About

With a passion for traveling, exploring, and the natural world, my husband and I are twenty-somethings living in Cambodia. We left the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 2011 for the international world of teaching and have never looked back. (Except in longing for cheese curds and Bloody Marys…)

This blog is a collection of anecdotes, stories, photos, and experiences from our time teaching and learning overseas.

Hopefully it keeps me close to my roots while I spread my wings…

      Thank you so much for all your phantastic stories, photos and information. Any other tipps or contacts for Kuwait?

    Wow! Sean is a pretty entertaining writer too! Maybe you should carry a can of tuna fish with you when you go out at night. If you get mugged by a roving band of cats, just throw the tuna and RUN! Keep the stories coming…

    Hello.. I stumbled on your post on grapevinekuwait.com about zumba at ais… Can you please pass the contact detals to me and are the classes still on?

    • Hello! Yes, there are fantastic Zumba classes offered on the AIS campus. (The American International School of Kuwait, it’s in Maidan Hawally.) You can contact sharon.holoboff@aiskuwait.org for the schedule! Tomorrow there is a free drop-in class at 4pm. Just come to the school!

  10. I’ve never found a blog about someone teaching in Kuwait! Awesome! I taught in China for a few years, but this seems much more exotic! I can’t wait to read more of your blog. :]

    Hi!
    I was searching about Mutla Ridge in Kuwait and came across your blog. It is a very nice blog, congrats. I’m planning to go to Mutla Ridge but I’m working in Kuwait and don’t know anyone here except for my co-workers who would not be interested in going. Is it safe to go by yourself? Did you take some sort of tour?
    I appreciate if you could throw some light on this for me.
    Thanks,
    Gustavo

  18. Hi there – This is the Kuwait Times and we were wondering if we might have permission to republish some of your photos of Mutlaa ridge? Specifically the one showing the Kuwait city skyline in the background? We would be glad to credit you as the photographer or the blog, as you like. If you agree, can you pls email me back at your earliest convenience. Thank you.
