I have a financial adviser and a Plan. Provided I stick to it (won't be hard as it requires few concessions, with the toughest being that I stick with the civil service for another 17 years), I'll have it all--the trip to Egypt and Tanzania, the Manitoba homestead, and retirement at the ripe old age of 45 years. One thing that was made clear is that I need to move up and my salary between 39 and 45 is going to be very determinative in whether I can afford full or partial (ie. working part-time) retirement.
Provided I don't get married and/or have kids, of course, which would screw up said Plan.
