The Basics

We’re Tommy and Emily, a twenty+ couple from Minnesota who decided to turn our quarter-life crisis into an adventure! Instead of settling down in the States, we packed a couple bags and are now in China for 10 months of teaching English. After that, who knows? The world is ours to explore.


We’re currently teaching English in Sinan, in the Guizhou province of China. It’s a lovely mountain city divided by the Wujiang River.  Only 5 Westerners have lived in Sinan before, which means it retains very authentic Chinese culture!


We left for China on August 21, 2017.  Our teaching contract runs through early July, approximately 10 months.


While we both enjoyed our life in Minnesota, we weren’t set enough into career paths or financial obligations to feel tied to the area. We knew there was a lot to explore in the world, and we decided an English teaching contract was one of the easiest ways to get started.
