Expat Lifestyle Revealed in Latest Book by Bestselling Author - Veteran Expat Exposes the Real Truth About Retiring to the Philippines


Bacolod, Philippines -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2014 -- has just released a brand new book aimed at making it easier than ever before for expats to retire to the Philippines. Gary McMurrain distills his 27 years of experience, visiting, working and living the expat lifestyle in his latest book and continues with his passion of helping future expats.

Gary McMurrain and Steve Fleming launched in April 2013 with the sole purpose of helping others to enjoy the kind of lifestyle that they have come to love. The site is packed full of articles and insights into just what it’s like to live as an expat in the Philippines.

The two had always intended to release books designed to help other expats retire to paradise. Expat Tales of Life in the Philippines is their fourth release and it’s already creating quite a buzz amongst the expat community.

“By writing about my personal experiences over the past 27 years I’m trying to give other expats who are considering making the move to the Philippines a true insight as to what lies ahead for them.”, Gary explained.

“While no two peoples experiences will be exactly the same the book does a good job of showing the types of things most people can expect to encounter. Many of the stories will seem familiar as they are based around the central theme of relocating to a new country and being a complete stranger.

It’s both exhilarating and frightening in equal proportions but ultimately it’s a journey that’s well worth taking. I know that for me and many of the other expats I know, making the decision to retire to the Philippines was the best thing we ever did.”

Expat Tales of Life in the Philippines is jam-packed with stories and anecdotes of one man’s journey to finding happiness in a foreign country. Gary and Steve are committed to helping people to retire to the Philippines and will be releasing many more books in the future.

We asked Steve Fleming why he decided to start a website with Gary McMurrain and this was his response.

“Gary is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable people I’ve ever known when it comes to living the expat lifestyle in the Philippines. I’ve read quite a few posts and articles from those that claim to have the ‘secret sauce’ but they all pale when compared to Gary.

The reason I actively targeted Gary and made an effort to partner with him is because he’s so helpful and willing to assist wherever possible. He moderates forums, writes books and articles and even arranges to act as tour guide to people who are interested in coming here. I don’t know of anybody else that shows that kind of dedication and commitment to a single objective and I’m happy to call Gary McMurrain my business partner!”
