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

Too Much Brake

From Thailand - Day 7 - Chiang Mai

Here is a photo that was emailed to us by the friends we made in Chiang Mai on our Flight of the Gibbons adventure.

We were given these little wooden "V's" and when we slid down the zipline, sometimes we'd have to place them on the line behind us in order to slow down and brake. Jamie found broke too early one time and was suspended about 3 meters from the platform. Our guide had to go and get her. Our new friend Beth was able to take this great picture as well as email us some others.

Jamie and I are back into the swing of things at school. We've booked our flight, Hong Kong Hotel, and Beijing Trip and are ready to go when Jamie's parents get here on the night of January 24th.

The city is decorating for Chinese New Year and I'm sure it will be a buzz as the time approaches. We'll take some pictures and keep you posted on the events.

We hope everyone's New Year has had a great start. Take care! Drop us an email every now and then.
