Hi! I'm a teacher, writer, publisher, and adventurer who loves to learn new things and explore the world. LilyAnnFouts.com is my virtual home where I share details about where I'm traveling (including places like Antarctica, Africa, and Ecuador) projects I'm working on (like an earthbag house, a business and a couple of books), and more! Learn more about me on the "About Lily" page!
