I'm at that age when I am thinking about retirement. Not so much from reading and writing about recreation and tourism, but certainly from full time teaching and the administrative stuff I have to do as chair.
I discovered this site a few years ago and am on the mailing list. We have talked about retiring out of the US so this resource is valuable. The are specific forums on dozens of countries. City and Country guides are also found. Information on costs, insurance moving expenses are all covered.
In the meantime, I travel, to learn more about our wonderful world.
So to learn about places for retirement, check out the expat forum.
