Good choice. I really miss Katmandu, but there are health care issues.

Not so at all.
Proximity to world class teaching hospitals, great public transportation, easy access to entertainment venues, cruises, airports, good colleges with lectures and classes for senior citizens, lots of seniors from varied and interesting backgrounds to socialize with - I think a person would prefer to retire in New York City. We did. That 'rat race' keeps you alive and engaged in life.

I definitely choose New York City.
Maybe London next.

I have not traveled the world, but perhaps will start.

If I had to pick one it would be London, one of the best cities on earth and not far from home which is a big plus for getting back to see friends and family.

Outside of my country too?

San Diego. Similar climate to Sydney (a better climate even), English speaking, not bad economically, familiar architecture ...

Probably a small town in Fairfield County, Connecticut with an easy train commute to NYC.

I have lived in Greenwich before and I would not mind living in a town like Greenwich, New Canaan, Westport or Darien, as long as someone paid all my bills lol.

The cost of living in these towns is absolutely ridiculous though, an average home in Greenwich these days goes for about 750 K. Here in Iowa, you can buy something similar for about 150K, only 5 times more expensive.

Either Saint-Malo

http://www.francethisway.com/places/st-malo.php

http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=6536329



or Quimper










Both cities have everything one needs, and both are lovely ancient small cities. Saint Malo has a magnificent beach, and Quimper is a short coach ride to the beautiful beaches at Fouesnant.

Vancouver as it is a geographically diverse city. You can go to the beach, forests or the mountains in less than 30 min. In addition, it doesn't get that cold and doesn't get a huge amount of snow
It is a huge city and has everything for every taste. No matter what your interests are you will find it in Vancouver
