Since 2012 I’ve been traveling through various islands of the Philippines as a full-time Expat and spent 1999 living in Vietnam.

Share with me my ongoing adventures of life in the Philippines. Hopefully you find my observations helpful in your own adventures.

  1. I’m glad to see you made it back. Did you fly Qatar Airways? My 2 favorites are Qatar and Korean Airlines. I’ve never been to an airport as nice of those 2 I. Qatar and Seoul when I cane back to ph in March 2022 i was cough and had a cold even had 3 covid test before I got to airport in Atlanta I was asked 3 different times because I was coughing so much even slept at Qatar airport in these sleep pods since I had a 9 hour gap between flights

  2. Did you bring a umbrella? It’s been raining here a lot. BTW, how long will you be in Cebu city?

  3. Hello Reelay, I wanted to see that amenities at this Doha – Airport. Becouse I wished something similar staying last time 30h (!) at the Singapour-Airport. Did not find that video.. PS: I would be very happy to meet up with you sometimes (I followed your footsteps 🙂 – now I am in Valencia.

  4. Glad you let that guy get out from the middle seat first.. that was a close call. Whoa! Destined to heaven with sacrifices like that.

  5. If you ever do see a seizure just try to catch their fall and them not to hut themselves it’ll pass after a few minutes but then fall will hurt them good luck on your trip

  6. Henry I was just thinking last time I flew to Cebu I used Korean air , would that not of met your criteria?

  7. Seeing this made me realize just how much I missed all of your earlier airport videos. I was curious what airline you are taking and why you went through Doha. Can’t wait to see your first video when you arrive in the Philippines.

  8. Hopefully you are back in the Philippines now 6:56 EST US time. Thanks for the update! Can’t wait for the new content!

  9. I am a bit puzzled as to why you flew from Los Angeles east via Doha in order to get to Cebu. Why did you not fly either from Los Angels or San Francisco to Cebu? I just purchased 4 days ago tickets on Philippine Airlines (PAL) from San Francisco to Cebu via Manila. Were there no flights available or were the prices too expensive? Just curious

  10. I really appreciate the short tour and information that you’ve given us about this airport. I myself am planning a trip to the Philippines for the first time and will be taking this same route. Thanks again!

  11. I envy you so much,been there in November and just love it so much, every minute of it. Going back soon.

  12. I am coming from the Mountains of North Carolina I’m flying to Cebu my 1st stop will be Dallas Fort Worth then Dohar My question to you is If it’s not too personal or something like I understand I’m debating on whether to fly business class or a lower class I’m looking at close to $4500 business class It is operated by Qatar airways from Dallas Fort Worth

  13. Feeling better and better is inversely proportional to the distance from Philippines. Happens to me all the time. By the time I am at the departure gate, I am already flying.

  14. I’m confused, how did you end up in Qatar? What path does the plane fly after taking off from LA?

  15. I’m arriving in Doha from Brussels in two weeks from now. I only have a 3 hour stop-over, but when going back it will be 9 hours, which sounds pretty dreadful to me, but it is what it is.

  16. Reekay I like the thing that shows you where things are in the airport, great idea. When I go to the Philippines I always google a map of each airport I’m going to stop in and make a copy of it so I can find my way around, but that system seems to be work great, unless it’s not working at the time you need it to. You and your girl have a happy time when you are back together. Hopefully me and my Filipino wife will get to meet you again one of these days with your girl. Barry & Aming

  17. I was just there 2 weeks ago coming home from Manila. Set up my next trip for August.

  18. I’m Glad for you and Vee….I bet she’s really excited Reekay….I’m waiting to get my first Social Security check deposited in my credit Union which hopefully will be by summer and I’m moving to the Dumaguete area where my beautiful girlfriend is. I was there before Covid-19 and I really miss the Philippines…..

  19. Welcome back Henry to the Philippines. You’ve probably stacked up your fridge in Cebu by now as I am watching this taped delay video of 8 days of you in Qatar airport.

  20. Will be great following you once again.. You have always made excellent and informative vids… Tks…

  21. Great Airport Great News Your Coming Back, Im In Sunny Alona Beach Panglao, Tuesday In Dumagette

  22. Sounds like a miserable trip to me, but traveling is personal. I understand people like to do it differently, with long layovers and multiple stops, but not for me. Nice to see you on the move again tho.
