what i can say to you all is that your job dictates in where you live not you!!!

I mean, when u are retired, and a job no longer ties u.

In that case, that's true, but I don't think I would like to live in that kind of countries to be honest.
Although USA and Canada are much cheaper already. The prices of cars and houses here in the Netherlands is really not normal.

Till about two years ago, I was pretty clear about where I would like to be in the future but then not so anymore. At the moment, I don't know where I would like to be next year so I can't really think much of the future. I just know where I want to be now, in the present. Of course there is a list of countries that I would have liked to visit sometime in the future but that's about it.

I usually have some pretty definite short-term plans (travel, moving, big purchases), but the 5-10 year plan is always pretty fuzzy. I've come to realize that life thows you things you didn't expect, so it's best to keep a open mind. That said, I tend to fret a little about things that I haven't much control over, nonetheless.

Nicely put, Tina... That is one of the lessons that I have learnt of life too and I used to be such a planner and still that habit sometimes gets the better of me.

I'm trying to work out what to do when I have responsiblities, what's wrong with having them in an exotic location?

Do u ever consider what u will do, when u are older, and free of responsibilities, of work, children etc.

Will u move to an exotic location, or wil u live in your own country?

Mel

Actually my big plans for life is to move back to my own country to retire while getting permanent residency for some place with better wages than at home and travel/save on this income. so its like ill have my home base in Singapore/HK/Taiwan and then travel from these places while going back home to breakaway from big city life when i need the tranquility....

well, i do always think of living somewhere else except in Asia. I do fed up living in Asia, especially in South Asia, the place where I'm living now. The economic growth is getting faster which I don't like it much. Just in my place, everywhere is Casino! Casino! Casino! It's true that attracts lot of visitors but also attracts lots of social problems!!

I hope in the future I can live in somewhere else, somewhere can easily access to another country!! I like somewhere is free, romantic, not complicated, all the people are nice (i know it's impossible), somewhere I could do what I like and somewhere makes me feel safe!!

But in my mind, I think I wish I could have property in lots of country, so that I can stay in one country for a while then moved to another. That's my ideal life!

That depends, for me, on what the responsibilities are.
For example, my daughter. I want her to go to school, in a country where we have made and are making significant progress, towards the goal of gender equality.
