We all retire eventually.....For me I would love to have a small farm where I can grow my vegetables and have animals etc. This would be a perfect retirement for me! What is your ideal retirement situation?

If retiring means , doing your mind, letting loose, enjoy life to the fullest and living happily then I am doing that right now! So, does that mean I have retired? Am not sure, because we might retire from our profession but never from life! My life has reached a stage where I am pretty much settled but still I want to do something for the children and old people and live a very simple life in a small house amidst greens. How lovely would that be!!

Well that time is a little far off right now. But it will be here before I know it. I would just like to live a peaceful existence and live out my years with grandchildren if I can.

Some people they do plan early for thier retirements! And everybody have thier ideas especially those who works hard.... And I wish you all the best for yours and I'm sure you will have a lot of years with your grand childrens. By the way it's a long way away for me too. Thank you so much for your response.

Lol, I think this is one my first discussions here and it's only now that I'm getting some momentum. I wish that you can save much money as you need to enjoy traveling the world with your lovely wife.

well for me i guess i will never get a retirement for i am a stay home mom and the work at home is what a lifetime work for me. But i have a sometime story that deals about retired person which they are close to me. He was retired 2 years ago and now they are in a problem of financial because they never invest their money instead the money was used for their maintenance of medicine. They never waste the money for any useless thing but saving their life everyday they thing that it is a waste of money.

Hi patzel! I'm sorry for the late reply, I probably didn't see it. Sometimes we don't really know what's gonna happen in the future or when reached that age, but I think to have a plan will help a bit. I hope for this person to get well and thank you so much for the response.

Well, for me it would depend on where my husband plans to settle. I can't take a decision of my own in this matter...or we will end up in two different places. I think the ideal place for both of us would be a cool, hilly place...somewhere like a tea planatation..or something like that.

I think Husband and I would have different place to be in our retirement, lol. But we talked about it and will worry about it when it comes. I wish that you've got to live in the ideal place for you when the time comes. Thanks, SViswan.

Ideal retirement would be a house as close to the wilderness. A water body nearby, lovel weather, not too hot or cold, and close to a remote village, where i can also spend time in trying to help and educate people there especially the children.

Hi CJay, On retirement, didn’t think about the same till and thanks for the remembrance. I think it is away, may be not so far (lol). Now I am thinking what will do after retirement. Can’t get an answer dear (lol). Must be busy with grandchildren… how is it? Otherwise it will be really boring, nothing to do.. what is your opinion. Better not to think much, let the time come .. I hope we can enjoy with the time. I wish to settle at our native place. Take care dear.

Hi Sreekala! The sounds of being busy with grandchildren sounds great already. It may be a good thing that its still away, so maybe we can plan it better or like you said, let the time come and go from there. Thank you, dear, and you take care also.

If given a chance i would love to live again on my hometown Province.I love to live with simple life.The simple life of people in the Province that i misses so much.The fresh air,fresh vegetables that surrounds our house and animals that roaming around.But unfortunately this simple life in my province is already influences by the city life where people are mostly experience life in the city.

Hi dong! I understand what you mean on living a simple life in a province. I have been in my father's province once and yes the life there is very simple, but full of fun and very relaxing. That would be a nice place for retirement and I hope that you get that chance. Thanks, dong.
