Fifty-three Kenyan seventh graders and an English book…GO!

Posted on February 5th, 2014 by BreAnn

There’s something about being handed a falling-apart English book, being given NO guidance or lesson plan, and standing yourself in front of 50+ African seventh graders in a dirty, cement classroom with no electricity, desks falling apart, and being equipped with ONLY a single piece of chalk and your brain and being told by the […]

I have to kill a lion to marry BreAnn?!

Posted on January 22nd, 2014 by James

Well, not exactly…but it sure would help if we were getting married in Kenya in the Maasai culture!  Before I get into the specifics of how many cows I need to give BreAnn’s father in order to ask for her hand in marriage, let me backtrack for a moment… On January 10th, BreAnn and I […]

Interesting trip fact: We never actually planned to come to Vietnam on our RTW trip… it was more a “maybe” on our list. However, the more people kept talking about how wonderful the country was, the more intrigued we became… so we soon found ourselves making our way down the Vietnam coastline. When researching places […]
