About

I am very good at getting myself lost.  I wander away from group tours in unfamiliar cities,  fail to take note of street signs when I go walking in a new place, throw myself into situations I am in no way prepared for.  Sometimes, I think maybe I should work on fixing this.  More often, I relish all that I discover and learn, about my world and myself, by doing so.  So I keep wandering, and getting lost.

When I learned that I had been accepted to be a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Indonesia, I knew I was about to embark on the greatest adventure I had every been on, and that I was going to be more lost than I ever had before.  And thus, this blog began.

I’m a small town farm girl from Central New York, who was mad enough to study English Education as an undergraduate.  I love students and cows and poetry equally, but I love wandering most of all.

  1. Grace, Sounds like an amazing adventure. Cindy Gallagher said you are home for a bit, although I’m not sure how long that is. If you are still around, could we chat for a story in the Times so people can follow your blog? If you’re not able to meet, can I send you a few questions? Best wishes on your adventures, I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read so far. Patty Louise

    • Hello Rizqiyyah! Right now I am in Gorontalo, which is very far from Cirebon. But, I will be working in Jakarta next year, so maybe I could visit then. Do you have an email I could reach you at?
