Certainly we have found good reasons for leaving the country before that had nothing to do with needing a break from kids, the back to school rush, rodents or floods.  (A few years ago it involved a game of Poker, Sangria and a wager over … [Read more...]

When Challenges Lead to New Chapters

Devon and I and our kids, four at the time, spent almost a year traveling the world.  We visited Nanning and Hong Kong, in China... Manila and Bagiuo in the Philippines and Hawaii.
