The Wongenbergs are traveling through South America for one year, starting in February 2014.
Esteban (Craig’s spanish name) is a civil engineer at his day job. He believes in incremental retirement (the world is a place worth exploring, so why wait?). He enjoys black and white film photography, backpacking, soccer, running, and most of all, travel.
Sheena is an oncology nurse (with a creative writing degree… liberal arts can be so tempting when you’re young). Although this trip wasn’t her original idea, she is excited about seeing the world and living in a foreign country. She likes to knit, watch movies and TV shows with happy endings, and read romance, mystery, and nonfiction books. When she gets up the energy (this is rare), she likes to take ballet classes and do yoga. Otherwise, her life is pretty staid and uneventful, which is how she likes it.
The Wongenbergs hail from Seattle, Washington.
