Do you need money or have enough for retirement?

Could pick a nice area and just chill.

Not 'old' enough to retire yet, still a long way to go yet. Just hit the deadline age for Middle East and Asia is bit too far as I have family commitments.

Still need to earn, but importantly to keep sane need to work.

Do you have pension or savings? Maybe a retirement visa and teaching online? Like the scheme is Malaysia? You're old enough to retire there.

What about setting up a business somewhere in Europe to cater to people who want to learn English?

Thank you for your advice. I have thought about all of this, but I have to stay in UK due to family circumstances.

If you can get into a job before 58 you can often stay - for a long time in some cases. PM me
