Since last we spoke...

Before we dive right into our next adventure, we suppose it’s only fair to our loyal readers to let you know what we’ve been up to for the last three years. Since last we blogged, travelers EB and Josh finally bit the bullet and got married. They enjoyed three lovely years in Cambridge, MA (and even found good Vietnamese food in Dorchester!) and have just moved back to New York City. EB graduated from law school and is once again adventuring to Asia in between school and work. Josh left consulting to join the much more exciting and sugar-filled world of marketing for the Mars Corporation, where he reminds us all how important it is to have “small moments of joy” (namely candy bars) in our daily lives. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for any sign of Snickers in rural Laos.


We’ll also take the liberty of giving an update on our fellow travelers, who may edit as they see fit. While working as a high powered legal mastermind in San Francisco for a very fancy law firm, Amy met (or really re-met) fellow PHSer and generally all-around fabulous Matt Bell, who wisely snatched her up and they were married last fall. Amy and Matt have just relocated to Los Angeles, where their family of Bells has grown with the addition of Harry, the newest four-legged family member. All signs of him on facebook suggest he is one cute dog.


After astounding readers with all that he could accomplish in 24 hours traveling by himself (let’s be honest – we all thought Jon would still be lost in Hanoi asking if someone could pouch him his passport), Jon graduated from NYU law school and swiftly went on to win the 2008 election for President Obama. Now he is a big deal lawyer in Washington DC where in addition to fighting for justice he also was most recently responsible for the summer associate lunch program. Pretty high powered stuff.

Will there ever be a reunion of this fearsome foursome of travelers? Rest assured, dear readers, of course. Once we find Jon that someone special, perhaps a three couple belated honeymoon could be in order. But until then, it will just be the Kelly-Olken pair – heading off to California, Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam, and Greece. We hope you enjoy the ride!

Is that bottom image Jon or EB? It's hard to tell.
