What these roving retirees have discovered is that you can explore the world—traveling as slow or as fast as you like—often for less than the cost of staying at home. You can make it up as you go along, heading to whatever European city or Southeast-Asian foodie hot-spot that the next low-cost flight takes you to. Or start by creating an itinerary to match your bucket lists.

Many folks use their roaming adventures as a way to find their favorite spot for a full-time overseas retirement.
