Our Around the World Adventure!

We quit our jobs, sold our belongings, and moved out of our townhouse in Atlanta to embark on this journey!  Fed up with only having a few weeks of vacation a year and a whole world that we wanted to see, we decided to do it now while in our early 30’s instead of waiting until retirement.

This section of our site is devoted to our Around the World adventure so that you can follow along, and perhaps be inspired to follow your dreams too!

Monthly recap – June 2015

The month of June was HOT here in Guangzhou.  We are getting used to the heat when we go outside, and cranking up that a/c when we are inside.  We worked a lot during this month, trying to get some new things up and running on the website, so again...another month...

Remember the Time I Broke My Foot…in China!

Here I am in China, propped up on the hideous (yet surprisingly comfortable) green velour sofa in our apartment, overlooking our balcony and surrounding high-rise apartments.  The sofa cushions and pillows have been rearranged so that I can sit sideways, and elevate...

Around the World Recap – May 2015

Yet again, I can't believe it's time to do another monthly recap!  Seriously, where did May go???  We were lucky enough to have my parents and aunt come to visit us for a week during the middle of May.  During their visit, we were super excited to finally go on a...

Around the World Recap – April 2015

Wow, another month flew by!  We have both spent most of the month working our tails off at our teaching jobs here in Guangzhou. But we've had some fun too! We ventured into the city center for a night to watch a professional soccer (football) match -- and the home...
