Hi we are new to this site. We are taking early retirement soon, both teachers and want to retire abroard - not really sure where yet but either France, Spain or Canada.

If anyone has any advice re overall advantages and disadvantages of retiring abroard we would be grateful especially in terms of house prices, medical facilities, living expenses, banking and accessing UK pensions.

We have put separate posts on the Europe and Canada forums to ask for advice.

So glad we have this site to help us.
