We've been researching where to retire, and it gets confusing. I was wondering where others have found to be the best place to retire? Safe, inexpensive, low cost of living, close healthcare facilities.
I just watched an interesting documentary called Minimalism. You can watch it by going to theminimalist.com and clicking on the link at the top. As I am already running a course called 'Make Yourself Happier, I found it interesting, particularly the part where it talks about living smaller. Loneliness is almost an epidemic in our age group, and I wanted to explore people's ideas about how we can live a more social/community based life. It is quite possible I will find myself alone in the future, and I certainly would not want to live an isolated life. Here's one thought to start the discussion. Suppose several of us decided to sell our properties and buy a much larger property together. Could it work?
Morning all! I have recently retired, and my husband is due to retire soon. I'm 61, hubby is a bit younger. We are considering retiring to Norfolk, a place we have visited many times and really love. Looking at all the factors to take into account: health-care, activities for older people etc, it's a bit of a minefield. Can any of you lovely people recommend anywhere that's good for our age-group? Thank you in anticipation!
I retired at a relatively young age, primarily from burn-out with job and was fortunate enough to have saved money to live off of real estate investments. I take care of our teenage son on a daily basis and my wife works full-time. My issue is what to do with the long days. I love the outdoors, but live in a large metropolitan, suburban area in the cold weather climate. Our dog is the best walked dog in the neighborhood. I used to love to ski, but now am not fond of the cold. My desire is to travel and see new places, but I can't travel yet. I read a lot, but need more. Tried painting, found it to be tedious. Most people my age work. Anyone else with similar experience?
I have started a blog around retirement and still have much to learn about the world of blogging. Does anyone else out there maintain a blog? I would like to share tips, advice and gentle critical feedback with other bloggers. If you want to check out my blog and let me know your thoughts , the address is https://johnretired.blogspot.co.uk
