About

Peter and I on our graduation day, proudly sporting our “future Peace Corps volunteer” hat-toppers.

Hello! My name is Nicci. I was born and raised in Utah, then moved to Portland, Oregon when I was 20 years old. I couldn’t get enough of the comparatively diverse environment, so my restless soul decided it was time to travel. My life partner, Peter, and I, applied to join the Peace Corps together in August of 2011. Finally, in June 2012, we got the news that we’d be moving to Vanuatu in the South Pacific.

As important as it is to me to get out there and see the world, I know not everyone is so fortunate to get these experiences. Or maybe some are curious about what it’s like to live on a hot, sticky island with no electricity, etc., but would never want to try it for themselves for two years. Well, that’s why I started this blog. In addition to keeping in touch with friends and family, I wanted to open a window to anyone who feels so inclined to learn about the world through my experiences.

Now we are returned from life abroad and rebuilding life back in the States. Please enjoy reading about our thoughts and experiences. Even better, leave your own stories and ideas in the comments. Thanks for dropping by!

*Note: Most posts will be by me, Nicci, though hopefully Peter will feel inclined to make some contributions. After all, the whole idea behind this thing is seeing things from different perspectives, right?

  1. Great start on what I think will be a great resource for all of the people who love and adore you! And those who like and are interested in your adventure. Thanks for doing this, I’m looking forward to future posts.

  2. I think what you two are doing there is quite admirable. I enjoy reading about your experiences and perceptions.. I also really enjoyed Pete’s paper on the Peace Corp Prime Directive, who else would think to compare the PC and StarTrek – LOL. Really enjoy the pics too. Especially enjoyed the one of the Coconut (Robber) crabs. Would love to see some pics of them moving. Would love to see more pics in general. Keep up the good work there 🙂

    1. Aw! Thank you! Such kind words are always a comfort and motivation. Sorry we tend to fall down on the blog for months at a time, but we’ll do our best to keep in rolling whenever we have internet access!
