“The latest about Edwin Toth’s amazing retirement adventures.”

February 2015 – I have been living in Sun Valley Estates, Inarawan, Antioplo since December 2012. It is a nice three story town house with a little side garden. I have lots of pots with herbs and flowers. I would like to move closer to Zambales and the beach and ocean.

In August 2012 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, its all part of living in the Philippines.
