Where we met

We met in a Canadian bar in Kaohsiung, Taiwan in 2006. Katie stole Geoff's hat, and we've been together ever since. And they say crime doesn't pay...

Where We've Been

Since meeting, we've lived together in Taiwan, Prague, Mexico, Budapest, Calgary, and Vancouver. We've traveled to 50+ countries together, and now we're showing our daughter the world.

Where we are

We currently live in Budapest, Hungary, where we spend our time hunting for the best beer gardens and rooftop terraces. We also use Budapest as a base for exploring Europe.
