After 49 years living in Southern California, USA, I decided to move to the Philippines despite never having been here before. I spent a year getting all the information I could online and in July, 2012, I took a leap of faith and transplanted myself first to Mactan and then began my trek through Cebu, Bohol, Panglao, Moalboal, Dumaguete, Bacong and now living in Cebu City, here in the amazing Philippines.

Starting in January of 2019, I will begin a slow trek through Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and possibly Malaysia, China and Japan. My itinerary is open with no big rush since I hope to share in detail what each place is like as I enjoy it for months at a time.

I am a single man taking an honest look at all that Southeast Asia has to offer, one day at a time. I hope you find my channel informative and/or entertaining. 🙂

I hope you will make use of the links I provide as they help to support some of the costs of making this channel possible. Thanks!


  1. Great video. Your videos helped me a LOT when I was thinking of moving her (PH). I’ve been here a year now. I haven’t even met you, but you’ve been so, so helpful! (And you turned me on to Marshal’s Irish Pub in Cebu).

    Yeah, I miss my family. I also miss(ed) being able to obtain anything at any time. For awhile, I tried to bring the US here. That’s not the right mindset. Enjoy PH. Leave the US over there.

    1. i’m glad the vids are of some help. 🙂 and yes, you got it right.. just go and enjoy the PH for what it is. the less baggage, the better. just take the basic essentials (clothes, computer gear) and travel light.

  2. I really really, need to know the word for when a Filipina woman clams up. I thought I couild find it but I can’t. Any help would be soooooooooooooo appreciated
