I knew Ecuador was going to come up. I find that almost confusing, though. It's never seemed like as much of an obvious place to me like Australia, Spain, or Mexico does.

When I was still living in the U.S. in the late 90's and began considering emigrating, I cannot recall Ecuador as crossing the retirement radar often at all.

Upon reading the links I did have to scratch my head when seeing Cyprus ranking above Portugal. I have lived in both places. My vote would have put Cyprus very far below Portugal, which probably simply demonstrates "different strokes for different folks."

I can't understand the American obsession with Germany. You'd think they'd choose UK.

When you ask people where they would like to move for work, you get a different response. The UK is the most popular response from American workers.

Great info there.

I'm a little surprised that the Baltic States weren't in there. (Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia) There's been a significant trend towards investing there as the economies are outpacing those of Europe.

And I guess some people enjoy cold weather.

Kazakhstan? Really? I didn't see that one coming.

Most American's are clueless when it comes to other countries. One of my sisters and her family moved to Germany a few years ago. They didn't last long when they discovered that Germany is a major nanny state that isn't really a free country when you look closely.

Curreently, a much, much lower cost of living in Germany, lower than UK and even lower than USA. My step-daughter lives in Germany, and it is amazing how well she can live on little.

Islamic countries are very attractive. Ex-pats do their homework, instead of blindly ranting with hatred, and they know that the Muslims are very welcoming hosts to visitors in their countries, and do not discriminate against infidels nor make life difficult for them.
