Hello, everyone! I’m Emmanuel, and I’m thrilled to share with you the story of my family and our incredible journey around the world. Together with my wife, Ernita, and our two wonderful children, Claire and Sebastian, we’ve turned our passion for education and adventure into a lifestyle that takes us from one country to another, always in pursuit of new experiences and life-changing moments.
My wife and I work in American schools across the globe, a career choice that we fell in love with for its ability to merge our professional interests with our insatiable curiosity about the world. International education has gifted us with an opportunity to do what we love while exploring different cultures, meeting new people, and broadening our horizons.
Every few years, when it’s time to transition from one school to another, we take a sabbatical year and embrace the Digital Nomad lifestyle. This period allows us to travel at our own pace, explore our surroundings more deeply, and immerse ourselves in the local culture. It’s a beautiful pause that rejuvenates our spirits and rekindles our love for the world and its diverse inhabitants.
But there’s another huge part of our lives that fuels our adventurous spirit: rock climbing. Our friends often joke that we don’t go on vacations; instead, we embark on climbing trips. And they’re not wrong! There’s something exhilarating about scaling a rocky cliff or conquering a challenging boulder problem that makes our hearts race with joy. It’s a shared passion that binds us closer as a family and pushes us to challenge our limits.
Through our travels, work, and rock-climbing adventures, we’ve been fortunate enough to weave together a life that’s fulfilling, exciting, and incredibly rewarding. It’s a life that combines our passion for education, our love for climbing, and our thirst for travel. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
We’re excited to share our experiences, adventures, and lessons with you all. Stay tuned for more stories from our globe-trotting, rock-climbing family adventure!
Remember: life is an adventure. Embrace it, explore it, live it to the fullest!
Emmanuel & Family
