From Jamie's Philippines Pics

We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.

We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.

Thanks for checking us out!

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
- Mark Twain

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."
- Maya Angelou

Seymore at IKEA

Meet Seymore. Jamie and I went to IKEA yesterday for the first time. If you have never been to an IKEA, we strongly recommend you go but be sure to block off several hours for the occasion. IKEA is a Scandanavian modern style furniture and accessories. Just try and imagine a Target on steriods and you'll have a decent idea. Jamie and I went to buy a few things for our apartment. The IKEA in Shekou is relatively new and across town, but the school scheduled a bus trip for us to go. We decided to only buy a few things and try and stay away from anything too superfluous until we ran into this little wooden man. We decided that we would get him, and Jamie quickly named him Seymore. We've decided to try and include Seymore with our travels, so we hope that you'll be able to see more of Seymore (get it) at places like Hong Kong, the Great Wall, and perhaps the Taj Mahal.

Today the man finally came by and installed our DSL, so I'm hoping that I'll be able to beef up the site a little bit. My uncle emailed me and notified me that you can have our blog on an rss feed, so feel free to do that so you can take us wherever you go on your mobile phone. Pretty cool huh?
