If I were to leave Mexico, I'm thinking Portugal. Why? I liked it there when we visited. I grew up in Brazil, so it is the mother country. Cost of living is reasonable.

OTOH, there are many places we can afford to live, so if we decided to move we would look at a variety of places. I would probably rule in places where I speak the language, which is all of Latin America, most of Southern Europe, the USA and Britain and some countries in Africa that were colonized by Portugal and where they still speak Portuguese.

For us, it's not being too far from our kids/new grandson/future grandchildren. While we aren't the type to feel like we need to live in the same town (and yes, I have friends who have followed their children to live near them) - I would have to rule out a foreign country right now because of this.

We are spending more and more time in Florida in the winter, but I wouldn't live there full time, either.

I love being able to live in more than one place and vacation in lots of others.
