Live in the Philippines with Cryptocurrency? What Does the Future Hold?

First, Think Income! I’ve talked about it in the past. Many times. Many other bloggers have concurred. If you want to live in the Philippines, you will need an income… and to be secure, you will need to bring that income from outside the Philippines. It’s true that some guys will head to the Philippines […]

Retired and Living in the Philippines – 5 Years!

The Blog. As the Retired in Samar blog approaches its 5-year anniversary (next month), I felt it would be a good time to publish an anniversary post.

And the Blog Award Goes to……

Well, not me, I’m sure. Some time ago I apologized to my readers for my inactivity on the blog, mainly as a result of my inability to connect to the internet. It had become such an inconvenience to drive into town to an internet cafe and stand and wait in line for a computer…at the […]

I Know! I Read it in a Blog!
