I am a semi retired Management Consultant with plans to live abroad. I can't explain why I chose Viet Nam but perhaps it is my experience with Vietnamese people I have met in Canada as well as the cost of living in Canada that has made it difficult to enjoy my former way of life. I am single at sixty seven years of age and I am in excellent health.
I am excited at the prospect and have done some research but have to do more. I would like to find work if it is available in order to keep busy and learn the culture and language faster. My plan is to learn the language before I leave. I will vacation there for a month or two before moving permanently. I can only reside outside Canada for 6 months and must return in order to maintain my Canada Pension and Old Age Security.
I am very interested in meeting expats from Canada or the U.S. since we have similar interests and ways of living. Thank you in advance to anyone who will take time to give me information that I can begin to assemble so that I can make a better decision. I have forty years of retail experience and hope to find a job consulting or perhaps even working in the Home Furnishings Industry if it exists.
