June 1, 2008, Jon began a change in his job role, (with the same company).  This new role will last for 2- 3 years.  It includes going to different locations for assignments that will usually last for 3-4 weeks each.  The company will reimburse the costs of spousal airfare for all assignments that are out of the US , which are scheduled for a minimum of 4 weeks.  They also pay all of Jon’s travel expenses, including airfare,  transportation, hotel, laundry, and basic costs of food (with a daily maximum).  All other expenses for Vicki are at our own expense, including extra charges when applicable for hotel costs and food. 

This was  the beginning of a new season of our lives.  Previously neither of us had been outside the US, with the exception of crossing the border  into Mexico and Canada a few times (before a passport was needed).  In fact, we didn’t even have a passport until we began preparing for the changes.  We will now be traveling to various locations through-out the world for the next 2-3 years.  We decided to send out e-newsletters sharing our adventures with friends and family.   

In June, 2009, one year and eight countries later, (9 counting the US locations), Vicki found this site & decided to post all the old e-newsletters and  add pictures.  We will also began using this site to post all future blogs.  I think this will be an easier way to post blogs for everyone to see and add pictures and videos.  Hope everyone enjoys.

Jon & Vicki
