Christi & Tauru

We keep this website to share our activities and adventures with friends and family.

Christi is originally from Pennsylvania. Tauru was born in Vietnam but came to the States when he was five years-old because of the war. He grew up in Southern California. We currently consider Phoenix, Arizona our "home," but we're still on the go.
