Update, 2015 (Finally!) I’ve been busy!! But I’m back.

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.”

For those of you who have been following me at my main Youtube channel, you’ve been kept updated on all my latest adventures.  You can check it out here if you haven’t seen it yet;  www.seetheph.com

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. In July, 2012, I took a leap of faith and transplanted myself to the amazing Philippines. I am a single man taking an honest look at all that the islands here have to offer, one day at a time. I hope you find my LBTSea site informative, entertaining and hopefully a bit of each. 🙂 Be sure to visit the Forum and other parts of what the site has to offer.
