Edwin Toth’s Rambling Adventures in Retirement and BEFORE!
“The latest about Edwin’s amazing retirement adventures.”
July 2014: It’s the end of July and I have been living in the Philippines for two years now. In March I started driving on my own having made several trips to San Antonio, Zambales and a long weekend with friends in Baler, Aurora. The Baler road trips were long drives but very enjoyable seeing the Sierra Madre. My big decision right now is deciding where I want to live as my current lease ends in December. I would like to be closer San Antonio and easier access to the beaches. I made a trip to Bacnotan, La Union to look at a house a friend has offered. It a great one story home. At this time I am still undecided what to do.
August 2013: It has been one year this August since I sold my home in Jessup, Maryland, loaded the sea container with household goods and boarded the plane at Ronald Reagan National Airport, Washington DC with Mark to fly to Manila. It was about a 24-hour trip. I remember arriving in flooded Manila from the previous week’s monsoon rains. We just went through 6 days of rain this August. Lots of flooding again in low areas of Manila. Well, it’s all part of living in the Philippines.
