I am an American who decided to move to Europe after retirement. The initial plan was to open B&B. This plan is not working well now during the pandemic. Or maybe it was too ambitious for a single woman My new plan is a nice and quiet retirement with a good friend - walking outside traveling and enjoying life. My research showed that the easiest to get a long-term visa for retired Americans is in France. So, I am looking for a friend in France. But I can consider other European countries. Clearly, I only speak English for the moment. But I am financially independent.
