    Re: Retire Anywhere in World -Where and Why

    I LOVE San Diego. Different strokes. I would never want to live in the U.S. Southeast. I already have a few affordable senior apartments near public transportation and less than five miles from the Pacific scoped out.

    But if money were not much of an object, then a little house in Maui. Or near Kona. (Healthcare is better in Hawaii than here.)

    Anywhere in the world, if I could be employed and a citizen for awhile before retiring? France. Either Lyon, or somewhere in Alsace. I speak the language fluently and know the culture very well. And healthcare is ideal. I also know a lot -- well over 250 -- of people in France (former students of mine).

    I can understand that. I have a friend in Phoenix that I usually visit every winter. I love Sedona!

    Send me a note next time you're coming to town - maybe we can meet for a cup of coffee!

    I love Sedona, too. Hubby and I went there this past summer to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary.

    I'm now thinking Australia so I can have health care.

    Now I'm thinking either Greece or Italy. I've never been overseas, but I would love to at least visit France, England, Ireland, Germany, Spain and definitely both Italy and Greece. After I saw the movie "Mama Mia" I really wanted to go straight to Greece. Somewhere on the coast.

    Whever I go I must have cats and at least one dog. And internet access. And unlimited funds. **sigh**
    I enjoy the escapism of reality television. Beats the heck out of worrying about your REAL life!!

    Since money is no problem....I'd rent a condo in the winter near my sister in Miami Beach...spend April, May and June near Sacramento CA close to 2 of my sons. Then July thru October off to my oldest son in San Diego..but I'd rent a condo on the beach in San Diego......funny I was thinking about this earlier today...

    Jasper, Alberta, Canada for the summers, and Greece for the winters.

    Vacations everywhere else.
