When it comes to Living in the Philippines, my experience is mostly in Mindanao. I have visited a number of other parts of the country, but I’ve only lived in Mindanao, so it’s hard for me to know what it is like to live in some of these other places. Luckily for me, though, I […]
Travel in and from the Philippines
Firstly, travel inside the Philippines gives the opportunity to experience many different cultures, languages and scenery. The Philippines has regions that are so different that it is almost like visiting a different country even just going from one town to another. As a group of 7,107 islands, the cultures present in the country are multiple. You can spend a lot of time traveling the Philippines without seeing all there is to see.
The other great thing about travel is traveling from the Philippines to other countries. Within just a short flight from the Philippines you can literally visit a dozen or more different countries! Take that out to 6 hours or less of travel and you can expand from a dozen to several dozen countries that are at your doorstep! It all leads to some great travel adventures from the Philippines without the need for long trips!
Of course, if you travel from the Philippines, coming home is always a great experience!

Cagayan de Oro (CdO) City is located on the Island of Mindanao. Don’t let that scare you off, Mindanao is not as dangerous as what you hear. Actually, there are only a few isolated areas of Mindanao that you should avoid, and Cagayan de Oro is not one of them! Cagayan de Oro is located […]
One thing that many people ask me about is what I think about living in this City or that City. During my days of living in the Philippines, I have lived in General Santos City and in Davao. I currently live in Davao and have been living here for almost 6 years now. When somebody […]
The Philippines is an archipelago of 7,107 different islands. A saying that you hear from time to time is that if you don’t like the Island where you currently are, there are 7,106 others that you can try! If you are in a country like the Philippines that is comprised of multiple islands, the easiest […]
I have mentioned here a number of times that I tend to be rather adventurous, and I tend to go to places where a lot of other foreigners don’t really go. One place that I went to earlier this year that was sort of “off the beaten path” was to the Island of Basilan. Basilan […]
