Where Did the Real Go
Sean and Erin Douglas
In our efforts to search for a greater quality of life, we decided to track our adventures using the theme "Where Did the 'Real' Go?"
But before we begin, we want to take a moment to give you a quick idea of who we are...
Erin, a free-spirited homeopathic practitioner, spent much of her life growing up in the ranch lands of Alberta, Canada where she earned her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Alberta. It was not long after, however, that she knew that she was not interested in the conventional life that she saw so many others conform to and soon after found herself alone in China with a few dollars in her pocket. Six years later, after travelling extensively through Asia, Erin returned to Canada speaking fluent Mandarin and a list of achievements behind her, some of which include a number of years teaching at the prestigious Guangdong Univeristy, as a daily news anchor for an audience of fifteen million, and an export specialist for North American lighting companies. Upon returning to Canada, Erin's next four years found her working as a marketing and lighting specialist while at the same time, pursuing her passion in health and earning her Degree in Homeopathic Medicine from the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine. Her list of clientele grows by the day and her pursuit in alternative forms of healing is not simply an interest, but a way of life!
Sean, a private yet adventurous soul, grew up in Ontario, Canada. Much of Sean's childhood was spent on carnivals, following the footsteps of his grandfather who was a legendary pioneer in the business. It was during these days that Sean learned the hard lessons of life, family, hardships and perhaps most importantly, the necessity of honour, loyalty and hard work. From the age of nine, Sean worked on the family carnival operating games and developing the skills needed to make it on his own. After dropping out of secondary school and then returning to finish shortly after, Sean left for two years with the carnival, traveling extensively through Canada, until waking up and realizing it was time for more. With his streets smarts behind him, Sean earned his licence in Real Estate, a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Education, a Masters of Education and numerous other academic certifications. During this time he also published dozens of articles as well as a philosophical fiction called "From Storm Clouds Come Angels". After teaching senior secondary school for five years, Sean decided to focus on his business interests which included a growing real estate, stock and investment portfolio while dreaming of new adventures and how he would continue to grow!
Together, we are on the search for new ways to define our lives and roles as global citizens. Finding each other quite by chance, it was over the course of four years that our friendship grew and the commonalities we shared became undeniable. Realizing the rarity of our shared ideology, we knew that our future would include each other and that together we would take on new ideas, philosophies, adventures, experiences and cultures in an effort to define what a quality life is meant to be!
The adventures continues...
