My parents did not leave me much, but they did bequeath citizenship that includes the right to live in the UK, the EU, or Canada if I wish. My right to live in the USA is my own, by birth.
That is a privilege, Josie. Just like U.S. citizenship. Good for you!

We've had happy feet since retiring so have moved around a lot but it's all been abroad. We were in Asia for awhile, then spent this last summer in Europe, and now back in Latin America to ride out the winter.

We'll probably come back to USA after a couple more years to try living there for a bit and see if it sticks.

Josie, rent is not expensive in London either, it’s ownership of properties are expensive. We go there often but we won’t move there. But my kids have dual citizenship and can move there anytime. London is always an exciting city.

Have considered Ecuador and Belize - though probably Belize will be overbuilt by the time I am ready to retire.

Boquete, Panama. Fairly large expatriate community. Great bakery ("Sugar and Spice"). A minimal retirement pension goes a long way.

If Trump is somehow re-elected, I'm definitely considering it.

I considered doing so when I didn't have enough wealth and wanted to retire early and live comfortably. I ended up working until I had enough to retire comfortably in the USA at a bit over 60 a few months ago.

I lived and worked overseas for a few years so I got to experience various nations and cultures. Countries I would consider retiring to include, Peru, Chile, Thailand, Philippines, Argentina, Spain, Hungary, and Georgia.

Now that I have grandkids in the USA, I wouldn't consider retiring outside the USA but would consider some extended time in a Spanish speaking country to live out our winter and improve Spanish language skills.

Yes I have dual Netherlands citizenship from when I was married to a Dutchman ( hence my "Dutchess" spelling here ) . We remain friends and I really would like to leave the US for good this time .
I was actually born on my family's ranch in Texas but have lived absolutely everywhere and while I am happy in Cal ,
I have been very sick for a couple of years now and need to get well in a more positive/supportive environment. Outside of SoCal , that would not be easy to find.
If I do leave , I will let my US citizenship go this time . I identify more with the/as a Dutch now .

Why would your U.S. citizenship be "let go"? It stays with you unless you renounce it.
