We can help you find the perfect place to fit your retirement travel budget.  In Asia, the food is amazing, the cost of living is surprisingly inexpensive, and the culture is incredible. History abounds with ancient Buddhist temples. The winters here are perfect, and the summers are hot (reminds me of Arizona). Bottom line, you can easily afford to live here, even on a small Social Security check.
