To all the people we have met along the way…


I have to say, we are pretty humbled and energized to a different realm right now. After our last post, the positive feedback and encouragement we received brought the biggest smiles to our faces. We read each comment over and over… those from both my business page, personal page and our facebook page.

Then, ,we received a comment on our blog that once again created that warm feeling inside.

Dennis, I hope you don’t mind, but I wanted to share your comment…

Hi folks, Thank you for the post. Adam we’ve not met yet ,and Nicole, i met you right before you all left for Korea, I worked at the Ace in South Shore. Stoked to hear that you are all still living the good life …free and full of the next adventure. I have finally pulled the trigger and decided to do much the same. Put the house up for sale with no real plan, although I am liking what I’m seeing in Northern Maine and it’s just a hop to Europe. I have my two sons 13 and 15 and they are down with the plan as well as a girlfriend and her son who also are looking for a change, so who knows the world is our oyster, with a few changes of course. Anyway, probably run in to you at some point, my experience is the adventurous souls typically do.

Cheers, Dennis S.

This had Adam and I talking about all the people over the years that have asked us for travel help or advice. People we have helped teach in Asia, or friends we met along our travels.

  • We still receive holiday cards from the Kemps who we met in the lobby at breakfast time in New Mexico.
  • Our bestest family friend Kaisa, who we met in Korea in 2009… still speaks to us 🙂 And we get to visit with a few times a year.
  • Vanessa and Rod from Australia that we met sharing a yard and two tiny homes.
  • Dalys read our blog and we helped ignite her excitement of Korea, she is now teaching there.
  • Mr. Lee, who we visited two years ago with the kiddos, we met him when I tutored his son Do Heung back in 2009 in Korea
  • Daniel from Switzerland, whom we met on a Junk Boat in Halong Bay, Vietnam and then stayed at his family farm when we drove through Switzerland.
  • Akemi was our housemate in Japan, we still message with from time to time.
  • The AMAZING Van Der Borden’s we met on our Honeymoon on a cruise ship, they live in the Netherlands and one day, we will see again.
  • Our wonderful neighbors, the Ponce’s, in Tahoe.

Our dream is to travel the world, introduce our kids to culture, people, places, smells, landscape that is different than what they are used to. We want to do this to teach them respect and understanding of life different than the one they are used too. To us, being a bit uncomfortable is where we learn.

If you have met us along our travels or we have helped you in any way, please do share in the comments. It is so much fun to reminisce and think of all of you.

Keep Dreaming and Living because no one is going to do it for you.

-Nicole
