Good bye to retirement in Paris

I started this blog back in 2011 with determination and high hopes that I could create a 5 year plan that would enable me to relocate to Paris upon my retirement in 2016.

After researching the subject for several years it became overwhelming clear that I would not be able to accomplish my goal. I came to the conclusion that sadly, for me, it would not be possible to live in Paris on a small fixed income derived mostly from social security.

The cost of living is very high in Paris and the paperwork to live as an expat is a bit more than I care to tackle.

What I am looking for is a place where I can live BETTER than I live here in the U.S for less money.

So, with that, I say good bye to my Paris blog. I will not make any new posts but will leave what I have researched for those who follow.

BTW - don't be sad for me because as the old saying goes
"when one door closes another opens"

Our new retirement location is Costa Rica.

We are very excited about the move and beginning a new life in a beautiful country, with a slower pace of life.

Of course I have a new blog about our move there in 2016

If you are interested you can find me there The Aspiring Expats

See you there!

The Eiffel Tower gets a glass floor

The Eiffel Tower was Erected in 1889 for the World Fair.  The iron-lattice tower is the world's most-visited paying attraction.

The millions of tourists who flock to the Eiffel Tower will be treated to a new glass floor, creating a sensation of walking on air nearly 200 feet above ground. The $37.5 million reconstruction is likely to become a prime location for “selfies,” with the first visitors spending time on the floor turning their phones towards themselves and the glass floor below. --Thea Breite 

Story and lots of photos here!

Black Atlas in Paris

I recently came across a site which in conjunction with American Airlines sponsors a website called Black Atlas. BlackAtlas was created as a platform to bring together and share the unique cultural perspectives of the African-American community in a meaningful and relevant way. 

I think it is an excellent idea
