Our Traveling Zoo

We are a husband (Shon) and wife (Jenia) writing about the excitement of working, living, and traveling with family, both abroad and at home in the United States. We've been teaching overseas more or less since 2012, when we started with ADEC in the UAE, and we've lived and worked in Russia, spent a year back in the USA, and are now in south China. While living abroad we have welcomed two lovely little monsters into this wondrous world, and we've gone from having tidy, fast-paced adventures to having the kind of slow, sloppy ones that a family experiences together.
