Affordability is one of the most persistent questions asked by expats around the world. If you’re thinking of moving abroad, you’ve probably had your doubts as to whether your budget is up to the transition. This week, we take a look at whether Switzerland is too expensive to live in, where you should move to in Belgium, and why it really is possible to afford the best of French country life.We’ve been talking to people all around the world about their experiences of expat life this week: Kris & Joel in Costa Rica, Amy in Peru, Rossella in Switzerland, Vanessa in Croatia and Colleen in Azerbaijan all share stories of their lives.
Our columnists have been busy this week too: June Finnigan tells us about September in Tuscany; Meredith discusses how to find an apartment in Germany; and Kathleen Peddicord talks about retirement overseas.
