About

Hi!
Are you new here?
Let me get you all caught up:

I'm Jacqueline!
He's Sean.
And we have a baby daughter Ruby and a fur baby dog Bubu.

We live in Taiwan!
We work at an international school. 
I teach middle & high school humanities.
He teaches 4th grade.

We've been together for 13 years and are from the Pacific Northwest. We moved to Taiwan in 2012 (it's okay if you need to look it up on a map-- I had to before signing my contract!). We're having a great time and have no plans of repatriating... like, possibly, ever (don't worry-- we are a little boggled by that too). Our grand plan as of now is pretty simple: live a life full of adventure while teaching abroad and globetrotting the world. Maybe we will stay in Taiwan for a long time, but probably not.

Who knows where we'll go?!

Boy & Girl Globetrot is one of my many hobbies. 

Sometimes I write about our wonky expatriate lives. I find living in Taiwan gives me a lot of amusing stories to share.

Other times, I write about our adventures overseas. We travel often-ish, and we usually have one or two bloopers along the way. .

Lots of times, I write about scoot adventures. We own two scooters and have way too much fun exploring Taiwan on them! My friends back home tease me endlessly for coining the term "scoot" as a verb and "scoot adventure" as a noun. What can I say? I really, really love those scooters and scooter trips!

Other times, I post just to share some photos. I have a crush on my Canon and Polaroid. 

Sometimes I post a lot because I cannot help myself; my brain is very busy and creative and wordy. Sometimes, though, being a full time wife and teacher and runner and reader and Gilmore Girls fanatic means that weeks go by with nothing here.

Don't worry.
I am probably still alive.

I'm most likely cooking dinner or jogging around the lake or hanging out with my husband or teaching a bunch of 13-year-olds how to talk like the Greasers from The Outsiders or drinking a really big cup of coffee or scooting through the mountains of Taiwan or reading a good book or watching a movie while chowing down on popcorn sprawled out on our five person couch.

You can definitely expect to hear from me often though as we can't leave our scooters sitting too long before taking them out on another adventure! 
HAPPY READING!
