In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age of 38. Now, into their 3rd decade of this financially independent lifestyle, they invite you to take advantage of their wisdom and experience.

There are so many places to retire to outside the US, as you have already done, and for many retirees, that is an eye-opener. Your book reinforced this.
