So lately I've been thinking a lot about retirement, and I have decided I am going to retire outside Canada. I don't want to retire here not because it isn't a lovely country, because it is, but mainly because I don't want to live a normalish life for the rest of my retired life. I want to live lavishly. And that can be done easily by living in South America, Asia or Africa. I have first hand experience with Africa more especially Southern Africa so I've decided it is going to be Namibia. Namibia is not only safe, they have good health care, a good policing system, good economy (knock on wood it stays that way) and are generally a successful country when compared to other African countries. Add to that that 1 CAD right now is worth 12.33 Namibian dollars and you see why I want to move there. I will live like a king. I have also decided I am looking to retire around 55, not 65. So, how about you guys, I know some of us (I'm lookin' at you @Dyre Straits ) are already retired, but for those of us who haven't retired yet, where do you want to retire to, and why? Also, are you on track for retirement? And if not are you in the process of making the necessary corrections to be so? Also btw, you can be as vague as you like when answering these questions if at all you choose to answer them.
