The Next Adventure – Living Abroad as a Family
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
– Andre Gide
I enjoy the sensation of being in a new place and the growth that follows. So must Nadine, she married me.
Nadine and I decided to teach abroad in early 2013 and landed perfect jobs for us at Cayman International School.
Our original plan involved traveling south from Alaska down the western coast of the Americas and return north from Tierra del Fuego up the Eastern coast of the Americas. That would have proven to be more challenging and expensive than our original around the world trip in 2006. So we found an alternative that still exposes our children to the richness of this big world and allows us to be financially responsible at the same time.
We shall see what the future holds for us as we embrace island time here in the Cayman Islands.
It is better by noble boldness to run the risk of being subject to half the evils we anticipate than to remain in cowardly listlessness for fear of what might happen.
