After working hard in the Bay Area for the last few years, my wife and I have decided to take this next year off to travel before we have kids. We are going to live in Costa Rica from October to February, then we will move to Peru until June. While abroad, we are signed up to take Spanish language classes five days a week for the first three months in Costa Rica. After that, my wife plans on working with Midwives in Peru (she is a Labor and Delivery Nurse). While she helps new mothers in Peru, I will be focusing on my writing. I am just wrapping up my Master's Degree in Creative Writing, and plan on using this time to finish another novel, do some travel writing, keep a blog, and also tinker around with a few other projects I have in mind. We're looking forward to learning Spanish, and having an amazing, life-changing year abroad in Central and South America!
