Americans can be found all over the world. We aren't afraid to visit any country. Even recently we had a trio of hikers found on the Afghanistan and Iran border (they were arrested).
After visiting over 20 countries around the world there was always something apparent. Somewhere in that country an American was retired or just chose to live there.
Many of them men were brought to the countries through the military or a private industry. Many were also drawn there in seeking marriage. I even found an older couple from San Diego, CA choosing to retire in the Philippines because everything was so much cheaper.
This seed I've posted is in support of the thought that there are still nice places to visit and settle in AMERICA. I encourage you to don't give up on her just yet. Enjoy!
