Greetings, everyone. A friend and fellow diver here in Seattle, who is getting ready to retire, mentioned Dumaguete as a place where he might settle. He is married to a Filipina. That sparked my curiosity and I’ve been checking it out online. I’ve only been to the Philippines once before, back in November, and I visited El Nido and Cebu. I’m returning on April 8th and I will spend a week in Dumaguete checking it out and seeing if I could make a life of it myself. I’m glad that I found this site, as it gives me a lot of useful information. I plan on retiring in January of 2020, after almost 23 years of police work. I really don’t know what the next chapter will hold, but I do know that it will include plenty of diving! Thanks!
