Right. I had to find Ms Kam a pair of sunglasses that guaranteed blocking 100% of UV light. In the end I got them for 100 baht from Amazon UK. Shipping 150 baht. Mostly what I saw in Bangkok was polarized sunglasses for around 7,000 baht.
I'm almost 50 and have some medical issues that aren't really solvable but make working difficult. If I wanted to quit working and coast until I was able to start collecting SS and drawing from my 401K how much liquid cash would I need in various countries to make it until 65?
If you have already spent time in another country, what's your take on it and would you choose differently now (and if so, why)? What's the best country in terms of affordability, safety, clean environment, taxes, visa duration, stable government, etc?
