Hi there, somewhere in the world,
This is the blog of Jan, a Dutch expat who is spending the rest of his life in the Philippines.

About Jan

I am born and raised in the Netherlands, a small but beautiful country in Europe, well known for its windmills, wooden shoes, cheese and tulips. I am retired from active duties. With my Filipina Wife we moved to the Philippines in 2008. Please read more about that move: Why did I become an Expat in the Philippines.

Please notice my picture at the right, so you will recognize me, just in case you see me somewhere in the Philippines.

And if you do, we will have a coffee, my treat!

I’m writing here about my experiences in this beautiful country and my life in general. I also like to give some information for other people who like to be an expat in the Philippines, or who just want to move here.

I am publishing pictures which I take when going out:

  • from the friendly people of the Philippines
  • remarkable things I see
  • nice places I’m visiting
  • and other interesting issues

This website is continuously changing, new posts and pages will be added, some old ones will be removed. I’m trying to improve my website all the time.

My mother tongue is Dutch, and although I’m trying to do my best to write proper English, I’m not always sure if my grammar or spelling is correct. My humble excuses if that’s the case. Feel free to send me an e-mail to correct me.
Have a lot of fun… đŸ˜‰
