    Hello folks in Dumaguete,

    We are Jon & Nelly von Kessel. My wife Nelly is a retired sixth grade teacher from way up north Batanes province, where I met her in 1965 while I was assigned there with the US Coast Guard at a 15 man USCG Loran Station. We got married six years later and have lived in Waikiki Beach area of Honolulu, Hawaii since 1971.

    We have traveled much of the world over the years, I've been to 79 countries and taken her to 46 countries. We will be visiting Dumaguete for the first, and hopefully not the last time starting on 28 March to 13 April 2016.

    If we like the place as much as we expect we may frequently return and probably live their half a year every year thereafter. We will continue traveling as much as possible until we are too decrepit to do so.

    Looking forward to meet many of you folks in Dumaguete.

    Regards,

    Jon von Kessel

    Aloha Jon! I hail from Papaikou, Hawaii (Big Island), but lived in Mililani Town for decades before that. I think you'll find the weather here to be much warmer than Hawaii. Welcome aboard though! :smile:
