It's ok having plans to move to another country and want to spend your retirement years in a more relaxed and sunny place. There is certainly nothing wrong with that after a life time spent working it's something to look forward to but, Always a but somewhere in the story. Sometimes things do not go quite as planned. All seems straight forward and then you find a list of things that have to be done before you can move onto your new life. as the list gets shorter now should be the time to start looking forward to the move. But not with me a most of the money to fund my dream must come from the sale of a house i now live in after my divorce. The divorce gave me some money but i have to sell a house before it's my turn to move.
