Paul....

Kudos to you.

One thing I would NOT do is buy "rental property". Yeah, a monetary return may be there but you will work for it ... not to mention it'll be a guaranteed source of stress and headaches. If you have the urge to own more property, I'd suggest a couple of solid REITs. The "cruise" thing has appeal or have you thought about a place to "get away" once in a while.

You've worked hard and while I don't suggest you start to squander I do think you deserve to enjoy life. I've found that one trip where I really treat myself well is worth three where I was being overly 'economizing'.

As Dines says: "Always travel first class. If you don't, your heirs certainly will."
