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. 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.
