I am an average guy who grew up in a large city here in the states. Since my retirement, I’ve been wanting to move to the Philippines. My wife who is a Filipina tells me that it is too dangerous that I would be kid-napped.
I tell her that I could take care of myself with anything that comes my way, in other words I am not a push over. Should I say; I worked as a longshoremen, teamster, as well as 23 years inside three different prison. No not as an inmate, as a prison guard and retired sergeant. So to put it mildly, I watch my back.
Now with all that said, do I have much to worry about? My wife and I have a two story home in Sta. Margarita, Samar. When I was there in Samar and Manila, I felt comfortable among the Filipino people. As a matter of fact I found them to be very inviting and nice in general. So what’s the big deal? Is my wife just trying to scare me? I don’t scare easy.
So what do you say? Would like any advise from any American who permanently lives in the Philippines.
