Well that all changed. We arrived and went. Spent a bit of time in Duma, Valencia and Cebu, caught up with some old and new friends but after some long hard thinking and talking with a few people we decided not to relocated to the Philippines. Our main reason is the education but the place just felt different since our last trip in 2019/20. Strange how our view changed, we have been to the Philippines so many times before. Also I think staying in Thailand for 4 months before really spoilt us and changed our view. So for now its back to Australia. I arrived home a few days ago, wife and kids will follow in a few weeks.
