I am not a serial traveler, at least not anymore. My wife and I spent two years as English teachers in South Korea, and we traveled often. Now, back home, we do our best to see something new every few months. The great thing about living abroad is rediscovering your home, and realizing it’s much more interesting than you once realized. This is a blog about looking under the rug locally for hidden treasures, and for the occasional big adventure when they come by. It’s for afternoon musings, day trips, and long weekends spent outside the cul-de-sac. Mostly, though, it’s about learning about the world through travel. As Mark Twain said, in Innocents Abroad:

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”

Now on to the blog!
