Have you ever dreamed of uprooting your life and starting over in a new city? How about a new country? Although most of us daydream about doing this, what we don’t realize is that it’s possible. Even the first step of quitting your job might keep you tied to a place where the rent is high. However, more and more people are working remotely and able to live in the country of their wildest dreams. Not only that, but some places are so affordable to live that you could feasibly live off your savings for a while.



How many of your friends have gone on vacation to Indonesia? You might have even gone yourself, but have you ever thought about living there? Bali's reputation as one of the most beautiful islands in the world is a sound one. So much so, that even the idea of living here sounds like a dream. But it's a dream that can come true. With stunning, tropical beaches and friendly locals that have a laid-back way of life, it's hard to find anywhere quite like Bali or Indonesia in general. Not when you can live there on a modest $1,600 a month.
