Gold Stars. Double Rainbows.
Tea. Chocolate. Mate. Travel.
Simplicity. Nature. Books. Fun.
We’re Allison & Isaiah, a husband and wife duo who ditched our much-appreciated jobs in Indiana for the relaxing life of Ireland. Well, for two months anyway. Next we spent two years living in a small, dusty, charming town in Paraguay working as Peace Corps Volunteers. Then we set out on another adventure where we slowly traveled our way up South America and returned to the USA.
We created this blog for a number of reasons: 1) To update family and friends while we were away. 2) To reflect on our experiences. 3) To remind our old and forgetful future selves what we did back in the day. And 4) Maybe it will help you?
Here are some of our popular topics (more in the sidebar):
We’re so glad you’re here. In fact, as a thank you for stopping by we award you one gold star. Go ahead and try it on. Nice…it suits you. There’s lots more where that came from, so stick around and come back soon! Love photos? Hop over to Isaiah’s other website, Yuty365.com, where he captured a photo a day of our life in Yuty, Paraguay.
Oh by the way, the tales you find on this blog don’t reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps. They’re our accounts and reflections of our (mostly) gold star experiences. That’s what makes ‘em so authentic. Grab some
coffee mate and enjoy!
