Big Changes

In one year, Rob and I will have visited 7 countries, immersed ourselves in a completely different culture, worked in administration-related positions, and saved a bit of money.


Though our initial plan was to stay in Vietnam for two years, we have decided to head back state side this June.


There are a few things that led to this decision and we feel that it is the right choice to leave. I’ll be honest though, it wasn’t an easy decision to make and I flip-flopped back and forth about it for a month. Ultimately, our health and day-to-day happiness was the deciding factor.


The scariest part? We sold everything. So, if you have any furniture, cars, or warm clothes hanging around, please let us know. (j/k) Our plan is to finish the school year, travel Thailand and the Philippines for a few weeks, and then fly to the states to visit family. From there, we are headed to Denver, a city we have both always wanted to live in.


Have no fear, the blog will continue for the next few months as we travel to Cambodia, Thailand, and the Philippines. But, alas, our last post is getting ever closer.

    I can only imagine how difficult the decision was to return state side; it was an amazing opportunity that you have taken full advantage of and, I’m sure, learned a lot from.
