I retired in 2013 from an international development organization (UNICEF) where I got posted in different countries. During my foreign mission assignments, my husband and I love to travel, learn and adapt the different cultures and meet new and old friends. While we love seeing places around the world, we also long for the quiet and laid back life of the small town in the province far from the maddening crowd. So we built our cozy retirement nest in the heart of town in the small seaside community of Loay, just 18 kms (30 minutes) from Tagbilaran, the capital of Bohol.
We would love to share stories with our fellow travelers over coffee/tea or perhaps a nice bottle of wine.
Come share your journals with us. We believe the journey itself is the destination.
