Hey guys and gals, where do you want to live, work, and retire? I realize it's three different questions, but for some people there just one answer to all three... 2pac, for example, wanted to live and die in LA.

I have lived on 3 continents, and my list looks like this:

1) Life - EU (maybe Finland, I like their saunas)
2) Work - US hands down, maybe China coz there's a lot going on there
3) Retirement - an island in Mexico, surrounded by cocktails, bonitas, and the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico

Do you have one place for all three? Maybe it's Thailand or China? Or maybe... Iran, who knows? Share your thoughts Wink

Life  - planet Earth
Work - planet Earth
Retirement - I hope different planet. but your description of Mexico is very nice and makes me to consider this option))) By the way, this is a good point to share gorgeous places for potential retirement. Do u know anything else? Smile

1) Life - EU (maybe Finland, I like their saunas)  HELL YES
2) Work - US hands down, maybe China coz there's a lot going on there China is a good shout, growing market. (Still)
3) Retirement - an island in Mexico, surrounded by cocktails, bonitas, and the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This too. Though a nice hamlet in the EU with vinyards etc seems like a good retirement place.

1) Life - London
2) Work - Beijing

I knew there would be someone who'd want to work in China!!! You must have experienced living in that countrySmile

What's so nice about South Portugal? I've always wanted to check out Portugal, but haven't done that yet... Heard they have good surfing!

Work in Finland, i.e. 4 hours/day?Smile)) But seriously, I know that Nordic countries have strong work ethic AND good working conditions. Good choice!

I really like Thailand. Cocktails, Thai bonitas, and the warm waters of Andaman sea...

Czech Republic is also nice, but I guess if you're not Czech you won't really be welcome there. Tell if I am wrongSmile

You're right, I'm definitely not Czech and don't consider EU as the last location) just want to find a quiet place with beach, sun, sea and internet Biggrin   Unfortunately I don't know such places.Thailand is full of tourists. Any other options?))

Good thread, I like the questions.

1) Nashville
2) California, several places could be good.
3) Somewhere quiet in Europe, like Finland or Norway.
