Wow.. where to start?
Last time you heard from me (here) I had just returned to Bohol after a holiday visit to California. I’ll go into more detail on what transpired when I got back to the islands in another article. But as they’d say on Seinfeld, “… yadda yadda yadda.. I ended up in Dumaguete.”
Lately, getting a decent Net signal has been a real pain. But I’m awaiting the installation of my DSL line to my apartment so hopefully that will be at least 4Mbps and I can update more frequently here again. Life is good here in the PH and I have learned a lot in the last year. Met some amazing people, both Filipinas and Expats from all over the world.
The video channel is doing very well, with over 4 million views so far.. over 11,000 subscribers and I just recently completed my 500th video. I did something a little special for that, you can check that out here.
That’s it for now but I’ll be back soon with lots of photos and some articles to explain what the last year has been like. Oh, I don’t use email so if you want to reach me, the best way is via Facebook at;

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!
