That is so funny. And those people are tan and wrinkle-free, but with silver hair. Just the opposite of the rest of us who are wrinkled but dye our hair!


The magazine "International Living" is like that. But, it did give us the original idea to check out where we ended up retiring. Just take it all with a pound of salt!

It was about 10 years ago that we started looking and did read the magazine. Yes, it did lead to some place of interest and where we actually moved. Hard to give any credence to it though as they described Palmdale, CA as a "mountain enclave" where I would describe it as a "monstrous autoclave".

I think that was probably the one I looked at for awhile. That "pound of salt" thing was one of its biggest pluses as I realized that I was reading so much froth and PR, and I really was not getting tips and answers specific to my unglamorous situation and that the articles were short on nitty-gritty info. So, it was useful in grounding me and setting me off doing my own research.

And I did end up living abroad and in one of the glam areas, but on my budget and my terms.

I like where they interview retirees who give their likes and dislikes about their relocation area/town.


You can always learn more when listening to dislikes rather than listening to likes.
