All About Us


Hi we are Nick and Olivia, and we’re embarking on our first big adventure.  We both grew up in Houston, Texas.  We got married in June of 2011, and decided it was time for a change.  After graduating college with teaching degrees, we figured there was no bigger adventure than moving away from everything we know and starting a new life in a new country.  After much searching, God led us to Taiwan!  We got on a plane in August 2012 and have never looked back!  This blog attempts to catalogue our adventures living in Penghu County, Taiwan.  It also is a way for everyone back home to live our adventure with us.  We are trusting God that He has great plans for us here and that He will always take care of us.  It’s a great feeling when you learn to let God take control and follow His lead!  Sit back, relax, and journey with us!

    Hi! I stumbled across your blog after Googling “teaching English in Penghu”. I’m teaching in New Taipei City now, and last summer when I went to Penghu for vacation, I LOVED it! Could you email me with some more details? I couldn’t really find a better way to contact you, and I would rather hear the REAL description of the job than the sugary version from the employment agency 🙂 Thank you SO much!
