About Us

We’re on a mission to become more connected with the many people of our world. We believe in living like a local, learning the language and doing local things. As we go, we’ll share what we learn.

We’re currently in East Africa. Previously we spent 10 weeks in Egypt learning Egyptian Arabic (see us speaking it here), then time in Israel/Palestine (see my notes on what to call that place, plus me speaking Hebrew). Now we’re learning Swahili (this is our interim video with us telling you to visit Zanzibar!) then go running in Kenya, then Chinese martial arts and many more things — all in different places, in compressed time frames and on limited budgets. We’ll sometimes succeed and often fail, but share what we learn and always make it fun. Join us for the ride!


I want to…
