    I’m with you, Mark! As I’m now well within the retired age range, I feel the need to move, since I’ve lived here in the Detroit area my entire life. When I look at the map of the US, the only place that draws me even a bit is Ft. Lauderdale, mostly because I have a few friends that live there and that it has a thriving gay community.

    On the other hand, I dream of retiring to Spain. I’ve visited a few cites, large and small and each one is just incredible. My dream area is Torremolinos. While I’ve only been once, it really did seem to speak to me. (Sitges is a nice second!). Taking small steps, my next goal is to spend 2-3 months there to see if my modest expectations hold. I love traveling in Europe in general and Spain really seems ideal for me. The gay communities I’ve seen also draw me.

    Needless to say, the recent podcast on Malaga was GREAT!
