Hey 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 the Netherlands, Belgium, France, and England.
We got engaged about 15 months after meeting and we are getting married September 1st 2009 on a wonderful beach in Aitutaki, Cook Islands.
Then we are setting off on our biggest adventure so far. We are leaving our wonderful home of Seattle. After over a decade here, we’re taking a big step and moving to Edinburgh, Scotland. We have sold almost everything we own, said goodbye to some really amazing jobs and wonderful friends and will spend 13 months traveling the globe. Our route is to the west, which should make it interesting.
We left on July 31st, 2009. Check out our Travel Map to see where we’re traveling to.
