My name is Andrew. My girlfriend, Courtney, and I are originally from the Maritime provinces in Canada and are now teaching English in Japan. We found this site and have been using it to keep our families and friends up to date on what we are doing. As well, we are using it as a personal diary and journal so that we will remember all the little things we do. After we are finished teaching we are going to make our way back overland to Canada. We both enjoy looking at everyone's pictures and are just making our first entries into the forum world!
