What started as a #homelesshoneymoon for us as newlyweds, evolved into A House of Monks as our little family began to grow. We always loved photographs and words, so documenting our life-adventures became a natural way for us to add a couple of hobbies to our daily lives. We hope that you enjoy. Don't Forget to Follow us on our Social Media Websites below!

Did you ever get sick eating the local food?

We are both adventurous eaters, and, as most travelers find out quickly, if you eat like a local you will save big time! Street food, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and the local markets were not off limits to us at all, and we never had to hail to the porcelain king for it. I (Bree) only got sick one time, when I made a bad decision to buy jello in these little baggies being sold on the street by a cute little Bolivian girl. I know that you normally have to boil water to make jello, so I thought that I would be fine, and she was too cute to pass up. Twenty-four hours later, I was a mess for another twenty-four hours more. It was one of those decisions that I made where I could not quite compute the risk to reward, and I definitely paid for it.
