My husband and I are two Americans who want our kids to grow up experiencing other cultures and landscapes, to speak multiple languages and extend their comfort zone way beyond what a typical life and education in the U.S. can offer. After years of International Schools and language lessons, we’ve decided that the best way to offer our children a global perspective is to get out and live it.
It is my philosophy that happiness doesn’t come from making oneself as comfortable as possible, but from the challenge of overcoming the uncomfortable. This blog is meant to document our experiences as our comfort zones constantly change – sometimes by choice and sometimes unexpectedly.
Along with our triumphs and struggles, I hope to include practical information for anyone thinking about breaking out on their own adventure. I’ve found that the hardest comfort to leave behind is our family and friends, so please come along with us in spirit. Share our experiences vicariously!
