    Hello I am from Canada and my name is Jack and I have followed this thread for some time. There is some valuable information on here and it's a good place to share ideas and our experience here in the Philippines.

    I am married and living in the Valencia area. I am retired full time and don't need any kind of work or job to keep me busy :smile: Between working out, swimming and spending quality time with my wife the days fly by.

    Thanks to everyone contributing to this forum, I will share any of my knowledge and experience if I can.

    Cheers,

    Jack.

    Hello Jack, sorry I totally forgot about this forum :( I think JP is quite unique. I often get called JJ because my name is legally John but somehow I got stuck with Jack as a child and it has stuck. Have a great day.

    Hello, again sorry for the delay in replying, I totally forgot about this forum. I moved to Valencia in January 2014, so we have been here just over 2 years. It is very quiet here and also the mountain air is clean and much cooler than in Dumaguete. Where are you located?

    Hello sir, welcome to the Philippines. I am assuming you are in Dumaguete now? If so there is a nice place to snorkel in Dauin, close to the public market. There is a fish sanctuary there and it is quite nice for snorkeling. If you have been here since December I would think you probably have already discovered this :smile: I am from Toronto my self and will return to Canada sometime in May.
    Cheers,
    Jack
