We’re Kristine and Vinnie. In 2010 we  packed our bags and headed off on an unplanned though highly anticipated year-long voyage to parts heretofore unseen.

Before our trip we were living in San Francisco’s Mission District with our dog Milo. Vinnie co-founded lefora.com, ran the Silicon Valley New Tech Meetup and drank a lot of Anchor Steam.  He’s a geek.

Kristine was the community evangelist for PBwiki.com. She’s not a geek. And although she has deep appreciation for beer, she prefers red wine.

We had a pretty sweet life in the Bay area. A food co-op. A nice big bed. Hot running water. But we left it all behind for an epic year long  jouney in Asia. (And it was risking a lot, here is an example of how well we travel together.)

We quit our jobs, sold everything and shipped Milo back to the suburbs to spend the year with his grandparents.

In a shocking turn of events, we adored Asia and moved to Singapore in 2012.
