Welcome! My husband and I are currently living in New Zealand, slack jawed in awe of this gorgeous country. We spend every free moment exploring all the exciting things this country has to offer, but enjoy drinking a good cup of coffee and talking about nothing on Saturday mornings. My husband and I have been traveling since February of 2012, starting our lives abroad as ESL teachers to a bunch of kiddos.
Interested in traveling abroad to teach yourself and making some money? Check out ‘So You Wanna Be An ESL Teacher?’ It’ll help you get started with answering some of your questions!
Having just left Korea after spending 2.5 years there we have some fond memories, and encountered quite a few oddities. I go into detail about how I always end up offending someone with ‘Sorry if I’m Rude I’m an American.’ Don’t worry, the locals have also gotten me befuzzled and offended quite a few times themselves, all listed in the post ‘Korea: The Country Where Random Situations Rule.’ If you’re wanting a general gist of what we think of our current home, ‘The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly‘ should do it for you. Except for the part where I didn’t tell you that your whole entire life becomes ‘A Game of Charades.‘
If I haven’t lost you so far, you’re in for the long-haul. I’m lovin’ our new friendship, but you should just know one thing before we get to close: ‘I Don’t Use Shampoo.’ As a matter of fact, I haven’t used it since February 2013 but who’s counting? Thankfully I still have friends who love to hang out with me despite my weird habits just like this example in ‘Fireworks + Friends = Epic.’ The reason I do what I do a lot of the time…is because I like to be a health conscious person as stated in ‘No Gym Membership Required.‘ I also like to make my own copycat Burt’s Beeswax..do I get extra points for that one?
I should mention I have a little bit of an addiction to photography. I love looking at pictures, taking pictures, loading pictures on the blog-the whole nine yards. I’ve done a few self-photography shoots (‘Using the Shadows’), a shoot with my husband (‘A Saturday Photo Session’), and countless photo documentations of our travels.
Speaking of travels, you should know that Derik and I love to travel (um…duh). Go see where we’ve been!
Thanks for dropping by, and be sure to leave a comment or two so I know you were here!
