The Name:

The blog name is meant to reflect the extreme shift in landscape and culture. I moved from the land-locked state of Iowa where I have spent all of my 30 years — aside from brief vacations — to the island nation of the Philippines, maritime referring to living near the sea.

For more information on the Philippines, please visit the following sites:


It’s more fun…

  1. I love the title of your blog Heather -it is great to stay connected to your new world which seems physically so very different from ours. The kids sound wonderful and it sounds like you and the teachers are “in the trenches” together – which is how I describe my relationship with the teachers at East High. I love you and miss you and think of you often…

    • I miss you, too, Karla! I hope the school year is going well for you at East. Every year will get better as the kids grow to love and respect you – it’s impossible for them not to! Enjoy your fall semester at UNI. I miss classes with you most of all!
