About Me.. In 2011 I made the decision to move to the Philippines within a year. Since 2012 I’ve been traveling through various islands of the Philippines as a full-time Expat. (Mactan, Bohol, Panglao, Moalboal, Dumaguete, Bacong, Boracay, Cebu) I recently spent the year living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Share with me here my ongoing adventures of life in the Philippines. Dating, vlogging, cooking, traveling and sharing the information with you needed to make your own plans for living as a full-time expat in Southeast Asia.

  2. We Americans and Europeans are more….humm “gullible” than men of other nations. Why would any sensible man bring a woman to the states. Give her a good life in her country. Treat her nice but nice in her home country.

  3. I would of went the online marriage route but found out too late. If you are planning to do a spouse visa, online marriage can save you the hassle of getting married in the Philippines on a short vacation.

  4. I thought he looked familiar, I was on the same plane on April 6th. I wish I could have stayed longer than 5 days but my job is in America

  5. Hello Henry and many thanks for having Alex and Melissa share their story and wonderful experiences! I will be traveling to Manila for 2 weeks in August 2022 and staying at a Makati hotel!

  6. Thank you and Enrique, for putting on a couple that is making a happy marriage transpire. This couple epitomizes a healthy Phil/Am relationship. And yes it can happen without adultery and scamming that we hear about. There is another way. These people have found it. Thanks again…

  7. My wife and I did the same thing. Although she and I met online. Decided to get married online so I could get a 9A visa. We set the date in December of 2021 for February 1 2022. Of course we found out the country was going to re open before the married but we were already committed to the date. I met her on March 28 and spent 2 weeks. During which we also had a formal wedding dedication with her family and friends. I have no regrets.

  8. Can you tell what is the process getting married in the Philippines, I’m going there next year to marry my Filipina ?
