    Not a chippy, a restaurant that had fish and chips on the menu. No idea what the fish was, but tasted pretty decent.

    Yes I've also travelled in China for business. My experience was that Chinese food in China, is nothing like the Chinese food that we eat outside of the country. My chicken soup literally had the chickens head and its feet in there.:eek:

    You appear to have a fantastic lifestyle that suits you! Do you ever get lonely?,you appear to have many friends but deep rooted is there a part of you that says "I miss a family life,?

    Yeah it will be the Phils but I hope to phase it with me cutting down the days I work and being allowed to work some of those days when I am out of the country (UK).

    Full retirement should be possible from about 4 years from now but really, I have to guess how long I will live to know when I can start to retire and I have to be very aware that any time earlier than 6 years from now I have to provide all the money myself.

    When I do hit state retirement age I hope to be living on 25-30 thousand a year after tax, so maybe some travel will be possible, but I will also be funding James and Janna at college so I won't be that well off :)

    Just in the lounge waiting for my flight back to the UK at 7:40 this morning, no sleep last night had to be up at 3:50am.

    Hope you had a good journey back to the UK.

    Your work skills are such that you may be able to do work from home when you are retired in Phils as well!

    I have noticed that is not quite so easy to work 5 days a week in my 60's.
    Sometimes I do 15 hour days and I cannot recover quickly as I could in my 50's o_O
    It is not good to work all the hours as before because it is important to be alive and around for the family.
