How we got started....

Having met at the International House at the University of California, Berkeley, we have always shared a love of travel and experiencing other cultures.  In December 2002, after living in Tokyo for two years, we packed up our belongings and moved everything back to storage in California and decided to take the opportunity to live out our dream to travel around the world.  It had been years in the making and finally circumstances conspired to propel us on our way - jobless, house-less, car-less, and kid-less, it was now or never.
