Who are Bert and Patty?

img_02251Hey there! We’re the famous Bert & Patty (aka Christine & Paul) and we’re from Seattle, United States.

We met back in March 2005. Our first date was a day of kayaking on Lake Union in downtown Seattle. (you know, the safe “day date”). We met on a sunny Tuesday @ 2:30 in the afternoon and ended up finally saying goodnight after 2am . . . not a bad first date. Our second date was even better. We have been enamored with each other since. Some would say we’re connected at the hip and that is just the way we like it.

Three months after meeting I took my first trip out of my safe US/Canada bubble and met Christine in Central America where we traveled around Guatemala for a few weeks, then we flew over to Cuba for a few more weeks.

We’ve since traveled together to over 30 countries together.

We got engaged about 15 months after meeting and got married in 2009 on a wonderful beach in Aitutaki, Cook Islands, then spent 18 months traveling the globe.

Now we’re off on our biggest adventure – we’ve joined the Peace Corps and will live in the Lesser Antilles of the Eastern Caribbean from June 2017 through the end of 2019

Check out our Travel Map to see where we’re traveling to.

    Paul, what an amazing journey. You could not ask for a better start to a new life. I tell people about your story and they never believe it, until I show them your web site. We all still miss you here at Sellen. Good luck and we will keep watching your adventure. Stay safe
