This would be my fantasy retirement. To me this sounds like a delightful way to spend the next 40 years.

I would love to be near a beach. But Michigan is my home, so I will retire here, and vacation at the beaches in Florida.

I will probably retire in 2020-2021 and intend to live between Colombia and central Florida. Part of the advantages of living in Colombia (my wife's home country) is that the cost of living is much less than the US and so is health insurance. We own a home in both countries so that helps a lot although rent in Colombia is very reasonable in most parts of the country.
