Hello, I'm Flora.

I started this blog in May 2010 to document our move from San Jose, California to Singapore (with our two dogs). It also served as a way to show our family and friends back home what we were up to while living abroad in Southeast Asia. Eventually, it became a travelogue of our adventures big and small, near and far. I was even a "Best Travel Blog" nominee in the 2011 Singapore Blog Awards

In January 2012 we moved back to San Jose. We weren't planning on buying a house, but we fell in love with a little Victorian house near downtown San Jose. After practically living out of suitcases while living abroad, it's nice to have a place we can call our own. It's also a lot of fun having a backyard (our dogs Stan and Joe love it, too). Our adventures may have changed, but I still like documenting them.

We're realizing just how great our hometown and homestate are after being away for a few years. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder. Jeff and I are spending a lot of time rediscovering familiar places and exploring new ones in San Jose and elsewhere. We love a good road trip. But we love San Jose more. Of course, I'm blogging about it along the way.
