Getting 2 Bohol (79)

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. Wow this story was so entertaining I can really relate to you and think we are a bit similar lol. I have been to the Philippines recently in Manila, Las Pinas and I loved it there, yes a little culture shock but I adjusted quickly I am sure because I have been living in Colombia for 3 Years on and off. I will be returning to Manila this March 25, I held onto my 1 bedroom apartment there because it was incredibly inexpensive and in such a great neighborhood with and awesome garden courtyard, I am taking your advice this time I am returning to the USA before gong back to Manila anyway so I will visit the embassy in NYC and will get a tourist visa so that I can remain in manila for an extended period by just getting extensions, and i will buy a throw away ticket for my return flight. I must say your website is fantastic and in no time anyone reading it I am sure finds themselves thinking they have known you forever. I would love to live out in a island paradise like you however my sweetie must finish one more year of college and complete the student teaching requirements before we will venture off and find a place, we did visit Verac and I really liked it there and so many sea side places to rent.

    1. It’s cool for me to hear from so many people, the places they have chosen to explore. I plan on visiting Moalboal, Dumaguete and Malapascuas along with some other places I’ve gotten info on from other expats. So much to see! 🙂
