In Paradise
« on: July 26, 2018, 03:59:01 PM »
Hello, retired about 4 years ago and been living in the Visayans with my FilAm wife for about 3 years. Before that we were living and working in Florida. Thought retirement would be challenging not to get bored but we stay pretty busy. We've traveled a little and enjoyed meeting new people and seeing what the Philippines has to offer but we still have over 7000 islands to see!  ;)

I'm looking forward to reading the archives and maybe even asking a "stupid" question now and again as I pick through your knowledge of my new home.

Welcome aboard, love the title of your thread, I am always happy when I read about those who love the Philippines and enjoy their life in the Philippines.
:) Happily married since 1994 & live part of the year in Cebu and the rest in S. Florida.

Welcome.  Are you sure that you are not really from Georgia?  Yeah, I don't think you are going to run out of islands to visit and see of the 7,000 plus islands soon.  It will probably take you a while.
Whatever floats your boat.

Thanks! Nice thing about being retired is we can take our time to see all the islands.

And I do love it here but there are some bumps in paradise but if you take those in stride it all works out.

I thought I was a patient man wen I moved here but every day I learn a little more about accepting things that were not in my game plan
