Discover your ideal retirement location

Imagine your ideal retirement… can you feel the sand between your toes? Are you drenched in culture sipping a cappuccino in a cafe? Or for you, is there really no place like home?

It’s been a long time coming but the finish line is almost in sight. After years of working hard, your freedom is just around the corner. No more being a slave to the alarm clock or living for the weekend. Retirement is your chance to relax, tick a few things off the bucket list and do whatever you want to do. It could even be time for a change of scenery.

As retirement approaches you might find yourself wondering if the grass is greener elsewhere. Some people see stopping work as an opportunity to change their lifestyle, seeking out space, peace or a greater choice of things to do with their time. Others look forward to spending quality time in their own home close to family and friends.

Of course, where you actually choose to retire to, is a very personal decision based on lots of different factors like your interest, tastes and circumstances but you can have a bit of fun while you’re dreaming about where your ideal retirement spot might be.

So for a bit of light relief from the serious job of planning for the future, take this quick quiz to discover where destiny may take you in your retirement years. You might just be inspired.
