Living in the province

Living in a province is both mine and my husband’s choice. The time of our planning to move here in the Philippines, one of the important questions I asked to my husband was”In what place would you prefer to live in the Philippines?”, his answer was in the city. Living in the city here is a lot different then in the province. I, myself grew up in the province and I know how I love it, so I explained my experiences to him and he suddenly changed his first choice. I can understand why he preferred to live in the city because I know most of his life he lived in the city. Where everything is accessible and easy, from big stores to wide roads and some important things for the house like good water pressure, good Internet service and no brown outs. Through my experiences in the province, I love really so much, from the fresh air to the nice views of the sea and mountains. The best reasons why I love to live in the province are to save energy in times of cooking, instead using a burner, we are free to use firewood to cook with which we can find anywhere on our property. Also we can find vegetables in our yard but as of now honestly there are just a few vegetables in our yard and hopefully soon the rain will come to help our garden grow. These all are my husband likes as well and he is happy living where we are at now.

    You made a big move…
    I´ve lived all my life in the city but I would really like to live in a province in a house with a plot. I´m doing all I can to make this move too.
    Glad to know it´s all working out well for you 🙂
    Nice to see you back to EC 🙂

    It's a big change of lifestyle for your husband but in due time he will realize that he made the right decision. You will have your patch of paradise in your home in the province when everything already falls into place. You will be able to reap the fruits and vegetables of your hard earned labors, lol. Living in the province with a big front and backyard will afford so many conveniences for you like your own homegrown fruits and vegetables and a lot of playing area for your kids. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
