    Leaving you Comfort Zone?

    That sounds the best option, I would say Gary The stories I've heard about bad Tennant's would put anyone off renting out their home. Leaving your home unoccupied for months would invalidate you insurance cover too and be to risky especially in winter. (burst pipes etc)

    Leaving you Comfort Zone?

    Jake I'm sure you would agree we are living in testing times, the world is getting smaller and pressures are getting larger. I guess there is a suckle difference between escaping and running away from life as we know it and entering the unknown. Most people who make the decision to leave it all behind, do so in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, whether that is a better standard of living, a more comfortable retirement or opting out of the rat race. oh yes and the love of a partner. We have discussed in the past burning bridges or having a plan A and a plan B. My comfort zone is accepting what I can't change and making the most of what life has thrown at me this far! Also at my time in life, health is wealth, frontiers are for the young and adventurous......so give me a home where the buffalo roam Respectfully JB

  6. Old55 Checked out the UK Foreign Office advice no mention of Cebu or Southern Cebu as a potential threat We have already booked tickets for our flights to Manila and I was hoping to spend a few days in Oslob Cebu as well as a visit to family in Mindanao.

    Living in the provinces, Do we really Know what this means?

    Jack my dear friend sincerely, I have meet "poor" people maybe we should call them indigenous people in Mindanao. They may have little by way of materials possessions, but with their skills of survival, they would outlive the lot of us, in the event of a catastrophe. Here I go with yet another quote......"What you never had you never miss" that's not to say the lovely people of Philippines are a bunch of unhappy souls, quite the opposite, I have found that those with less are more hospitable than those who have more! My regards JB

    Living in the provinces, Do we really Know what this means?

    I agree 100% OMW, and I'm sure so would the Street Kids in many Cities across the Philippines. Not quite sure where Jack's coming from by the Title, but I have heard the expression " I'm not from the mountains" which I guess refers to less educated poor people, so "does abject poverty exist here in Philippines?" being the question,from what I have seen in some of the Provinces I have visited, YES it does! Just watched a documentary about the homeless youngsters on the streets of England! so the problem exists everywhere in varying degrees.

    Nothing minor about that position by the sound of it! Looks like you struck gold, don't till anybody where you found it! Money ain't everything, but in Philippines status goes along way

    How Safe is Philippines?

    If I tried to bank that much here in UK I would be accused of money laundering! If I tried to purchase a car with that amount of cash it would be refused for the same reason, unless you can prove where it came from and most banks would disapprove of carrying that amount cash.

    Seasonal illness

    I believe so Jack....... that's why the locals call you Batman With temperatures reaching 27-30c in UK, pollen count is playing havoc with the old nostrils.

    Building a appartment

    Steve unless you intend to live there permanently for the rest of your life, it's a none starter in my eyes. It's easy to spend other peoples money and also easy to walk away when you have nothing to lose.

    Seasonal illness

    Yes Steve me too! the pollen count is very high at the moment in UK, it's the sore eyes that get to me.

    My wife and I have sailed on the overnight ferry a few times, the last time I didn't get much sleep. I think I would look at the option of a cheap flight instead next time, just my to cent's
