Welcome to Our International Living Community

Congratulations and welcome to International Living. You’re now part of a friendly community of like-minded folks who are interested in the many opportunities available overseas today to travel smarter, live better, retire sooner, invest for profit, and do it all even with a modest nest egg.

In the world’s best-value destinations, you can live better than you do now…for less than it costs you to stay home. On a budget from around $1,900 a month (even less in some spots), a couple can enjoy a truly comfortable lifestyle—eating out, maybe even employing a housekeeper and gardener, traveling.

Since 1979, here at International Living we’ve been pointing our members to the destinations most worth their attention in Latin America, Europe, and Southeast Asia. Because when you know where to go, you’ll find that you can enjoy a whole host of benefits, including low cost but very high quality healthcare, good-value real estate, a remarkably low cost of living, and a pace of life that’s slow and civil.

Follow the four steps below to start your journey to a happier, healthier, more affordable life overseas.

Step 2: Take Our Survey, Please—So We Know What You’re Most Interested in

Please go here to take our quick survey. 

Because we want to be sure the stories we bring you are answering your questions and focused on the places and regions you’re most interested in, we need you to tell us a little bit about what you’re looking for. Thanks!

Step 3: Check Out Our YouTube Channel

It’s one thing to read about the places and solutions we recommend—to hear directly from expats in their own words what life is like in the places where they live. But you can come away with a whole new appreciation for life abroad when you see it for yourself.

And that’s why our videos are worth your attention. You’ll hear from folks like you who have already made the move—showing you where they live, answering your questions, giving you a sense for what day-to-day life is really like. They’ll share with you ideas about what you should—and shouldn’t do—to help you smooth your own adventure abroad.

Step 4: Access Your Free Sample Issue of IL Magazine

We’ll send you our IL Postcards every day to introduce you to the world of opportunity available to you overseas today. But you should know: That’s really just the start of the story.

When you upgrade to become a member of International Living, one of the benefits of membership is our monthly magazine. You can read through a sample issue, here. Each month, we bring you in-depth coverage of destinations, contacts and recommendations to help you live and travel better overseas, explorations of new places, solution-oriented pieces, in-depth real estate coverage to point you to markets where values are great and strategies you should know to save you trouble and money, on-the-ground stories from expats, and more.
