Location: Framingham, MA, United States
I am 61 in July and think about retirement in Philippines. Meanwhile my wife and kids would stay in USA, so I will live in Philippines alone and go to US sometimes, hopefully they would come to see me and enjoy Philippines once in a while as well. I have travelled a lot around the world in my life but have never been to Philippines, just know about the country, people, etc. from literature, Internet, my friends, etc. I expect to come to Philippines in November for about 3 weeks to make final decision, find the place to live, etc. Cebu and Dumaguete are in the first lines of my list and I definitely come there, spend some time and probably stay there for the rest of my life later on. I also plan to go to Manila (I don’t think I would like to live there but want to see the city), Baguio, and few other places. I don’t have any schedule or detailed plans yet and hope my new local friends would help me with that.
So for the moment I just look for some friends, local company, etc. who could open for me the country and the places I would love, show some details and things foreigners would never see as tourists, answer my stupid questions, etc. Meanwhile I am quite experienced, educated, intelligent and smart person and probably could be interesting and even useful as a good adviser, etc. to my friends as well. I am not reach but hopefully have enough savings and retirement funds to live in Philippines quite good, invite my friends for diner or drink sometimes, etc. I am also quite energetic and probably find some business to do in Philippines as I used to work all my life and cannot seat idle at home or on the beach. For now I just have some ideas and need to understand if they might be realized.
