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

Trip "Home" to China

Jamie and I were rushed to get out to the airport at Phnom Penh, but since the airport was so small, we only got there about 50 minutes before our departure and was still ok. The flight from Phnom Penh to Bangkok went off without a hitch and we hung around the Bangkok airport for 2 and half hours before our flight to Hong Kong. Again, we flew Emirates back to Hong Kong and it was great! The pilot told us we could not land in Hong Kong, so he diverted the plance to Guangzhou because of bad weather. We sat in the plane for a couple of hours and finally arrived at the Hong Kong airport about 3 hours after we were supposed to.

Since the last ferry had already taken off, we were stuck in Hong Kong not really knowing what to do. We were able to meet up with a nice Australian gentleman who also needed to get to Shekou. We shared a cab with him which was the fastest way to get home. It was actually a bit cheaper for us too, so it worked out.

I think Jamie is going to make a post about the food later on today perhaps. I'll get the photos from the last days up soon. We finally arrived home at 12:10 am on Monday morning. We woke at 5:30 for school. Tired and weary, but we are here at school with bells on just beaming about our trip.

Check back for more pictures and Jamie's food update...
