It's looking like I will be retiring in about six years, maybe a bit less. If it goes as planned my retirement income will 60-70K (USD) per year. I have a PH.D. and a long teaching career and might be able to do some work without losing too much of my retirement benefits. My husband is finishing up graduate school this semester and should be a licensed mental health professional in several more years. He's quite a bit younger and probably has about twenty or twenty-five more years in the work force ahead of him. That's the backgound. Neither of us is particularly interested in staying in the U.S. Our tastes, interests, and values are more European. He speaks only English but understands Spanish fairly well and could surely learn it. I speak Spanish well enough to carry on everyday life but carrying out my profession might be a stretch. With time perhaps... My health is complicated by Lyme disease (borreliosis) but generally good. Easy access to antibiotics is a plus. So all you guys out there, where are some desirable places where we might begin the next phase of our lives together? Priorities are a liberal social climate, moderate cost of living, and civilized amenities. Spain is one of my fantasies but it might be difficult to make work financially. Mexico is good for retirement but not for working. Neither of us likes really cold weather very much. Your thoughts and experiences are appreciated and I look forward to hearing from you. Dave P.S. to all you hypernationalistic jerks who will want to say "good riddance," I've lived, worked, taught, paid my takes, and paid my dues in a nation that takes it all and treats us as second class citizens, so STFU.
