Avoiding winters like the plague, molding young minds and diligently refusing to grow up and 'get a real job'.

About this blog

Attempting to avoid Canadian winters at all costs, in 2004 we decided that traveling and teaching would be an ideal way to immerse ourselves in foreign cultures, not merely pass through them, staring wide eyed from a bus.

We got married, quit our jobs, sold our house, put everything remaining into storage and boarded a plane bound for China.

More than 2 years later and boldly ignoring the rattling sabres of cross-straits tensions, we moved to Taiwan where we are currently working in Hsinchu County.

We've hiked up glaciers and down into gorges; braved the terrors of 3rd world buses; swum in azure waters and eaten things that you would normally crush beneath your heel or feed to your dog. We've lazed on deserted, white sand beaches and watched the sun dip beneath the horizon, bathed in colours that no artist's brush could ever replicate. We've visited ancient temples; ridden elephants through tropical rainforests; spelunked into subterranean caves; watched wild Orang-utans swinging lazily through the jungle canopy and gazed in awe at vast rivers and snow capped mountains.

Read on and I hope you enjoy..
