In about 20 years I will have 6 million - 8 million dollars saved up and will quit 'working'. I plan to sell Chez Say and move to different parts of the world and live for a year and then move to a different part of the world, rinse repeat, etc.
I think this makes sense at many levels:
1) I currently live in the same neighborhood that She Say and I grew up in. I like where I live and have many family and friend connections, but it is the BORING suburbs of Washington, DC. Spending my retirement years in different locations will let me experience different places after having spent the first 55 years of my life in one place.
2) My 3 kids will be excited to come visit me and She Say. If I simply moved to a beachfront chateau the kids might be interested in visiting for a few years, but then it would become 'old hat' pretty quickly. By moving around the globe every year they will be provided with free lodging at different great places. I should have enough to also pay for them and their family's airfare.
So, my questions are:
1) What do you guys (gals) think about this plan?
2) Given that I will have about 20 - 30K for rent each year, where do you recommend I move to? My plan is to jump from the USofA one year to international every other year...I'm thinking maybe an urban city every 2 years followed by a country/rural area every third year.
All thoughts are welcome. Once we figure out where I should live, we can get to work on what I should wear while living there.
