We are two Americans who started out our married life in Ecuador. Less than a year later, we moved to Indonesia. This blog is just about what it’s like.
We wanted a way for friends and family to keep up with our life far from home, in a more user-friendly way than blitzing people’s e-mail inboxes with photos and tidbits every week. Also, it enables us to describe some of the ups and downs of life abroad to people who haven’t been there (yet).
The story so far: We lived in Ecuador while Katherine was working at the UN World Food Programme. Bruno moved there after our wedding, got a visa and a job, and we had many adventures. That was Chapter 1. In 2013, Bruno was offered a job with the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) in Indonesia. Now it’s Katherine’s turn to search for jobs. And we’re both exploring a whole new land together, again. So, welcome to Chapter 2!
Yes, we are aware that we are treading clichéd ground — (“Two Americans blog about their experiences in a foreign country! Omg!”) — but it won’t be like that, we promise.
So, here it is. Enjoy.
