Why We Chose Slow Long-Term Travel Instead of a Permanent Expat Move

When we first started our early retirement, we thought we wanted to travel full-time and maybe even take up residence in a new country as expats. But as we thought about it more, we realized that's not exactly what we wanted. We still wanted to travel long-term, but we didn't want to give up our residency in our home country. This video is all about how we balance our long-term travels while maintaining our home country residency in Canada.
