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
Hi Silversurfers, for ladies born in 1950's who've been subject to the state pension age increase from 60 to 65/66 why don't you join our group WASPI (check it out on Google) we are trying to get the government to think again and make transitional payments to women affected so suddenly. We are in the throes of taking legal action so it is a real possibility that we might be compensated but the more of us there are the more likely this will happen. 1000's of women are already taking action be one of them.
