Am I doing the right thing , by selling my selling where I live and putting around 45k , INTO A Turkish bANK aCCOUNT , TO LIVE ON AND RETIRE ?
Hi there and welcome to the Forum!
Only you can know if it's the right thing to do or not!
I would ask if you have visited the country before?
If so, speak to other expats you have met. If not, come and spend a few weeks or months to see if you like the life here.
Have you considered any other countries? Do the same for those.
Advice from me?
1) Don't rush.
2) Don't burn your bridges.
3) Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
4) Expect the unexpected.
Do come back and let us know how you are getting on!
