As we're financing all this with income from the current jobs, many of our desired "expensive" experiences will have already done, once we retire.

I find your post both intersting and somewhat personal.

In my current position, I find myself now traveling to India on occassion (outsourcing/offshoring and all of that...). This coming year, I will be making the trip probably 4 - 6 times.

It struck me on my last (20 hour) flight home that there should be some side benefit from this gig. Beginning this year, I plan to have my wife meet me in Europe at least once or twice, take a week or two of vcation, and do exactly as you suggest. There are lots of places we would like to explore, and have always planned on doing it in retirement, but why wait?

If one can combine business obligation with leisure, I sort of figure it's a version of "MOFL" Moving Out Of The Fast Lane by leveraging (and enjoying) my high income years, rather than getting stressed out and wishing I were "retired".

My best wishes to you both. As my friends in India say...."Happy Journeys".

Regards,

Rick
