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

Hoi An to Hue - Day 5

Very relaxing day as we woke up, Jamie and I ran our 5k, had breakfast, checked of the hotel, and headed out for one more stroll around Hoi An before departing to Hue in the afternoon. We walked around the old town for a while. The girls bought some silk robes, and we walked through a very interesting central food market. Lunch was sub par at a backpacker joint.

We rested by the pool lounges at the hotel before hopping on a bus to Hue. We were supposed to have a regular bus; but due to a travel agency error, they overbooked our bus, so we had to take a sleeper bus. This was good since Kathy's back is still hurting.

3 hours later, we arrived in a rainy Hue, checked into our hotel, the Holiday Hotel, and went searching for a restaurant we had read about. We couldn't find it, so we settled on a place with more sub par food.

Tomorrow, we'll be touring the old imperial palace of Hue as well as some emperor tombs around the city.

Check back from pictures and updates of tomorrow.
