“In the places I go, there are things that I see that I never could spell if I stopped with the Z…”

Aaron & BokeumWelcome Beyond the Zebra!

We are Aaron and Bokeum, an American guy and a Korean gal currently living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.We started this blog with a few goals in mind. Like most travel blogs, we want to document our adventures and give some tips and advice to fellow travelers, but we also want to share what it’s like to be an international couple exploring the world together.In case you were curious, the title of our blog was “inspired” by a fantastic children’s rhyme called “On Beyond Z” by American poet Dr. Seuss.

“You can stop, if you want, with the Z.
Because most people stop with the Z.
But not me!!!
In the places I go, there are things that I see
That I never could spell if I stopped with the Z.
I’m telling you this ‘cause you’re one of my friends.
My alphabet starts where your alphabet ends!”

Thanks for visiting!
This poem speaks a lot to us, specifically because Bokeum and I grew up with completely different alphabets, and we are learning a third (Vietnamese) together.
