The Short Story
Eleven years ago we met at a cheesy high school dance. Eight years later on an evening walk along a beautiful Koh Samui beach in Thailand we were engaged. We got married six months later. We then lived our lives out for three years in our town of Portsmouth New Hampshire. We loved our life but wanted more. For a year we toyed with moving but didn’t know quite where. Until one day Thailand came back to us. This is our story.
Going to Thailand was a hard decision, but it didn’t take us long. It took us a little over two months from when we decided to move, to getting here. We told our family and friends, quit our jobs a few weeks alter, sold our cars, packed up everything we owned into a storage locker, got our visas, and enrolled in a teaching program!
For a year we lived on the island of Phuket. It’s an island in the south of Thailand on the Andaman Sea.
We taught and I spent my spare time learning to program iOS applications. I always loved design and had always wanted to create a list app that fit my needs. Over a year later, here it is! Please try it out and consider leaving a review:
So here we are, a year later, in Spain. Again, we’re both teaching and I’m continuing to work on iOS development stuff. It turns out, small towns in the South of Spain are almost as cheap as Phuket, Thailand!
We started this blog to share our stories and build a place where we can help and convince others who are pondering this life style choice, that it is in fact, easy and truly worth it. We hope you enjoy reading our adventures just as much as we enjoy writing about them.
Thanks for reading and safe travels.
