The HH and I may just be slightly into our 5th decade, but we are looking forward toward retirement. Each time we travel, the thought “Could this be a good place for us to retire?” is in our minds. Of course, I have a dream of having a mini farm that is as self-sufficient as possible using green technologies. The thing is that Jim and I seem to always be drawn to Great Britain, in particular, Scotland.
If we choose to retire somewhere other than the U. S., from a financial stand point, it would be much more cost effective to go somewhere like Belize. We actually checked this out a couple of years back when we made a trip there. While we really enjoyed Belize and other places we have gone so far, the only place that seems to continue to call to us is Scotland.
I don’t know where we will retire or when we will retire; there is so much in the future that could change whatever plans we might even think we have. The HH and I are still a long way from reaching our financial goals for retirement, but we at least have goals in sight and are making progress.
Have you started retirement planning? Do you have any thoughts of advice?
Have a blessed and happy day!
