    Assuming you have a lot of money saved up or you have a good investment portfolio to sustain your quality of life...

    Where do you want to retire? And why that particular place?

    Why stick with just one place? Let your "home" take you to ports around the world!

    I couldn't agree more! Have been looking into this for a while. It pays to find a partner to retire with, cause most cruises are based on double occupancy.

    Any volunteers for two thousand and um....? :-)

    Definitely near the ocean - and not near a lot of people.

    The ocean is so peaceful to me . . .

    I'd like to own one home in the Northwest, just north of Seattle and one in the Carribean (St. Martin, US Virgin Islands). During hurricane season, I'd spend my time in the Northwest.

    I will move to a planned retirement city like Green Valley, AZ. Once you get to retirement age, you should be segregated from the rest of the population and not get in the way of younger, quicker people. I want to live in a place with lower speed limits to drive my big boat, slow car with a kleenex box in the back window and no one will care that my blinker is left on. I want to be in a place where there are large print libraries. A place where the only extra cable channels are the History Channel, AMC, and TV Land. Restaurants will have early bird specials all the time. Every parking spot will be handicap and close to the front door. Malls will have more chairs in the food court to hang jackets while doing pre opening mall walks. McDonalds will only have senior coffees. Jitterbug! It will truly be my golden years.

    If I'm partnered- Boise, Idaho or Boston.

    If I'm single- Miami so I can easily travel to SA or NYC.

    I give honourable mention to Sedona, AZ. Kudos to whomever mentioned that town.

    first:
    my work will not be simply an agent utilized to make money.
    it will be the agent by which I labor to make healthy changes in some aspect of the quality of life and ground me both cognitive and behavioral growth.

    second:
    when the time has come to relinquish a bit of those responsibilities and begin to focus more on what I've done, where I've been, and how I've managed to live that long ... I would like the setting for such thoughts to be in a village in Switzerland. I would like to then focus my complaints on how expensive milk has become for, by then, I may be in Hawaii. if I am in love, then I will be with him. I will be wherever we both feel it's right to be.

    I'd never want to retire. icon_smile.gif
    I'd never want to stop designing, so until I die, whether it's here or there, I wanna die sketching.

    Africa

    I've only been to Kenya and Uganda so far, so I am biased towards Uganda, as it is the most beautiful country that I have ever been to with the most amazing people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

    However, there is much left to be discovered by myself on that continent, so I will have to settle for a TBA. But... Africa, in general... and specifically... TBA.

    But I won't ever retire. I'll be writing till the day I die. So, I'll just die there.

    I would never have thought to hear someone gay mention Boise as a place they desire to move to permanently, but in actuality it would be a lovely city to retire in. Great restaurants, lots of places to get a great beer or a great wine and just relax, good people (and if you're retired it's just about the right size; not too big, not too small), right next to a ski resort, in a beautiful area--definitely a great place to be. Sometimes I actually miss Boise.

    I don't foresee myself retiring, but if I do I would want two places. I'd probably like a place either in Portland, Seattle, or DC, and a place in tiny Stanley, Idaho. It's among my most favorite places in all the world. It's nestled in the incredible Sawtooth Mountains, with great hiking and awesome backcountry snowboarding (just have to commit to snowshoeing with a board on your back, but it's worth it), and is a very comfortable little place to be for periods of time. I just love Stanley.

    I would split between Paris and Ann Arbor.

    Paris - because it’s Paris.

    Ann Arbor - My hometown. No place like it. I lived there long enough for my blood to change from red to maize and blue.
