I have just returned from Phnom Penh for a 3 week holiday to see my fiancee and after my umpteenth visit i have called it a day and have decided to call Cambodia home as of next year.
I knew after my virst visit 7 years ago that somedat i would call this cohntry home and now that day has come!
My love for this place has increased year after year to such an extent that i could not delay any longer..
Having met my Cambodian partner and owning a property in Phnom Penh has made the deciscion easier also and certainly the fact that i turn 65 this year and therefore can offically stop workibg is a major factor.
I will not burn my bridges behind,it us imperative to stay in the healthsystem in my opinion,therefore to stay 6 months at a time seems a good start.
My partner is actively involved in 2 orphanages of which one is Hiv/aids and we both are passionately committed to those;so retirement is not really for me..
There are many people on this forum who live Cambodia and its people just as mucv as i do.....to then i ask the question.......
Have you ever considered settljng in Cambodia,wether temporarily or permanent.
Would you gave any doubts if yoh vould manage,FINANCIAL OR OTHERWISE.
For me personaly,the only stickinpoint(forgive the pun) is the HUMIDITY,but knly marginal.
