams: How to Retire Anywhere in the World, author Angie Brimer walks you through all steps of retiring overseas, from the practicalities to the deeply conflicting emotions you may experience. In this book, you’ll learn how to outline a retirement plan. You’ll also learn about a variety of amazing countries that you can move to, and what’s required to make it work in a new location. In some places, you’ll be able to drastically elevate your standard of living and in other places, you’ll be so close to the ocean that you’ll taste the salt in the air.

Your post-retirement dreams of living overseas can come true. No matter where you choose to go, this book will show you how to create a home away from home. $0.99 on Kindle.

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver’s Paradise as a Father

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver's Paradise as a Father

When a midlife surprise upends his plans, will his dreams of exploration end…or begin anew?

Andrew Jalbert has always been an adventurer at heart. Drawn to the breathtaking island of Bonaire in his twenties, he transformed a passion for diving and natural beauty into a career as a writer and underwater photographer. But with goals to retire to the Caribbean paradise, he was unexpectedly gifted with fatherhood at age forty-three and the challenge of merging two seemingly incompatible lives.

Determined to pass on his appreciation for the dazzling theater of the sunshine and the artistry of undersea landscapes, Andrew annually took his son to the place he so loved. And over the course of their week-long excursion when the boy was five, the doting dad found the isle’s magic renewed by an insatiably curious child.

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver’s Paradise as a Father is the compelling story of a man who thought he’d enjoyed all of life’s pleasures only to find them enriched by parenthood. Told in lyrical prose, Andrew recounts both his early days exploring the island’s treasures and the wonders of his kindergartner’s fascination. Along the way, he relates the history and culture of Bonaire’s people, illuminates the critical need for conservation, and realizes life seen through the eyes of the young is among the greatest visions imaginable.

Back on Bonaire: Rediscovering Diver’s Paradise as a Father is an expertly woven travel memoir. If you like evocative descriptions, wisdom conveyed with humor, and educational asides, then you’ll adore Andrew Jalbert’s introduction to the tropics.

Kong Boys

Kong Boys

Seven Hong Kong boys. Thirty years of age. Eleven European Cities. One Summer. The enduring power of friendship disguised as a booze-soaked, contemplative travelogue.

Winner of 2020 Hollywood Book Festival

In summer 2006, twenty-year-old Gerald Yeung and his childhood friends from Hong Kong travel to South America and Africa on their parents’ dime. Confronted by challenges foreign to their privileged upbringing, the “Wannabe Backpackers” persevere in their Christian Dior clothes. They make plans to do it again when they turn thirty. The decade that follows doesn’t go exactly to plan. Gerald chases the American Dream in a town of twenty thousand and subzero winters. Others pursue a fast-and-furious life in Hong Kong. They all experience failed relationships, career setbacks, and a decreasing ability to impress girls at clubs. The summer of their thirtieth birthdays, they hit the road again to fulfill a lifelong dream — the 2016 UEFA European Championship. Set during European soccer’s most anticipated event, Kong Boys traces a friendship that transcends distance, culture, and time, dovetailing the different trajectories of seven boys in a decade of changes in Hong Kong. Kong Boys is a celebration of youth, brotherhood, and a sport of incomparable beauty. $0.99 on Kindle.
