Testing Facebook embedding

Hi there, and sorry for this spam-like post. It is just me, the nurse, seeing if I could figure this whole Facebook embedding thing out. I got the instructions from WordPress’ support site. Pretty cool stuff.   And, in case you didn’t notice, this is also an ad for our Facebook page. We are very…

Umm, where exactly are we going..?

So, since we have decided to go to Taiwan (YAY!!!), we must know what it is about. In the past, we have done some major research on countries like Uganda, Hong Kong, Puerto Rico and Iceland. I know some people will tell you they just go to places and see what’s there, but seriously, have…

We have made one long trip and several shorter ones. However, we do not make much money, and these trips were partially made when one of us was still a student. Yet still we are not in a lot of debt or paying back credit card bills from two years ago. The key to that…

The nurse and the engineer

  Hi there, And thanks for finding us! Since you got this far, how about you got to know us a bit better? We are a Finnish couple, a nurse (the “I” in our social media) and an engineer (AKA the enginerd). In early December 2016, we packed our bags, quit our jobs and hit…
