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

Summer Schedule

It is great to be back in the US again, even though it will only be for the summer. Here is our schedule for the rest of the summer if anyone is wondering. Please feel free to find us during those times, and we can catch up with lunch or something. We'll be jumping around a lot it seems:

July 5 - 8 = Cartersville, GA
July 8 - 17 = Tennessee
July 17 - July 18 = Cartersville
July 19 - July 23 = South Georgia
July 24 - July 25 = Cartersville
July 26 - August 4 = Tennessee
August 4 - August 10 = Cartersville
August 9/10 = Leave for Saudi Arabia

Myrtle Beach was great as Jamie rested, I played golf, and we both enjoyed time with our families on the beach. I was able to purchase and entire new wardrobe of school/work clothing as all of my previous clothes were too large for me.

Some things that we miss so far about China (in no particular order):

1) Not needing a car and the ability to walk everywhere
2) Cheap stuff
3) Our friends
4) Our AYI

Some things we are enjoying in the USA:

1) Seeing family
2) The FOOD
3) Clean air and no city sounds
4) The temperature
5) Cheap golf

I think this would different if we were coming back to stay, but this is a decent list that will let you all know a little bit of what we miss and enjoy.

Be on the lookout for a rather lengthy post outlining what Jamie and I have see the last 2 years. I will also be updating the blog site with a new look and of course changing the name as we transition to Saudi Arabia.
