While in Beijing, Jason & I had a free evening and decided to explore a night market which made it onto the Amazing Race a few seasons ago ... a place where all kinds of crazy foods are ready to eat! We could not believesome of the things we saw!
Not wanting to be chicken, we decided to buy a stick of scorpions to snack on.
This is as far as I got ... I couldn't do it! So sad ... I did have a couple legs fall off in my mouth though to munch on! (so sick!) Jason was of course, they champion eater!

How we got here ... with a couple babies!
We first met on July 7, 2006. We'd both quit our jobs and gotten rid of nearly all our possessions. We had joined the Peace Corps and were heading to the Kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific. We thought we were prepared for whatever lay ahead ... neither of us had a clue.
Just over 10 months after we first met, we were MARRIED! Since then our adventures have included:
- a year in New York City, living in a Harlem brownstone apartment - going off-the-grid & into a tent-cabin on tiny Angaur island in Palau - living with a bunch of teenagers in Shanghai, China while working as dormitory parents
- off-the-grid again & into a barn on 400 forested acres in Vermont
- at the base of volcanos in beautiful Panajachel, Guatemala
And now ... on the hunt for a new career, we find ourselves in IDAHO!
We love to experience this great big world and hope you will join us for the journey!
