Every day, we come closer to our retirement. You might still be young and trying to save for it. Or you might have just said goodbye to your colleagues as you spend your last day at work. If you are planning to have a different environment during your retirement, you may be considering spending it in another country. Here are some of the best places to retire:

Australia

Although some parts of the Land Down Under have been hit by floods in the past few weeks, Australia has a reputation of being an ideal place. The lifestyle in this country is very laid back while being close to nature. There several languages used in Australia but English remains to be the primary language.

Applying for a retirement visa though may be a bit tough and you need to prove that you have enough income and assets. Most retirees opt to purchase a home in New South Wales or in Victoria. Going through the visa hurdles will be well worth it.

Ooh, the flavor. And, oh my, the aroma. The wonderful food fare offered up in Santiago restaurants include so many different cultures. From European and North American to the ocean. Santiago restaurants offer its customers an opportunity to combine the flavor of the city with the flavor of the food. It doesn’t matter that Santiago is just another city in Chile. Not at all. This city is on the verge of something big and it has everything to do with the atmosphere, the friendly residents and the wonderful food that can only be found in Santiago restaurants.

Looking for something nice, Santiago restaurants that are some of the best in the city? Then try Madro Al or Mare Nostrum. Both of these Santiago restaurants offer a South American or Spanish flavor. When in Santiago, you should try a little of everything at the Santiago restaurants. They have restaurants for all budgets and all tastes, but what is the point of going somewhere different if everything you do is going to be the same?

A big city starts its developpment on a river(there are a few exceptions). Then the developpment goes separately on the two banks of the river, until everybody sees: we need bridges. It is impossible to imagine Paris without Seineb and the bridges, London without Thames and its bridges. The Golden Gate bridge is more famous in my opinion than the city of San Francisco. Bridges are not only masterpieces of building art and architecture, but also landmarks of cities and their culture.

In my opinion, the following bridges are world’s most famous.

1. Golden Gate bridge from San Francisco. Build in 1937, this bridge is fascinanting. Most everyone in the world can recognize it.

2. Sydney Harbor Bridge is a landmark of Sydney and all Australia. It was build in 1932 containing 6 millions of hand driven rivets. It has huge hinges due to the hot Sydney sun. The painted surface is equal to 6 football fields.

All you need to do is to browse the net for just a few minutes to find out how popular hitchhiking is even today. Of course, there are different kinds of people who take to hitchhiking and that too for a variety of reasons. There are some who just feel bitten by the travel bug and want to experience a little bit of adventure and fun on the road. There are some others who are determined to rough it out and see for themselves the country of their choice and be able live among the local people.

Portugal Beaches

Most of Portugal‘s best beaches are in the Algarve, and typically these are vast, sandy areas with beautiful scenery and fantastic local facilities such as hotels, bars, cafes and restaurants. The Algarve has been a popular destination for tourists for many years, and one criticism of this area is that it is very commercialised and there is little cultural input, and Portugal‘s colourful history is barely represented in many of the bland modern resorts and bars. Still it is a lively area, and good value for money so it does make a great sun and beach destination.
