Re: Reevaluating my life and need advice please.

And this is the National Institute of Economic and Social Research prediction for the next five years... you guessed it 4.5% down by the end of this year and 10.5% by 2015 after inflation has been accounted for... (which means that depending on what inflation will be the price might not necessarily change but the money you get is not worth as much as it did a few years before...)

food for thought...

Dramatic title results in lot of posts. You got to sell yourself to get some advice

I am off to book a cheap holiday as I can't pick an investment direction yet. Meanwhile Post Finance can hold on to my money for bit longer.

well our fellow is not interested in finding a new girlfriend / wife / partner for life... as I would imagine this would be very easy for him now with a healthy bank balance

also our fellow said that he is a free spirit and doesn't really need any advice on new things to try etc

we are merely philosophising on what he should do with CHF400k

maybe the title could be changed to reflect the reality...

How do you expect to get rid of your $$$ if you go booking cheap holidays??

Where are you going to go? (Please share your exciting plans with those who don't have 400k big ones to blow on holidays )

cheap holidays are boring if you go alone. Best way to enjoy it is to share it with someone (female or male).

I will see what is on offer but aiming for Asia and most likely Thailand or Nepal.

You are right which is why I always hook up with other travellers or local females from the actual holiday destination. I like keeping all relationships brief and sweet.

Sounds nice and fascinating. I hear both of those destinations are amazing. Enjoy!!

You could volunteer to work with your favourite charity organization or somewhere you find by yourself (teaching English or something) in Nepal. Meanwhile get an apartment/parking spaces or something in or near Zürich to rent out.

There's so much you could do

On a more subjective note, long term relationships are extremely rewarding. Don't underestimate the value of having a partner to share your life with. Men benefit particularly from it, so I've read. Maybe this is the cause of your need for a reevaluation? \2cents

Nepal just like every other place on Earth is good for all kinds of aspirations. I have had wonderful time in Nepal with many western female tourists. Everyone needs sexual spiritual healing.

I was not looking for any females here. What I was looking for I got already and am thankful to everyone who replied.

I don't know why people are so against non long term sexual relationships? There is nothing more spiritual than consensual sex in my humble opinion.

Then the spirit gets a good kicking when it gets unceremoniously dumped after a spiritual fumble.

Sorry, I've had to pick up the pieces of a friend who was hopelessly attracted to the "I'm a free spirit" types who are actually looking for a no strings attached shag.

as long as you keep yourself
safe

There is no point in a lifetime of regrets after a quick drunken fumble.

Be it herpies, unwanted pregnancies, or a dreadfully broken spirit.

But i am sure you know what you are doing...

It is not easy. Lots of new blocks going up with parking as competition.

People are moving away from personal cars, especially as public transport improves, Mobility type schemes get better and oil prices rise. Once interest rates start to rise, 6% might not look so attractive for an asset in decline. You might have to sell on with 8% yield. Properties in former East Germany
can yield 20% easily. Yield and possibility for capital gain. I wouldn't necessarily advise that though.
About "Properties in former East Germany can yield 20% easily."

20% yield in euros that have declined 20% in value against the CHF recently? So I would have made nothing?
