I’m not especially afraid of spiders, I used to keep a black widow as a pet in a jar and feed it flies. Well, until all the babies hatched and ended up all over the room, that was kinda not good. But the idea of a spider this big, moving this fast across my face while I sleep is not a comforting one. My first week here I was greeted by a Giant Spider on the floor when I came home one day and it freaked me out.
I was sitting at my laptop when this thing appeared outside the doorway. So big even out of the corner of my eye I knew something was not right. They say these things are not poisonous but.. nah, not even gonna let that thing in the house. I’ve had pet snakes in the house but.. nope, no room for the Giant Spider in my living space.
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!
