Hi I have just found this forum and wanted to introduce myself, I am certainly thinking of retiring soon (46 now) and looking for as much insight and information as possible on it !! I am living + working full time in Asia in the Oil business and also will retire here, I expect my retirement costs may be less than you guys in the West but glad for all info !! thanks

Thanks I appreciate it, I may have a go at retirement next year if I feel I have enough saved - I took a 6 month sabbatical last year and actually got a bit bored !! (poor planning) So i'm back at work now for perhaps another 6 months or so - then maybe go for it and look to work part time if possible.
I hear you Dan, I am still working and enjoying it actually - 35 days work 35 days off so I think I may be able to suffer this gruelling rotation for a bit longer. I am now thinking of working till I am 50 and concentrate more on my hobby (diving)
