Getting 2 Bohol (1)

Author: Reekay

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. My wife`s nephew lives in Deca home 5 area in Basak. We have been searching a house and a lot in the same Basak area. Seems not so crowded as other parts in Lapu-Lapu, I think! You had a nice yard which is a plus there!

    1. Yes, there is still some open area left in the Basak section. Over in Lapu Lapu, near the marketplace it’s pretty much filled up. The northern end (Maribago area) is mostly resorts to the east side and industry/airport to the west side. You may want to at least check out the southeast side, over by Cordova. Amazing view of the sunset each day from that southern end of the island, and lots of open space still available. No major malls there though, would have to go about 2 miles to Basak, at the Grand Mall.. or 4 miles to the Island Mall near the airport.
