We’re heading back to our favorite foreign country: Japan! Departure dates: Jan 22 for Caitlin, and Mar. 22ish for Zac. :)
Okay, so maybe it’s not really an adventure, but, it’s where we’re headed! After about 10 months in Peru and 2 weeks in Mexico, we’ll be with our respective families on opposite coasts for about 6 weeks. Then, we head back to our home base of San Diego for at least a year of surf and sunshine. (Yay, sunshine!)
We were thinking about heading over to Japan right after Peru, but with Passport renewals coming up and the ever-increasing issues with Fukushima’s radiation, we’re putting it off for at least another year. Don’t worry though, we’re not done with Asia yet! Thanks for following us all around the globe, and we’ll keep on doing stuff to keep you interested. See ya in San Diego!
It’s about as official as it can get. January 2013 = Peru.
After our first few weeks traveling in Asia, Zac and I started to realize how much of the world we haven’t seen. Neither of us has any desire to pursue a 9-5 career back in the states, so we’ve signed up to teach English as a foreign language, and our next stop is Peru.
It’s a relatively simple procedure. We’re taking a certification course this fall, then hopping on a plane in January. Neither of us will have a job before we get there, but we’ve already see tons of job postings for this semester, so it shouldn’t be too stressful. Plus, we’ve still got some leftover savings from this trip, as well as our freelance clients.
Zac’s got a bit of a background in Spanish, but I can hardly roll my ‘r’s’ so this should be interesting. I just hope Rosetta Stone can get the job done. I’m sure I’ll update this a bit more this summer, but SEE YA IN PERU!
At 11:40am on Tuesday, February 28th, Zac and I head off to Singapore, the first stop on a 3-month backpacking trip throughout Asia. The running and race options may be few and far between, but I’m determined to drag Zac with me on short runs at least twice a week. Check out the blogroll to see how successful or futile my efforts are, and follow us on our next big adventure!
