"The first time I came to Tacloban City, I went from one place to another on the search for a good hotel. And so a couple of years later I created this website."

TaclobanHotels.com is a web directory of hotels in Tacloban City and it's aim is to provide an easy way to search for those hotels and to compare them with eachother.

My wife is the one who's helping me with updating the news here, answering questions and updating the hotel reviews. So that you will know who is working on this website, here's some background information about us, this is our story ..




HOW I MET MY WIFE


I met my wife Arlene way back in
April 20th 2001 in Tacloban City, Leyte
.

That was not my first visit to the Philippines.
Until then I had been to the Philippines and particularly the Visayas region for several times and each time I fell in love with this place and it's people a little more
.

That special day I wanted to enjoy and have some fun and so I went out with some of my cousins and friends.





A PLACE CALLED KARRY

There weren't many places to go that time. Someone told me of a place called 'Karry', a place where they used to play good live music that time and so we went there with my cousin Brian and a friend.





A GIRL STRUCK MY EYES

After a while a girl who was working there struck my eyes. I didn't show her immediately that I was attracted to her. After some drinks and several hours later we went home and I couldn't get this girl out of my mind.

Next day we decided to go there again. Fortunately she happened to be there again.





DINNER NEXT DAY

I took all my courage and approached her. After having a long conversation with her (her english was surprisingly good) and playing some billiards with her (and letting her win of course) I decided to invite her for dinner the next day.

Surprised by my stepping forward she willingly accepted to meet me the next day at the same place.

So the next day I was there in time and waiting for her. I waited one hour, two hours, then I started worrying .. she let me wait for three hours until she appeared .. more beautiful than ever .. !!





OUR FIRST DATE

One of our first dates was at the old Shakey's in Tacloban, later we had a wonderful dinner at the floating Restaurant in Leyte Park. That was also the place where I first happened to kiss her.

Of course we both felt very sad when I had to go back to Germany. She was still very young and had to finish her studies first ..





OUR WEDDING

And so, many many long phonecalls later - I was only able to visit her once a year for three weeks - we finally married at October 20th 2007 at the Palo Cathedral with more than 200 guests and with her whole family.











TOGETHER AGAIN

In July 2008 after finishing her studies she came here to me to Germany. We are now living here together in Bavaria/Southern Germany and she's studying the german language.





A BABY IS COMING

Now we're writing the year 2009 and in July we're expecting our first child. We're both very happy for things to come.





Arlene's helping me with preparing the baby's room ..


OUR SON IS BORN

This is our little boy Billy Ray Christian.
Arlene and I have a son!
He was born on July, 04th 2009.
Now isn't he handsome .. !?
I really love this little fellow .. !!
