My wife (Wendy), daughter (Natalie - now 11) and I love to travel. We have taken time to do 2 big extended trips. The first was Wendy and I through 15 countries over 18 months in '98 - '00 traveling very local and moving every 2-3 nights through Asia / Africa / Latin America with the highlights of that trip being Australia, Nepal, Laos, Madagascar and Chile. From '09 to '10 we did a 12 month trip through 10 countries with Natalie - teaching her 3rd grade on the road - again through Asia / Africa / Latin America but this time staying put in one place for longer periods of time. Highlights from this trip were Australia, Vietnam, South Africa and Uruguay. We have also been through most of Central America on vacations over the years - Costa Rica is one place we keep returning to - and love authentic experiences where ever we travel.
Home is close in on the east side in Portland, Oregon and the outdoor lifestyle that makes the Pacific Northwest the place we always come back to.
