Born in Rhode Island, and then we left.


I hope you're enjoying our blog and find it of unquestionable value, as that's always the main goal.

A bit about us, we’re two adventurers in our twenties from Rhode Island, currently based in bush Alaska for the next year before setting off for Dubai for the 2019-2020 school year.

I’m Kenz. I have a B.A. in English with a concentration in Writing, a B.A. in Film Studies, and an M.A. in Elementary Education.

So far, I’ve taught ESL abroad in Ecuador to grades 1-7, and am currently on a two-year contract as a 2nd grade teacher in an ELL and SPED inclusion class. (If you’re curious to know what it’s like teaching out here, I suggest this blog post for my most honest interpretation.)

Although Matt doesn’t do any writing for this blog, he’s still my partner in crime and the other half of Rhode Trippers.

He’s certified as an automotive mechanic, but for the most part, he just follows me around the globe looking for places to go fishing, and is the fan to my fire for international travel.
