There are two ways to retire, walking around the mall, or driving your Harley towards the setting sun. The Philippines is the place for your last hurrah, where people ungracefully come to admit they are retired, however to the young it is the Sirens Song.

Sirens Song
“Once he hears to his heart's content, sails on, a wiser man.”
- The Odyssey
Greek epic poems attributed to Homer.

An epic voyage where the
“plot, and the fact that events are shown to depend as much on the choices made by women and serfs as on the actions of fighting men.”

I am leaving the Philippines on the 21st of October,

Glad to see you haven't retired. Besides, how do you retire from a life of traveling the world?

The idea of perpetual travel it an alien thought, few people allow me the right to find my own path, they feel that as my friend, they should encourage me to stop traveling, like somehow this would make me happy. People are who they are, we cannot say we are different, we are what we do, no more, no less.

A traveler is a person that can ignore 99 percent of their friends best advice.
- Andy Graham

Your comment reminds me of a guy I met in LA while buying 1000 John Lennon buttons for resale who said, "defintion of friends, those who take up space between birth and death". Ever since then that's sort of how I think of LA / southern California, one of foreign investors' favorite places to invest.

The Kung Fu series exposed us to "perpetual travel" and reading the biographies of most of the "New World" explorers from the late 1400s to the late 1800s exposed me to perpetual travel and ignited my boyhood dreams of living an adventurous life. So you're NOT such an oddball Andy, you're LIVING your DREAMS so REJOICE in the JOY OF SUCH A LIFE!!!
