If there's one place in this world you would want to retire when you get older where would that be? For me, i'm thinking of a beachfront house somewhere in the Caribbean or Monte Carlo. It's just wishful thinking but i think it's a great way to relieve some stress in our busy lives. I live in the Philippines where there a lots of beautiful beaches in our country. Maybe i'll settle in on of those when i'm old hehe. What would you guys want to retire?

Here is my wishful thinking. If ever I would have the possibility, my ideal choice to live when I retire would be Switzerland. I have been there twice, and I am so impressed with the natural sceneries all over the country. It would be so pleasant all the year round.

I like Switzerland. I've been to Lucerne once and i liked the scenery. I went there around April but it's still a bit cold.

I would like to retire to a beach side bungalow by a tropical beach. There would be coconut palms in my garden and I would have a sea view. Really due to my disabled son I might have to stay in my home country and it has a temperate climate. My son is in a wheelchair and I don''t know how independent he will be as an adult. I hope to visit the Philippines for some island hopping and snorkeling. I am very keen on visiting different countries in the world.

I think you will be blessed for taking good care of you disabled son. I hope you can fulfill your dream bungalow on a tropical island. I hope your son will be able to grow as an independent human being.

When I was younger I lived close to Kentucky Lake in the US. I went fishing almost every day except during the winter months. I married a physician who had a share in a cabin on the lake and I still think that area is the most beautiful place in the world. Over the years, I've moved around quite a bit. Have been in Texas, down around the Louisiana bayous, in Tennessee, Georgia, Indiana and Kentucky. Of all of them, I'd still prefer the Kentucky Lake area. Louisiana would be a close second choice.

Men! I'd love to have a cabin by the lake. I can imagine swimming, fishing, bbq at night etc. You're very lucky.

I would like a place at the Caribbean, as long as I have the money to travel and come see my family once in awhile. But all that is just for the sake of answering your post. I am retired, I live in the same house I´ve always lived and I have strenght enough just for remodeling it bit by bit once in a while and to travel once in a year for vacations. I still think that I´d like to spend the worst of the winter at a warmer place.

Go to the philippines or other tropical countries during your winter it's warm all year long. My idea of retiring in the caribbean was also a wishful thinking. Even if you have lots of money, I know it's quite difficult to leave your home; where you have lived for a very long time; and go a foreign island. Thanks for answering though.

I used to think I wanted to retire up in the woods in a log cabin. But after going in a few I definately have changed my mind. Now I would love to live here for six months then go live six months with my daughter in Arizona!

I like to retire somewhere in Europe... maybe in Barcelona or in Ireland. I like somewhere wherein the place is just relaxing and I can let time pass by... :)
