About us

Welcome to our blog, SagaUnscripted.

As a family, originally from Texas, living abroad, (also known as "expat" according to this definition) we mostly write about our international teaching and childbirth adventures with some natural living thrown in. We've lived in Guatemala 2009-2011; Abu Dhabi city and Ruwais, in the United Arab Emirates 2012-2015; San Jose del Cabo, Mexico 2015-2016 and Phnom Penh, Cambodia 2016- present. We have been international teachers in most of these places, (Adina in between pregnancies) and now in Cambodia Ben is finishing his doctorate while also being a principal. We include personal life experiences from all of these places and mainly use this space to keep parents and grandparents up to date with what's going on in our lives and to talk about what's different in the cultures we are in at the time. We never know where we'll end up next, hence, the unscripted saga.
