expat udon thani the road to retirement


its a serious question with more serious consciences if you get it wrong that's providing you make it to retirement in issan
aim writing this from a prospective of after turning 41 and in the recent year losing some friends and family at still quiet young ages

it seems my plans to retire in udon thani could come undone at the hands of fate the sensible answer to the above question is as soon as possible if you ask me but who aim i to give advise
certainly i don't wont to be old and run down what i finally call it a day
we spend are lives trying to amass a nice little nest egg to survive the ravages of old age is it worth the struggle our would it be better to let the welfare state take the burden like so many do in the west

i guess it comes down to self respect having travelled in many reactively poor countries and seen honest hard working people struggle day to day to survive i feel lucky to have the ability to knuckle down and work hard knowing that the fruits of my labour will pay of one day

over the next few years iam going to set myself a target and work towards it life as a expat is my reason to go down the investment and saving path as i fear the uk state pension will collapse over time
and being overseas in udon thani our elsewhere with no cash flow could turn a dream into a nightmare at the wrong age even at 41 i see my opportunities for work in the west slowly drying up in my sector it looks like some tough choices and a lifestyle change could be in the pipeline
