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?
