About me

Hello my friends

Hello my friends


  my fellow readers and bloggers.

I am currently living  in Harlingen TEXAS near the Rio Grande River and the Gulf of Mexico. I had been living in the Philippines for almost 7 months during 2012.  I learned a great deal about the Filipino people, language and culture and I hope to return someday to retire there. I am in the process of writing three books about my adventures in the Philippines. I will post images of the book covers so you can preview what the books will encompass. I hope to do a new post daily (or at least several times a week) from now on, so I hope to be seeing a lot more of you 🙂

this is me, Steven

  1. hi there and thanks for following my India Journal Blog. I wish you well on your move and on your new blog as well. As I am not in India at the moment, I am posting now mainly on my current blog which you might also like to check out:

    I love your flower photos and look forward to more as well

  2. Thanks for following my blog. I will be interested in seeing your posts on your experiences in the Phillippines – I have traveled in Asia a bit and may post some memoirs about these trips eventually – meanwhile I like to see what others are posting and thinking about this part of the world. The Phillippines is a unique piece both ethnically and culturally – looking forward to your insights.

  3. Hi Steven,

    Thank you for following my blog. It’s really nice to know that you want to retire in the Philippines. 🙂 The Philippines is the best place (not only for retirement) but growing a family and business… I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and good luck in your book.


  4. Hi,
    Thanks for the follow! I’ll be adding some travel writing from Greece in the next few weeks. I look forward to learning more about the Philippines. Nice work.

  5. Hi Steven – thanks for following my blog. I’m just new to all of this so still trying to find my way with it. It’s so interesting to read what others are writing about. I’ve never been to the Philippines but hopefully one day……

  6. Hi Steven, I’m looking forward to reading more about Philippines.
    I can imagine that the experience to spend some time over there was precious and there are plenty of things to write about!

  10. Hi Steven. Thank you for visiting my blog and following! I appreciate both. I look forward to learning of your adventures in the Philippines. My parents have friends who were missionaries there for years and adopted three of their 6 children from there so it is a place that holds fond thoughts for me. Blessings, Robyn

  11. I’m looking forward to reading about your experience in the Philippines. I am working toward moving out of the country as well and feel as you do, like I have one foot her and one foot there. Thanks for following my blog. I try to keep it interesting and look forward to your comments.

  12. Hey there! 7 months in the Philippines sounds awesome! Did you work or just travel around the whole time? In se asia at the moment and thinking of adding it to my itinerary. Looking forward to reading more about your time there!

  13. Hey Steven. Cool blog! It’s always great to read about other people’s travelling experiences. On our website we normally publish stories and articles about hitch-hiking and travelling so if you have any story you would like to be seen by a wider audience (with a link to your blog of course). This is how we do it: http://hitchhikershandbook.com/your-contributions/travel-stories/ Drop us a line if you are interested.
    Happy travels!

  19. Hello newest Spikey! I know, a bit corny, eh, but that’s the term that has come to stick for those folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it, thrown in for good measure.

    My promise to you is not to be overbearing, just a couple of posts a day, maybe 3 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…


  20. Hi! Thanks for stopping by and following my blog!

    Haha, it’s so cool, my parents are both from Cagayan Valley and while I did not grow up here in the Philippines, every time we’d vacation over, I’d alternate summers in Cagayan Valley and Manila! Glad to know you found your stay here interesting!! 🙂

    • Thanks, I am making plans to leave for the Philippines late next year or early 2016. I also plan to live part time in Malaysia and a few weeks out of the year in Indonesia. Good luck with your plans and hope we can meet up in Malaysia sometime in 2016!
