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!

Well, the protest ended in Thailand, so Jamie and I are cleared for take off to Thailand. This is bit of a relief. Amazing how some people around here blow things off and others absolutely are scared to death about things. I wasn't too concerned about entering Thailand. They are not targeting Westerners or anything like that. India, however, I'm not too sure that we are that adventurous. There are some families still going to Mumbai. I wish them a safe travel. Obviously, the odds of something happening are slim, but I feel good about my trip to Thailand. We'll be safe and stay away from the lingering protestors just in case.
I've put a new poll up on the side. Our last poll proved to be wrong, so let's all try and get this one right this time. It looks as though unless I we find a bunch of friends by the end of December, my goal of 50 followers will run a bit short. Only 29 followers to date, which is still pretty good. I wonder how many of those are still around. Oh well, enjoy the poll and be sure to check back for updates concerning our trip to Thailand. Jamie and I are going into Hong Kong this weekend to buy some books for our trip. Between the flights, trains, buses, and other means of public transportation, we'll need to keep occupied.
