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.

  2. Hello Rickay,
    Have you ever been to China?
    Did you ever go to
    Vietnam or Thailand?

    China is very very safe place to stay.

    Cost of living is even lower than
    Thailand , Vietnam
    or Philippines.

    Would you reply and advise?

  3. Anyone going overseas to find a woman could be a winner. But still be careful. Some women regardless of the country, could play you, waste your money and time, and in the end leave you heartbroken. Pick someone who likes you and wants you.

  4. In every city in Australia, you are looking at a minimum of 2K USD to rent a studio apartment.

  5. Retirement in the Philippines has been my goal since 2012. Thanks to you and your channel im 80 percent done. My dream will be reality in 6 more years of saving and visiting the Philippines for 60 day stays at a time.

  6. Easy to get sub $20/month on a phone in the US these days, though even a simple apartment is >$1,800/month for even a basic apartment in any major city.

  7. I like your style, I’m the same way I like to meet a female the old school way face to face!! Hopefully I will be in the Philippines within the year.

  8. 100k??? What??? Good, don’t stop. Thinking about any road trips would love to see the rest of the philippines!

  9. dam I love this post.Im 50 …..definitely got PHP on lock for perm stay.Doing all research ,you are providing.

  10. 6 trips since 2016. Happily married here in the US to a Filipina I met on Facebook. Retiring and returning soon, it’s been a wonderful journey, ups and downs but very positive overall. Keep bringing the good content, congratulations on 100k, you deserve it. I hope you and V are doing well
